134 Southside Ave
Located inside the Hastings-on-Hudson train station depot, this café/coffeehouse with a homey “living room” atmosphere attracts the area’s flourishing community of writers and other creative folks. There’s a bookcase filled with books brought in by customers, WiFi, local art on the walls, and laptop-friendly tables (each has an outlet).
Wraps, sandwiches, and salads complement Barrington-brand coffees, plus there’s gelato, sorbet, and an assortment of pastries such as muffins, scones, croissants, and ruggelach for dessert.
The café is a popular meeting place for local social groups, like the Rivertowns Networkers, an organization of freelancers and creative professionals. The café also hosts poetry readings and musical performances by local musicians. Open Mon to Fri 6am-6pm and Sat 8am-2pm.
