  • *****

    Great food, great coffee, great service, great prices. I loved it; will be coming back. I ordered a custom omelet and coffee. The omelet was cooked perfectly, and came with amazing potatoes and toast. The staff was super friendly and accommodating, and the setting is nice and cozy. It was an awesome way to start my Sunday morning.

  • *****

    A friend of the family recommended the blackboard cafe. I enjoyed my meal and so did my parents. Everything was fresh and delicious! It's a very small place so reservations are a good idea. Service was good and restaurant was clean. I was surprised that the menu had many choices. I will go back when I'm back in the area.

  • *****

    Our favorite spot for brunch or Lunch! Excellent food, friendly staff and the best variety of Cheesecake in the area.

  • *****

    My girlfriend and I come every Sunday. She usually gets the hungry man wrap, I try to mix it up every weekend. They had a gyro special a few weeks ago that was soooo good, I had to get it 2 consecutive weekends (bring it back, please!!). They have the BEST cheesecake north of NYC. Their lattes are delicious, and all other baked goods are delicious. We love the staff, and love that Andrew and Beau socialize and make it a personal experience. Will be back every Sunday, guy, keep up the work.

    A little hole in the wall of greatness.. Breakfast was awesome, very delicious ????????????????

  • *****

    The Blackboard Cafe is excellent. BEST place in Wappingers, by far!!

  • *****

    I always love coming here for lunch. It is a unique comfortable place and the sandwiches with always been great. The menu is kept on the wall (hence Blackboard) and you have a large variety to choose from. Service has been very good too. My only flaws are that they could use more space and their street sign is small. Who knows how many times I just drove by it before my friend took me to Blackboard six months ago?

  • *****

    Had an excellent time checking this place out today. Very tasty food and super nice people! This is probably exactly what you're looking for if you want breakfast/brunch any day of the week. Hearty eggs, meats, lots and LOTS of daily specials, mimosas, pancakes and waffles galore. You will find something you like here.

    A better coffee selection with specialty drinks would be my only hope/suggestion. However the black coffee was good! Thank you all for a lovely meal.

    Great food and amazing service. Definitely going back! ????????

    My Husband and I were in this morning and our breakfast was great. The owner was super nice and accommodated our needs (Jalapeo, lol). Their breakfast wrap has been my favorite from day one. Give them a shot!!

  • *****

    My wife and I were looking for a comfortable restaurant close to home with good food and a friendly atmosphere!
    We were excited to find the Blackboard Cafe in the heart of Wappingers Falls!
    The menu and food are exceptional, the servers and owners are very friendly and appreciative!
    As a man who truly enjoys eating I would highly recommend this little Gem of a Cafe!
    ...and the cheesecake is unbelievable!

  • *****

    I couldn't decide if I liked the food, or the service better! My girlfriend and I came here for brunch one weekend after searching for places in the area. We were greeted right away, and our server was very personable, and funny! He treated us like regulars, even though we had never been here before. From what I saw there was a little bit of limited seating, but no one had to wait for a table. They played coffeehouse music, which set a nice laid back vibe. I had the banana foster french toast, and she had the chefs omelette accompanied by mimosas. Everything was delicious, and filling! I would definitely recommend, and would go back again.

    The food is delicious and tasty. I highly recommend!!!

    Excellent food & friendly staff.

    Awesome. The corn nuggets were to die for !

  • *****

    Great breakfast, friendly staff. It took a bit of time to get our food, but it tasted great - a good choice if you are not in a big rush

  • *****

    The people that work here is what makes this place great. Good food helps, of course... but you never feel you're inconveniencing the staff and they're ways incredibly fast and accommodating. A special menu changes with the seasons.

  • *****

    Great service, cozy atmosphere, yummy breakfast. Everything a roadtripper can wish for.

  • *****

    My hubby and I had lunch today for the first time and was extremely satisfied. He had breakfast and I had the blackened shrimp wrap. Excellent! Cute cafe with a great menu and specials. Friendly and relaxed. Will definitely be back again soon.

  • *****

    I always try to eat local when traveling for work and after eating at The Blackboard Cafe I am so glad I stumbled in today! In the area for another day and night and will definitely be back before I leave town.

  • *****

    Went to this place on a whim. Was looking for a place to enjoy a nice brunch and mimosa, and the Blackboard cafe certainly delivered. I really enjoyed the small & cozy environment. The food options were plentiful, definitely something there to satisfy everyone's cravings. The staff were excellent in all ways. I would highly recommend this place for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dessert. The desserts looked delicious but I was stuffed from the meal. See you next time!

  • *****

    This is a favorite spot for my girlfriend and I. We are frequent customers and have enjoyed many a weekend brunch here.

    Our favorites are the Bananas foster french toast which is a simply divine and unparalleled explosion of flavor in your mouth. I highly recommend.

    They also have a caramel apple crisp waffle that is among the best breakfast creations that I've ever enjoyed. They can also throw down some mean bacon and eggs.

    This place has a very homey feeling and the food has that flair that feels very personal

    Love love love! Fabulous to say the least!

