Vischer Ferry General Store, Rexford Eats

I know there weren’t too many freezing cold or snowy days this winter. I am happy for that fact. We did have a handful of days where it felt good to cozy up with a cup of hot cocoa, and one afternoon I did just that at Vischer Ferry General Store [357 Riverview Rd, Rexford, NY 12148]. I loved the drive there along the scenic byway, and we were sure ready to duck into a warm spot after a nice little nearby hike. My cozy started when I first set eyes on the place.

The food prepared, items stocked, decorations, and structure of the space were all flawless. I was only inside for a second, but loved this place already. Calming myself, I went to the counter and decided to order first. Looking into the counter I knew I had to get something sweet with my sandwich and cocoa.

Men can pick up their shaving materials, ladies can get a new lotion. Almost everything had a bird, fox, cat, or some woodsy animal on it. Special home goods such as candles or terrariums are available. There are all sorts of adorable trinkets and gift items.

We went home with a hedgehog onesie for a friend which was wrapped up nicely. Each item careful chosen, and you can bet the food is as thoughtful as the merchandise. Where to sit? There is a long large table and a couple of window seats, not too big inside, but roomy enough on an off hour.

I loved the firm texture that melts in your mouth, and it went seamlessly with the cocoa. What a lovely relaxing little lunch. Just when we thought we were finished, the chef came over with a little sample of banana bread.
