Occupying the space that was formerly the Golden Pear Cafe in Stony Brook, Crazy Beans is now open for business. The original location, in Miller Place, is still running strong and they’ve been pumping up the new Stony Brook location on Facebook and through social media outreach. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner this is a great day for Stony Brook and for the Long Island early morning food scene. Make sure to stop in and try their coffee, which customers continually rave about.
When Relish opened roughly two years ago in Kings Park, on Suffolk County’s north shore, owner / chef Stephen Cardello (formerly the chef at Grey Horse Tavern in Bayport) probably couldn’t have imagined its success and popularity with local foodies. Their weekend breakfast has been creating plenty of buzz in local circles and helping their cause is their location; on the corner of Main Street and also close to many of their suppliers. This has led to creative, fresh and seasonal fare.
Cipollini Pronto may be the sister-restaurant to Cipollini, located just next door (they even share a kitchen), but to those looking for a quick coffee or a bite to eat while shopping, this is the perfect spot to relax, refuel and get on with your day.

We’ve hit up a few of our favorites to show our readers what lies in waiting for you once you make the trip out.

We’ve scoured the area and came up with a few great dining options for our readers to visit and experience for a wonderful dining day in Suffolk County.
Every town on Long Island should have a coffee spot / cafe like Brownstones. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cup of expertly made coffee (or tea) and to indulge in some tasty breakfast foods as well. It’s a smaller cafe, so if you’re planning on staying for food on the weekends, be prepared for a short wait while the tables turn over; but it’s oh-so-worth-it.
