Exploring the ADK High Peaks Region

When I got back to the Jeep, I put my gear away, and made coffee by the roadside. I set up my camp table and chair, and sat there for about an hour, sipping at my mug, while watching vehicles pass, and hikers filter in.

“There would be no hiking today,” I decided.

I set off in the Jeep to explore some backroads, partly for fun, and partly to find some good places to setup the rooftop tent for the coming evening. By midday, I had found a few good candidates, and then I was off to lunch.

For lunch, I opted to stop at The ADK Cafe in Keene, New York. The reviews that I found online spoke favorably of the establishment. It offers cafe-made meals using locally-sourced ingredients, and it seemed like my type of place.

When I arrived, it was fairly busy, and I was seated on the deck after a short wait.

I tried to order a burger, which I was really looking forward to, but unfortunately, they were out of ground beef. Instead, I ordered a grilled cheese with fries, which was also very substantial and very well-made.

While the food was superb, the staff seemed awkward and slow. This wouldn’t stop me from strongly recommending the restaurant, however. I look forward to returning someday, for my burger.
