Cinnamon puffs at House Rules Café

Comfort food and cocktails in a converted grocery store? Count us in. A & P Bar is a stylish yet comfortable spot where you can sip artisanal concoctions crafted from house-made syrups, bitters, and shrubs, and enjoy artfully prepared bites (like grilled cauliflower with parsley and kalamata olives) and desserts (like the Sticky Toffee Pudding with orange sorbet). 83 Mill Hill Rd, Woodstock; 845.684.5395

We’re all over the baked goods at Outsiders Kitchen + Café, a roadside breakfast and lunch spot where Funny Cake (cake in a pie shell with a chocolatey bottom), croissants, and bacon date scones turn us into morning people. 45278 State Hwy 30, Margaretville; 845.586.6330

Toast autumn as you sample wines from more than 150 vintners at the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Festival, along with craft beer, spirits, and hard ciders. Cheeses, salsas, baked goods, and food trucks will keep you well fed. Sept. 9-10. Dutchess County Fairgrounds 6550 Spring Brook Ave [Rt 9], Rhinebeck; 845.658.7181
