The North Fork has a lot of things. It has Greenport, Riverhead and Southold. Each of those locations have an abundant supply of restaurants and shops for visitors and residents to bask in. What they don’t have however is a selection of worthy coffee roasters to enjoy some freshly roasted beans any day of the weak. North Fork Roasting Co. in Southold will be opening soon to change that very fact.

The east end is recovering from the crazy summer activity that revs up the weekend and nightlife activity.
