Sip Your Coffee Outside
Nothing beats the smell of fresh, roasted coffee. On the North Fork we’re lucky enough to have some cool spots where people gather over hot brews, choosing to sip and linger rather than gulp and dash. In a cozy sweater (because yes, that time is coming), there are a few places you must check out all year long.
North Fork Roasting Company in Southold touts coffee so fresh you can smack it, the small batch artisanal coffee roasters offer a variety of coffee, honoring each bean’s unique characteristics. They often have live music on the weekends were coffee (and tea) can be enjoyed outside on the lawn. Check out their food menu with local ingredients.
If you’ve ever walked the street of Greenport in the morning, you’ve undoubtedly smelled the beans roasting at Aldo’s. The European-style café has been offering up roasted coffee and baking biscotti and scones since 1987. You can take latte outside on the back patio, or sit by the water at the neighboring Mitchell Park.
