Taste Budds a Red Hook Gem

 Taste Budds

Taste Budds a chocolate and coffee cafe was opened in the village of Red Hook by Dan Budd.  The first time I saw Chef Budd was at a wine tasting event where he gave an awesome baking demonstration.

This is no ordinary coffee house, here you can get all types of coffee and espresso drinks, sandwiches and most of all, all kinds of chocolate desserts - and now fresh fudge.  Because Chef Budd is a trained chef from the Culinary Institute of America, once you have had his desserts you will come back for more.

The atmosphere is welcoming so it is not unusual for people to meet there for a business lunch.  It is also a popular meeting place with students and professors from nearby Bard College. Since Internet service is also available it is not uncommon to see people working on their computers while sipping coffee.

So if you are ever passing through Red Hook this is a great place to get your favorite coffee beverage, or a chocolate dessert.

It is also possible to get a gift basket on location or you can purchase the delicious desserts on-line.

Chef Budd's fantastic desserts are also available at the Dutchess County Fair and other events served by his catering business as well as at fine hudson valley restaurants.
