Red Hill Café Serves Up More Than Just Ice Cream in Rockland County NY

Arlene Paraico Rockland County

Is there anything more satisfying on a hot summer day than making a dash for a down-home ice-cream parlor? No, we’re not talking Baskin-Robbins or Cold Stone Creamery, but a real–deal roadside creamery, like the kind that pops up every season in those quaint summer vacation towns in Cape Cod or Maine. Bring back those delicious memories—and save a lot of gas, while you’re at it—by heading to Red Hill Café. Located in New City, NY, this family-run, county-style café and ice cream parlor might just be one of the cutest little restaurants around.

Red Hill serves an eclectic menu of breakfast and lunch dishes daily (think super-fresh salads, mile-high sandwiches, homemade empanadas, frothy coffee concoctions, pastries and more) in an ultra-casual atmosphere. Just order at the counter, take a seat (preferably one outside!) and they bring you your food. Which, by the way, is just as amazing as the nostalgic décor.

Even more amazing is their weekend-only brunch. Stop in Saturdays and Sundays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to sink your teeth into a RIDICULOUS array of brunch specials like French toast with caramelized bananas, waffles with fresh whipped cream and huevos rancheros—just a few of the tasty treats Red Hill does oh so right.


And don’t forget to grab a scoop or two on the way out!
