POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Coffee rules. Especially at 7 am on a Monday. Or 9 a.m on a weekend you’re your morning cuppa soothes the soul.
Who Brews The Best Coffee In Dutchess?
Bank Square Coffeehouse, Beacon
Blackboard Cafe, Wappingers Falls
The Ugly Mug, Poughkeepsie
We asked for your favorites; three are now in the running in our DVlicious contest for the best coffeehouse in Dutchess. Each has been profiled this week. Let your fingers do the clicking while you sip, savor – and vote.
Voting ends at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27. You are allowed to vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
What Makes It "Strong": The recently opened cafe, owned by a local councilman in Fishkill, prides itself on sourcing everything as local as possible. Coffee is roasted in Pine Plains and Ugly Mug Manager Breanna Keeler likes to say the coffee doesn't have "frequent flier miles."
"We keep our neighbors working," she said. "Our dairies, our tea provider, our bakers, our coffee roasters, our farmers all benefit from us being open."
Pastries and other goodies are also on the menu.
