At Rock Hill, we care about food. Like, we REALLY care. We are extremely selective with our ingredients, sourcing them locally whenever possible and fine tuning our recipes and process until they are perfect.
Bread is a staple. Bread is essential. Bread is nourishing. And real bread is often more expensive than typical white pan breads because it is real food made by real people with real ingredients. Our bread is produced by humans rather than machines, and baked in and out of our hearth ovens by hand.
Rock Hill Cafe
Our sandwiches are made on our own bread, of course. Pictured is our Granny Smith sandwich, made on naturally-leavened Cinnamon Raisin bread, slathered with our own curried vegan mayo, topped with fresh Granny Smith apple slices and Berben & Wolff’s amazing seitan and vegan cheese.
Our salads are made with organic produce, assembled to order. Pictured is The Big Garden, with Rock Hill croutons and our own Balsamic vinaigrette. This one was made with our baked seasoned tofu pieces and roasted garlic.
Did you know that our menu is 100% vegan? These incredible plant-based Seitan wings from Berben & Wolff are drizzled with our very own Buffalo sauce and served with organic celery and carrot sticks and vegan bleu cheese. The meal includes a cold beverage and Saratoga chips.

What we stand for
Rock Hill Bakehouse began in 1989 with Michael and Wendy London (of “Mrs. London’s Bakeshop” fame) baking bread from their Greenwich farmhouse and delivering the bread to a handful of restaurants in Manhattan. It was taken over by partner, Matt Funiciello, in 1991. We have now been baking real breads for over 30 years. Rock Hill has been included in bread books by the likes of James Beard, Bernard Clayton, and Julia Child. Locally, we are known for political activism and community involvement. Matt has long been committed to the establishment of a community-based socially-conscious business model. Here is what we stand for.
- Living Wages
- Plant-Based Foods
- Supporting Community Arts/Activism
- Supporting Local Farmers/Producers
- Healthy Affordable High Quality Food
“Best Jewish Rye”
But the very best local example of this fragrant rye
is made by the artisanal Rock Hill Bakehouse in
Glens Falls, N.Y., and sold at the Union Square Greenmarket on Saturdays. Chewy and yeasty, with
a convincingly tan sourdough color, this bread
has a firm, tight crumb and plenty of caraway.

“I Love Rock Hill”
During my 5 day visit to ADK I ate here three times.
I loved everything i had. The tofu breakfast bowl
on Sunday while listening to the piano playing was fantastic and a nice surprise. I tried 4 different pizzas. They were all fantastic. My favorite was the tomato
and my husband loved the buffalo. The Bison
sandwich was super yummy and the cookies
are delicious. Food is made with love.
