Garrison resident Pascal Graff, owner of Le Bouchon Brasserie in Cold Spring, has done it again.
The new Garrison Café opened two weeks ago, and, according to all reports, it’s a hit with the public.
The Café was designed by Graff and his friend Rick.
Walking through the door, the wood-burning oven takes over your sense of smell. Visually the café looks stunning, with rustic wood floors and Venetian plaster walls; it looks and feels like a typical European bistro, with indoor and outdoor café style seating.
Graff said, “The only color you should see when you walk in is the food.”
The bread, rolls, croissants, and other baked goods, as well as imported cheeses, are a feast for the eyes. The pizza is cooked in the wood-fired oven, and all pastries are made fresh on site by a pastry chef. Fresh coffee is served all day.
Graff said his aim is “to offer the public good, simple food at reasonable prices, we serve basic food, like burgers, pizza.”
The Café is a family affair, Graff’s own son works at the walk-up ice cream window.
The best thing as you check out the menu are the prices—you won’t go broke eating at the Garrison Café, as the prices are very reasonable. Hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the Garrison Café is located on Route 9D just north of St. Philip’s Church.
