Seven days a week, Babylon Bean Coffee House is open for your pleasure. If your pleasure is sitting and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee in an inviting atmosphere (with free wifi) or listening to live music on the weekend nights, this local spot is just for you.
The Post Office Cafe sits on historic West Main Street in Babylon just waiting for you to come in. It’s a building steeped in history; originally used as a post office and now a well known eatery and bar that is most popular after work and on the weekends. The Lessing family has poured their hearts and souls into this establishment and it’s only getting more popular through the years.
Chef Brian Fugit is now at the helm of Horace & Sylvia’s in Babylon, an establishment that boasts a wonderful bar scene and great food as well. With 18 beers on tap (and local offerings such as Blue Point, etc.) they’ve recently been delving into a once per month “Beer Dinner” to pair up some cuisine with tasty brew.
Although a nationally recognized franchise, Kilwins in Babylon is the only one of its kind in the area, so for our purposes, we’ll consider it to be a local product worthy of an overview. Specializing in all things sweet; fudge, ice cream, candy, etc., this is our Suffolk County go-to spot when that sweet tooth is yearning for something, well, sweet.
If we were asked what restaurant on Long Island closely resembled any cool restaurant in Brooklyn, we’d point them towards Barrique Kitchen and Wine Bar in the heart of Babylon Village. Rustic, with its bare wood beams on the ceiling, exposed brick and the familiar aged wood all around, Barrique opened in 2009 (by the same owners as the Argyle Grill & Tavern across the street) and has been a favorite spot on the south shore since.
If you’re looking for a creative meal on Sunday, June 10th between 1:00 and 5:00pm, we might have just found the perfect spot for you. Restaurant Gemelli in Babylon will be hosting an unique Five Course Wine and Food Meal.
We’ll have more information on the cuisine and experience at Monsoon in Babylon Village, the newest of the Bohlsen Restaurant Group’s six restaurants on Long Island soon, but to tide you over we’ve visited their new location to see what this new hot spot looks like on the inside.
