The Hudson Valley has so many cozy coffee shops and cafes to visit. I enjoy visiting the local spots and embracing all that they have to offer.

Some have a relaxing space, others provide a soothing ambiance and a unique drink menu. It seems that each town has a spot that Hudson Valley residents enjoy going to.

All of the coffee shops and cafes are different and that's what I love most about the variety within the Hudson Valley. For me, going to a local coffee shop can truly start my day off in a positive way.
