Irving Farm Coffee House in Millerton

Some may recognize the name Irving Farm from the seven locations throughout New York City, but in fact, Irving Farm is locally roasted right here in Millerton! Visit the Coffee House for your caffeine fix, serving an array of sustainably sourced coffees brewed hot or cold, fine espresso drinks and whole beans for purchase so you can continue to enjoy the brew at home. The café also offers breakfast and lunch daily, and a variety of pastries and treats from their in-house baker.
