Beacon Falls Cafe, 472 Main St., Beacon, (845) 765-0172

Why Go: The café, which has been in a cozy storefront for about eight years, claims to be the first eatery in artsy downtown Beacon to have done brunch. It's located near the Howland cultural center, antique shops, Mount Beacon, and the Dia Beacon art museum. So load up on bacon and waffles, then burn off the calories wandering around town.

Worth Waking Up For : Among its creative brunch offerings are a breakfast risotto, a northern Italian rice dish cooked to a creamy consistency. Beacon’s version contains sausage, onions and peas and is topped with two eggs. Among other customer favs are the chorizo and asiago frittata, ridiculously fluffy pancakes, and cannoli and Bananas Foster French toasts. The café doesn’t have a license to serve the hard stuff, but it still can whomp up refreshing pitchers of Bloody Mary's and mimosas using wine-based liquors, says owner Bob Neveleus.

When: Sundays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Prix Fixe? No. Menu items are priced individually.