  • *****

    While they may have a smaller menu; the food and drink they do serve is well crafted and made exactly to order, the personal service and attention to care set this small cafe apart.

  • *****

    Every meal has been great. Might be a little more expensive than you are used to ,unless you are a foodie.

  • *****

    This café is amazing. Excellent service, with very friendly staff. The food was great, the atmosphere was great. I definitely recommend stopping by and taking a bite. Thanks to my friend who took me there for lunch. Chef Andrew this is pure awesomeness. Oli

    Wow, had the tri-colored cheesecake and it was out of this world! Just as soon as I thought I've tasted every kind of cheesecake in the world, this little gem comes along and transformed my tastebuds. The Blackboard Cafe actually invented a new kind of cheesecake! Fantastic!

  • *****

    This place was ridiculously good. I had the hummus plate and it was HEAVEN.

  • *****

    Was very excited to try this place. Came for a late breakfast. Service was warm and friendly. Lots of choices between the menu and specials. The place is cute and decor, very eclectic.

    There was a bit too long of a wait for our food and it came out in shifts. I asked for no toast - I got toast. My Dad asked for dry toast, waitress noticed the buttered toast on his plate - took it away and returned about 7 min later with his correct order and my hubs order. I was starving but didn't want to eat if my companions didn't have food, so I was famished and drooling by the time we could all eat.

    My omelette was good, but pretty greasy. Home fries were delish. Husband really liked his French Toast. Coffee was excellent and HUGE.

    The only thing that would keep me from returning is how uncomfortably hot as blue blazes it was in there on a summer morning. The fan blowing in the little dining area was not enough to cool it down - needs an A/C upgrade - stat ;)

  • *****

    Best omelette I've ever had, hands down. Spinach, American cheese, and tomatoes. Not dry in the slightest, like so many other places. Comparing this omelette to a diner version is like drinking Budweiser and then finally stumbling upon fresh American craft beer. You'll never go back, unless you seriously have to. Why would you though? Go and Yelp them out with a review.

  • *****

    Great food, great service. The food was fantastic, fresh and fluffy (I had the waffles). There are so many deserts that you just have to come back for more. And we will (even though we live in Staten Islandl.

  • *****

    I like the small cafe style, good atmosphere and good service. Good food all around. French toast, waffles, eggs and great home fries. I look forward to going there often.

  • *****

    Tiny place with great food. People there are very friendly. 'Like' them on Facebook and you will see the blackboard offerings every morning (I love that!).
    Just go, you can thank me later :-)

  • *****

    I absolutely love this place!! The food and service is amazing and the Poppy's chicken sandwich is the best! I literally crave it!

  • *****

    I visited yesterday on a whim and boy, what a good choice to make! I had one of their specials- a kielbasa, egg, cheese and potato wrap, and every part of it was delicious! The place is cheery and quiet, and I'll definitely be back soon for another try.

  • *****

    Great food....excellent staff...small town feeling....try their bake goods

  • *****

    I had another great experience at BlackBoard Cafe. The food was so good :). I recommend the bright and white wrap. You can tell when they make the food they care about what their doing and take pride in it. The atmosphere is so nice and relaxed. Everyone that works there is very friendly.

  • *****

    Simple, delicious meal at a great price. Love getting breakfast here on Sundays! A few outdoor tables are a nice option. Overall, great spot.

  • *****

    Deluxe in every way... Absolutely the finest pea soup anywhere. I very much enjoyed my fish sandwich. Outstanding potato salad. Sorry I ran out of room for desert. I'll be back with my wife in arm. She is going to love this place.

    Server and owners were very welcoming and helpful.

  • *****

    My friends and I tried this place at random and it was amazing!! Everything was delicious (the desserts are ridiculously good - save room if you can), the staff was really friendly, and service was quick. I'll definitely be back if I'm ever in the area again!!

  • *****

    I've eaten here several times and the food is always good, the atmosphere always relaxed and the staff is always friendly. One of the best places to eat in the area, I highly recommend it.

  • *****

    This place is great. We have being here several times and we left happy each time. The food and pastry were excellent and the service was great.

  • *****

    This is the best place to eat in Dutchess County, actually, the Hudson Valley. I have spent almost every lunch break here, trying various dishes from the mastermind, Andrew, and becoming very friendly with Bo and Michael, and I have got to say I'm blown away every single time. Today I tried the grand mariner French toast, no words to describe it. It was perfect. The specials here are to die for. The innovation is simply remarkable. Even the classics from penne ala vodka to the southern fried chicken, each day it's different and each day it's exceptional. If you think you've had a great meal somewhere, think twice and come here. You'll never go anywhere else. From breakfast to dinner I have yet to be disappointed. Don't get me started about the desserts and baked goods. The RAINBOW COOKIE CHEESECAKE IS UNREAL. THE HYPE IS REAL. This place is the best kept secret that needs to be revealed.

  • *****

    We had lunch here today and it was really wonderful. Outstanding service overall. Everything was really fresh and tasty. The cheesecake selection is top notch. We will make sure to be back on our next visit.

