Hey Y'all, it's your favorite guide to the Hudson Valley and Catskills, Maxwell Alexander, and I'm back with another restaurant review! As a travel lifestyle photographer, I'm always on the hunt for the most epic eats in town. And during my recent stay at the sick mountain cabin by Alluvion Vacations in Catskill, NY, I got to check out the town's buzzing food scene. On one beautiful and sunny morning, I woke up a bit hangover from all the Prosecco I had to shoot (then drink) at the previous nite's lifestyle photoshoot. My mission to find a banging breakfast led me to Goodies Bagels, a local gem that totally captured the vibe of this cute little village.
Chowing Down in Catskill, NY: My Search for the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich – Goodies – Restaurant Reviews with Photographer Maxwell Alexander – Presented by Alluvion Vacations
Right in the heart of Catskill, Goodies is the spot to be for both locals and out-of-towners who want tasty, affordable eats. They've got an awesome selection of bagels, including classic flavors like poppy and sesame, as well as wild combos like egg everything.
I was looking at the menu and as a gay cowboy, I couldn't resist ordering the Brokeback Bagel, with eggs, grass-raised sausage, and cheese on an everything bagel. Let me tell ya, it was the best breakfast sandwich I've had in ages! And when I paired it with a hot cup of coffee, it was the perfect way to fuel up for a day of happy gay travel adventures in the mountains.
But Goodies is more than just a sick place to grab a bite. According to their (pretty awesome) website, it's also a celebration of Catskill's rich history, diverse culture, and hardworking peeps. From former President Martin Van Buren to boxing legend Mike Tyson, Catskill's got a ton of stories to tell. And with galleries like Foreland and Thomas Cole, the town's got a thriving arts scene, too. Goodie's Bagels is the bomb, and it's just one example of everything that makes Catskill such a rad place to visit.
With its warm vibes, delish food, and commitment to the community, Goodies Bagels is a must-see spot. Whether you're a local or a tourist, Goodies is the perfect place to get fueled up for a day of exploring. So if you're in the area, you gotta swing by and experience the magic of Catskill for yourself!
