New Café on Mahopac Bike Trail Serves Healthy Local Fare

Inside the Freight House Cafe in Mahopac, NY

The Freight House Café is a quaint, cozy, historical café that recently opened in downtown Mahopac. Most items on the menu are natural and organic, with ingredients from Hudson Valley region farms. The kitchen is open daily from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., and coffee and baked goods are served until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The menu includes sandwiches, wraps, homemade hummus, veggie cream cheese, salads, baked goods, coffees, espressos, smoothies and juices.

The building for which the café is named was constructed in 1872—the first freight house built for the Old Put railroad line. After the railroad closed in the 1960’s, the building was used for storage. It sits on the Buckshollow part of the Putnam Trailway bike trail and shares a parking lot with Salon Uccelli and Putnam Music Center on Route 6. Bikers and others are encouraged to stop by to enjoy this historic spot, eat delicious homemade food, sit out on the beautiful deck and sip coffee while listening to the locals play music.

The Freight House Café is located at 609 Route 6 in Mahopac, NY. For more information, call 845.628.1872 or visit
