Share

Local eateries tempt the taste buds with good-for-you twists on burgers, burritos, and mac and cheese.

Fogwood and Fig

Opened by a vegan food blogger, Fogwood and Fig is a cozy little café on Front Street in Port Jervis serving deliciously healthy fare. Their vegan menu comprises an assortment of dishes sure to help you adhere to the DASH diet’s methodology. The Fogwood Smoky Burger combines melty cashew cheese with a smoky coconut crisp, black lentil mushroom patty, a slew of veggies, and topped with chipotle lime mayo and a house pickle. Other options riff on popular sandwiches like the Levi Reuben and the Anytime Breakfast Sandwich. Lighter items like mac and cheese, salads, grain bowls, and seasonal soups fill out the rest of the menu, and it’s also worth noting that there are plenty of gluten-free options available.

The Green Bowl

A relative newcomer to Wappingers Falls, The Green Bowl is a great spot for when every member of your family has a different dietary restriction. Not everything on the menu qualifies as good for your ticker, like arepas with roasted pork, ham, and mozzarella, or yuca fries — although someone at the table would do well to order them. As for heart-healthy options, The Green Bowl has vegetarian arepas, plus a number of fresh, leafy salads like Asian ginger, the Berry Grand, or a classic Caesar. There’s also a healthy selection of juices, smoothies, or breakfast offerings like avocado toast, açai bowls, or parfaits.
Wappingers Falls — 1485 Route 9D, 845.838.8909

The Rosendale Café

A longtime favorite for its food and live music scene, The Rosendale Café has been serving vegetarian fare to carnivores and vegans alike. Modestly priced with lots of organic, local ingredients, the menu here consists of salads, sandwiches, and entrees like mushroom stroganoff, spinach goat cheese burritos, and the Zen Platter — a hefty serving of veggies, grains, and tofu with a delectable dipping sauce. Appetizers are nothing to miss out on either, with favorites like cold spicy peanut noodles and nachos. The entertainment varies by night, but on Wednesdays, you can pack up the chess board and hang out for the evening — and, of course, eat some great food.
Rosendale — 434 Main St, 845.658.9048
