Yelp reviewers have plenty to say about the Blackboard Café in Wappingers Falls. Some have called it “phenomenal,” others say its dishes are “exceptionally well done,” and more than a few simply choose to use a few OMGs to describe their love for the eatery.
Having opened its doors in January, this full-service café does breakfast and lunch right, with a signature blackboard menu that lists specials like hot apple-glazed pancakes and a stuffed beer burger. Expect warm comfort food on a regular basis — stews, soups, wraps, pastas — and those sublime combination dishes, sunny-side up eggs with hash browns and the occasional pork chop.
The newbie touts itself as the “home of the Rainbow Cookie Cheesecake,” a popular treat that puts the Cheesecake Factory to shame. But all of their freshly baked goodies are equally delicious. Stop by on Fridays for Italian-themed cuisine, Saturday is set aside for American dishes, and Sundays feature a slew of family favorites.
Dine outside with one of the can’t-put-it-down pastries (the banana pudding cake is a favorite) or snag a table for a heftier meal. Did we mention there are occasional soul food specials? Bring on those St. Louis-style ribs!
