Main street eats


 Whenever I set out for a visit to New Paltz, my thoughts are on food and color. One of the tastiest, and most colorful, eateries in the town is Karma Road on Main Street. This vegetarian restaurant, owned by a couple with extensive healthy large-scale kitchen experience, serves smoothies, juices, sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts. There's a deli case with to-go or eat-in options and their menu is HUGE and you can find it on their website. The place has outdoor seating and music that fits the vibe.


Herbal tea, I forget what kind. Karma has an awesome Moroccan mint iced tea, too.


I had the Avocado Explosion sandwich (avocado mash, local sprouts, carrots, and tahini dressing) with a side of veggie slaw. The sandwich was great, but a nice surprise was the slaw. I've never been a slaw person and if the stuff ends up on my plate it usually stays there. Not this time, maybe they use a vegetarian mayonnaise and that's the difference?


Below original art on the walls, dining tables display images from the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in nearby Willow, New York, of which the owners are supporters. The restaurant's wall of windows and high ceilings make this place a light-filled experience. Karma Road is open daily 8am-8pm (but closing at 6pm on Sundays) leaving you lots of time to work through the menu.
