M and I took a day trip to Poughkeepsie, and of course we had to hit up a local diner while we were there.
We did a little internet research, and found a top rated place to check out.
The Palace Diner sure hit the bill on exterior decor!
The menu was extensive and hit the mark for both "diner-diner" food AND upscale diner food.
We were seated at a booth with a jukebox, and our awesome waitress had us sipping on coffees in no time. Truth be told, the coffee was a little bitter, but everything else more than made up for it.
M ordered his short stack with REAL maple syrup, and this little gem was delivered at his request.
I had my staple: two eggs over easy, ham, home fries, and rye toast. It was delicious.
M's short stack had a pat of butter and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
M's eggs benedict. He said this was good, but no where NEAR as good as the eggs benedict that he gets at Jack's in Albany.
I ordered a short stack of sweet potato pancakes. I can not tell you how delicious these are! It was like eating sweet potato pie in pancake form.
Eating at the Palace made me wish that it was close than 2 hours away. If you ever find yourself in the Hudson Valley, this is definitely a place worth checking out.
