NYACK, N.Y. -- It’s hard to resist the summertime combo of sipping and noshing outdoors. All you need is some sun (or shade) and your choice of a secluded patio, sidewalk seating, or a rooftop deck -- and someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and serving.

Why It's Outdoor Worthy: The Art Cafe was conceived 11 years ago when Owner Daniel Kramer and his mother came to the realization that something was missing from the coffee experience in Nyack. In Kramer’s words, Art Cafe is a great place to casually meet and have a conversation with someone.
Add to that a lush setting just outside the eatery's front door complete with big, red umbrellas.“In Nyack, we’re the only ones with a true garden-type experience where you can feel like you’re not just in an outdoor patio that's part of a restaurant. It feels like you’re sitting in a garden outside of a home,” he said.
The cafe also offers a series of ice cold drinks including a New Orleans cold brewed iced coffee, a Japanese iced coffee, and a plethora of "eclectic" cold beers, Prosecco and wines to sip on.
