This cafe is very homey & friendly. Partial self service & main course via server. Eggs & home fries were good. My friend said her pancakes were “so-so”! A bit pricey for breakfast, but we had a nice visit.

For a tiny village, Stone Ridge has a surprising number of amenities. And Lydia's is one of them. This modest restaurant turns out really tasty food. The crispy duck is wonderful; my wife really enjoyed the salmon. Portions are generous. But what earns this place...More

Four of us went for dinner on a Friday night. It's small, so I recommend reservations on Fridays or Saturdays (the only two dinner nights). Their decor is diner simple - nothing fancy or romantic about this place. That said, we were greeted and seated...More

This is an update on my prior review-- just had another delicious dinner at Lydia's. You really cannot beat the duck, which is out of this world. It's offered as a weekly special on Friday nights. If you like duck, as well as great home...More

Stopped for a quick bite and some drinks on a Saturday night. Small jazz combo with dynamic blonde female vocalist.must have been a top performer. Food and service were good. But I would eat dirt at twice the price to hear more.

We've been meaning to stop in to try dinner at Lydia's for a couple of years, having passed this establishment dozens of times- and we couldn't be happier with what we found when we finally did! The interior is country-cozy, rustic but comfortable. We felt...More

The food was good when it was still the Country Kitchen. Since it changed to Lydia's recently, it's not the same. The last time we ate there, both my wife and I got sick. I wouldn't go back.

We have been going to Lydia's for breakfast and lunch for a long time. The dinners we had last evening were top rate. I had the crispy duck, an amazing dish with many exotic and satisfying favors. My husband had the strip steak and Saint...More

I've been going to Lydia's for years. It's like eating in a dining room as opposed to a deli. Customers can choose their own coffee mug from a shelf full of different mugs. The food is cooked to order & delicious.
