    I think there was a change of ownership of the on field restaurant and perhaps even the field and that they were gutting and redoing it. Does anyone know if the restaurant at Sky Acres is open?

    Want to go there tomorrow morning? I am meeting another member for a flight and we could stop by. Maybe not long enough for a meal, but long enough to stop. We are both young and time (both actual time and logging hours) is more important than breakfast.

    That would be fun, but my brother is visiting this weekend. Maybe another time.

    I went to the Sky Acres restaurant for breakfast today for the first time. My previous trip had been for lunch. It was about 80-90% full from 10:30-11:00 while I was there, but no waiting line. The food was good. Bacon strips were the thick but still crispy. French toast was made from thick slices of bread (not Texas toast thick, though) and had good egg flavor.

    The breakfast menu was not as ambitious as the lunch menu, though. Similar to items that can be ordered at most airport cafes. Omelets, eggs, pancakes, french toast, Belgian waffles, biscuits and gravy, corn beef hash, etc.

    I miss the departed Culinary Creations from Orange County NY airport.

    The owner of culinary creations opened a new place in town. 10 min Uber ride. It’s just as good!

    Thanks for the heeds-up. Under what name? I'm not seeing a Culinary Creations near KMGJ or in Montgomery NY.

    I learned to fly out of 44N in 1988 and the restaurant was always a treat. So glad to hear it is still operating.
