Coming Soon: Red Mango Frozen Yogurt in Manhasset and Merrick

As we learned from Long Island Business News today, Red Mango, the increasingly visible frozen yogurt stores popping up everywhere from NYC to Long Island is opening another store in Manhasset on Plandome Rd. (not far form the train station). The franchisee who will be opening this new outpost also has another located in the Wheatley Plaza shopping center in Greenvale.

Serious Chocolate in Bay Shore

Serious Chocolate in Bay Shore

Serious chocolate is a great little shop located on West Main Street in Bay Shore. A small area of the island that is littered with great restaurants and shops, Bay Shore is coming of age and proving to be a go-to destination for those with a need for good cuisine. The same can be said about Serious Chocolates and the various chocolatey (and sweet) goods that reside within.

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Steves_1By Sam Jacobs, Brooklyn Correspondent

If you love Key Lime Pie…no, if you adore Key Lime Pie…no, that’s no good either.  Ok, if you think you’ve eaten the best Key Lime Pie, but you’ve never been to Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies in Red Hook, then you have never tasted it the way it should be.  Steve’s pies put all other pie to shame (and my mom makes some pretty good pie).

They are not cheap ($25 for a 10", $15 for an 8", $4 for a mini tart,) but they are the perfect blend of sweet and tart.  Eat a mini tart, chocolate covered frozen bar, or a glass of Key Limeade while sitting on the newly revamped patio area overlooking the Hudson, or bring a 10" to a dinner party.  You’ll be the most popular guest!

And while you’re there say hi to Steve’s Jack Russell Terrier, Mango who is usually holding down the fort.


Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton

By Sam Jacobs, Brooklyn Correspondent

There are few times in a man’s life when he can safely say, without a doubt that’s he’s just eaten the most fantastic, tasty, delicious baked goods in his life.  If I get three, I’m going to use one right now.

This past weekend I visited Tate’s (formerly known as Kathleen’s) in Southampton for the first time.  It was Saturday morning.  The line was almost out the door, but it moved quickly.  I chose a blueberry muffin for breakfast along with a piping hot cup of hazelnut coffee.  It was perfection in the form of a muffin.  I also purchased two pies to bring to a BBQ – one strawberry-rhubarb, and one key lime.  Once dessert was served, the pies disappeared within minutes.

Tate’s also sells a variety of cookies, dips, sauces, jellies, jams, and preserves, bread, croissants, and bagels.  It’s worth the 2 hour drive from Brooklyn.