  • *****

    This place is incredible. I ordered the Schmedric Starter and I was very impressed. The veggies were very fresh, and the humus was probably the best I've ever had. I also ordered their black cherry soda- it was very refreshing and I liked that I had to option to try something new. When my food came, they realized they had given me more humus than usual- I was not complaining though. The owners were so nice and the atmosphere there was so relaxing and welcoming. I will definitely be coming back, and ordering extra humus.

  • *****

    Came by with the family after Storm King. Small but service friendly and enjoyed the blackboard cafe club roast beef, the Italian panini and of course the rainbow cheese cake. I love simple and fresh food. Fresh goes a long way.

  • *****

    If you're looking for a great meal this small but cozy cafe fits the bill. The food presentation is only surpassed by the awesome taste. Stopped by with my family for the first time and we will be back. The food is delicious and the staff is warm and friendly. A great place to eat in Wappinger Falls.

  • *****

    Finally ate here for the first time this morning. My wife had your normal two eggs over easy, toast & the BEST home fries we've had!!!!!!
    I had a breakfast special....two eggs over easy, two fresh, made in house biscuits with sausage gravy. .both the biscuits & gravy were phenomenal. Also included was a serving of homefries......Have I mentioned how great they are?? ? ? ? LOL

    Can't wait to try lunch here or maybe their prime rib dinner they have on Saturdays .........

  • *****

    The food and atmosphere of this place are amazing! Everything is so fresh and delicious while to staff is so friendly and involved! The list of daily specials are so wide and the deserts are to die for! I would definitely recommend! I'll be back!

  • *****

    I've been to the Blackboard Cafe 2 times and each experience I had there was great. The staff is very warm and welcoming and attentive they make you feel at home there and did I mention the food it's absolutely delicious. I order different things each time I went and both dishes were great. I wouldn't change anything about this place.

  • *****

    Yesterday, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, my husband and I stopped in to The Blackboard Cafe to have some lunch. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. The list of specials was a mile long and everything sounded so delicious, it was hard to choose. The first thing that strikes you is a display case of the most out-of-this world looking desserts you have ever seen. I'm not kidding, it was spectacular. Our waiter Mike was friendly and made me a delicious fresh-brewed iced coffee. We were poring over the menu trying to choose when the chef came out to chat with us. I decided on a burger, but wanted a Patty Melt. The chef came over to our table again, asking me how I like it cooked, what kind of cheese, would I like sauteed onions. I must say, I have never seen a chef so interested in making sure his customers were happy. My husband ordered an Italian panini. The food was unbelievable! One of the best burgers I have ever had and believe me, I have had many a burger. The desserts were calling my name, but I did not have any room. I knew if I didn't take that Cannoli Cheesecake home, it would haunt me later so we took one to go. My teenage son saw it "dancing" in the fridge and commandeered it. I literally had to smack the fork out of his hand to have a bite. In his words, "This kicks Cheesecake Factory's ass". From the moment we walked into the cafe, it felt like "our place'. Warm, inviting, great food, amazing chef! What a place to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon. Can't wait to go back!

  • *****

    Broad menu with lots of choices for brunch hours. I had the chef's omelette which was cooked perfectly but I was eyeing the meatloaf sandwich at the table next to me. Good option.

  • *****

    Delicious food, great service. I cannot stress enough how good the pull pork sandwich was. Everything else is wonderful, it is consistent and amazing. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of the caf. If you had to pick one word to describe this place, it would be UNEXPECTED. In the middle of Main Street with average stores you walk into a friendly atmosphere and incredible dcor. I was there this past weekend with family and we will surely be going back. This caf is fantastic. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Stop in and say hi to Mike and Chef Andrew.

  • *****

    They are awesome. You may get welcomed at the door as we did. They wanted our business & they showed it. Our meals were excellent!!! Great atmosphere & experience!
    It will be a regular fav for us when in town with our son.

  • *****

    Exceptionally well done, unpretentious comfort food. The Demi-glac on the meatloaf was out of this world but the mashed potatoes were some of the best I have ever had. The blackened chicken and avacado wrap was perfectly prepared with juicy chicken and fresh avacado. The French fries with their own blend of spices were a tasty treat. Definitely recommended. Will be back.

  • *****

    My daughter and I went here for breakfast- our french toast was delicious and the coffee was hands down the best I have ever had at a restaurant! We left with a delicious assortment of baked goods too! The staff was so friendly. We can't wait to go back.

  • *****

    The wings were perfectly seasoned- the beef stew OMG like mom used to make only better- chunks of real carrots, potatoes perfectly cooked and the gravy just so heavenly over the tenderest of beef!
    All the entrees that were ordered by us were absolutely delicious!!
    And save room for the cheesecake!! So many different choices and each one absolutely melt in your mouth GOOD!

    Mike the server was quick and attentive and we never had to ask for anything with his keen sense to detail!!

    If you are out that way you have to stop in and enjoy the Menu that Chef Andrew has!!
