Ice Cream Floats!!

Verb Or Noun?

It’s both! Carmen’s is now making Ice Cream Floats with Battenkill Creamery’s delicious Vanilla Ice Cream and our own homemade, fruit-based, sugar-free sodas!!

Try one with Lime Creme (my favorite) or Limonada (Paula’s preference) or the double-brewed, 100% premium Colombian Coffee. Cocoa nibs optional.

At the Farmer’s Market or at the Café

South Troy Movies Tonight!

Tonight at 8:30: Friends of the Gasholder is screening Cool Runnings, the story of the first Jamaican Olympic bobsled team. By turns funny and compelling, this 1993 film was a hit when it opened, telling the story of those plucky lads who wanted to go to the Olympics, even though Caribbean islands are not generally known for their bobsledding.

Friends of the Gasholder is running these movies on the second Saturday this summer, in order to raise awareness of the unique architectural beauty and engineering whizbang of this fantastic venue. Seen it yet? If not, it’s worth going just for that. Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway Director Michael Barrett will speak briefly about the Gasholder before the film, which will be held inside to be safe from any weather events that might occur. Limited seats are provided, it’s best to bring a lawn chair or blanket.

And what else could draw you to this magnificent event? Carmen’s donated Lime Créme, to be sold to benefit the Friends of the Gasholder. If you haven’t tried it at the Café or the Farmer’s Market yet, you are in for a treat. Best yet, it blends well with most spirits— our favorite is the Green Caribbean, made with champagne and a dash of Orange Cognac. It also makes dandy floats with Vanilla Ice Cream, hint hint.

Yes, we’re open today.

Whether it’s a relaxing Mimosa, a full breakfast
or lunch, we’re here for you until 4pm.

Happy Father’s Day

Special for dads— or anyone else who is hungry!

Meatloaf with garlicky-scallion mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. We usually serve it with a couple eggs as well, but I just wasn’t that hungry this morning.

Must’ve been all the blueberry pancakes I just finished.

Mothers Day Shrimp

No, we don’t mean your smarmy little brother. We’re talking about the special – jumbo shrimp, scallops, grilled vegetables and piccalilli on basmati brown rice.

And the flavors combine! Juicy and succulent, the perfect brunch.

Chorizo Hash Omelet

Chorizo hash omelet, and its complement, the vegan hash omelet.

Both have mushrooms, onion, cheddar and roasted red peppers.


Apple Ham Omelet

Apple & ham sautéed to sweetness, topped with tangy cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.

It’s in bloom

Great day for dining alfresco – give it about an hour to sun the chill off the morning

Minnie Pancakes

We love to delight!

And with plenty of fresh fruit, it’s a meal that stays with her.

Easter Scallop Special

Scallops with roasted fresh vegetables, and corn pico, served on wild rice.

At Carmen’s, it’s all cooked fresh to order. Sometimes it takes a little longer, but the results are worth it!
