I'll miss going there to buy $1.50 semi cold cans of coke (when in stock).

I agree the business could be successful. One thing I would love to see there would be smoothies and fresh juices. I think having picnic snack packs premade and available to be custom made, prepaid and ready for pick up would be a smart idea during

That's three posters above who complained about the place. Yet RangerRob noted too long lines there. It doesn't take a brilliant mind to conclude that a well run place could be quite successful.

Been climbing in the Gunks for nearly 20 years and went into the deli 3 or 4 times at most. Everything was always overpriced, not very good and service was very slow.

+1 for the deli sucking balls - $3 for a peanut-butter bagel served by some snotty kid that took 20 minutes? Same price gets me a fatty egg sandwich from the convenient deli, plus coffee, served by the friendly and honest folks - left my wallet there

Actually he got marooned when the gates at Minnewaska closed and his car was still in the parking lot. So he hiked down to the deli only to find it was closed. When he finally made it to the Mohonk House, he had to improvise a tie so they'd let him i

They filmed his regular season commercial there also. They just filmed commercials though, he answered on facebook when the initial commercial was released that it was only for a commercial and that no episodes were filmed there.

Has The Last Bite been working on a deal? They would be a great new proprietor, though of course High Falls would be sadder for their absence(assuming they would close that location).

Russo's in np is the bomb imo. I really hope the last bite gets the mountain bistro location. fingers crossed.

Same person who went into the Visitor Center a few years ago and started threatening to shoot the director. He was arrested for menacing I believe. Crazy Mike could often be seen riding his moped between the deli and New Paltz.

That deli sucked balls for a number of years. I stopped going there somewhere around 2005 or 2006. Lines too long, service sucked, food too expensive, and not a good selection. And to clarify a point...it is NOT in New Paltz. It's in Gardiner. C

I heard some talk of what was obviously this incident while I was having my van worked on today. (Just knew "something had happened" that involved police and the area of 44/55 between Guilford Schoolhouse and the Hairpin.) Wow - I am so gl

Looks like "Survivorman And Son" will be filing a trip report in the form of a TV show (Fri night on Science Channel) where it looks like they'll have an epic survival outing in ............. Minnewaska State Park! Minne Epic It loo

Yeah, proximity. I like the Chelsea motel in Kerhonksen, and it's a long way to go all the way back to NP for stuff. I'm sure it'll be back open soon enough.

Sounds like the bush anchor on Footloose (5.8 corner two routes right of Wegetables) is getting worse.

A loooong time ago, I lived in this house (he lived in the basement) and he's honestly the most unstable person I had ever met... logically, we didn't stay there long. Thankfully, nobody got hurt!

No matter how good the restaurant/takeout places are in New Paltz and Gardiner, they are no substitute for the proximity of that deli.

Again? Well, Jack's Deli in New Paltz makes decent sandwiches. It is on the right a few doors down from Mexicali Blue if coming from the Thruway. He also sells local grassfed beef and other meats.
