I had the loveliest time roaming about the Catskills yesterday.
First stop was for breakfast at Sweet Sue’s in Phoenicia, and wow, what a treat. This place is known for their pancakes and they have many eclectic options to choose from.
I think this may have been the most epically delicious breakfast I have ever feasted upon. Jeff got banana bread challah French toast and a side of bacon. It was absurdly delicious.
I got Hawaiian pancakes which had coconut and pineapple and they were truly divine. I mean, just look at them all fluffy like clouds of deliciousness.
After a ridiculously gluttonous breakfast it was time for a hike! We decided to do Giant Ledge, a 3.1 (or more depending on how far you go) trail of Panther Mountain. The hike was really great. The ascent is mostly gradual with a few steep inclines, and very rocky almost the whole way through. It was fun bouncing from rock to rock like a mountain goat.
Once you get to the ledge area you are rewarded with a gorgeous view of the Catskills.
We stopped in Woodstock to attend the Mower’s Weekend Market.
A light dinner was in order after much running around. Jeff remembered really digging pizza last summer when we visited Woodstock, and was hoping to relive the dream. We found the spot, a unique little operation completely outside amongst the hustle bustle of the town. The Green Palate Vege-Terranean Grill has some undeniably good food, and super friendly owners. We enjoyed talking to Giovanni who whipped us up some mean fire-grilled pizzas. Jeff got a meatball pie and I got a margherita, and we had some mango lemonade and sweet delectable corn.
We heard the veggie burgers are award winning, and plan on trying them out next time. A simply perfect end to a wonderful day in the sunshine on a sidewalk in Woodstock.
