Troy, which seems to welcome a new dining spot every other week, has just gotten yet another. This one is called Psychedelicatessan, a breakfast and lunch spot that owner founded as a recreation of a business of the same name and style that she owned in Idaho.

The difference in the Capital Region is that the Idaho original started out in a basement then moved into a converted school bus. The Troy version is starting inside bricks-and-mortar just up from Monument Square in the newly-renovated Dauchey Building at 275 River Street, and area that is part of the city's burgeoning rehabbing movement.

Lerrone's menu at her just-opened cafe offers bagel sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit smoothies, coffee and tea. Her bagels are made on-premises from a scratch recipe now being used by the third generation of her family but in a wide variety of flavors including bacon, cheddar, jalapeño cheddar, sun dried tomato, spinach Parmesan and cinnamon toast.

Like so many of the new wave local restaurants, Lerrone's mantra is no-GMO products, source locally and make from scratch. Psychedelicatessan's hours are 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends. Phone: (518) 478-3459.
