It seems that there is a "national ______ day" for just about everything these days. But, I figured what better day to share this cooking tidbit that I just found, than National Corn on the Cob Day.
Gypsy donut and espresso bar coming to Nyack
Dated: January 3 2012
Artisanal donuts! Fair trade excellent coffee! Believers in recycling, composting and taking care of our beloved planet! Community minded! Interested in contributions from the locals! Even organic milk! Sounds like a recipe for success in Nyack.
Being a foodie myself, I love anything that tastes great. My favorite donuts are Stan's from the San Jose, CA area (their buttermilk bars will make anyone understand the phrase too die for and a powdered donut from Victoria's Pastries in North Beach, San Francisco.

Sometime this Spring, Gypsy donut and espresso bar is going to open in Nyack --right in the old Gracie Ravioli's space and prior to that it was Donna Hudson's eaterie (my favorite salad for lunch-- oh so long ago -- and how I do wish I could have it for lunch again) --- on Franklin St a little north of Main St.

I've been living with my family in Rockland for over a decade and becoming a part of this wonderful community has enriched my life. I love to share Rockland's special secrets with people as they consi....
