Last winter after my I slipped on the black ice, I wanted to cheer myself up with a hearty cafe breakfast. My husband and I ended up strolling around Saugerties and going to Love Bites Cafe. It is a very sleek, but cozy cafe that serves excellent French brunch fare and eclectic breakfasts. I've eaten here a few times, and breakfast is always delicious. The hard part is making a selection. I settled on a Spinach & Goat Cheese omelet, and my husband had Eggs Your Way with bacon, French bread, and a frittata.
Another good bet is their Green Toast & Eggs. (Toast smeared with avocado & lime with eggs done your way). Coffee will really put hairs on your chest and is served with steamed milk.
