Iconic Toast Coffeehouse to Open in Patchogue
There’s excitement in the air as artists, art lovers, foodies, families with children and longtime residents of Patchogue await the grand opening of Toast Coffeehouse. The iconic restaurant has been drawing large crowds in Port Jefferson since it opened 13 years ago. Now a south shore version of Toast Coffeehouse is set to open and the locals are welcoming it with great anticipation.
“We love the healthy lunch options at Toast, and our daughter always raves about any new dishes she tries,” says Joe and Sue Glenn of Stony Brook. “We’re looking forward to the opening of their second restaurant in Patchogue, so we’ll have a new but familiar place to discuss business over lunch with our south shore clients.”
Known for its cozy, quaint and welcoming atmosphere and “artistic vibe,” Toast Coffeehouse consistently gets rave reviews online, in print and by word of mouth. The new restaurant will feature breakfast and lunch – including raspberry cheesecake pancakes, apple strudel French toast, savory omelets, salads and sandwiches every day until 3pm with a special menu coming out each month. Wine, craft beers, bloody marys and mimosas will be served as well.
The owner of Toast, Terry Scarlatos explains why he chose Patchogue to open a second Toast Coffee House. “We were looking to expand and Patchogue seemed like the perfect fit. It’s an eclectic village that strongly emphasizes the visual and performing arts.” Currently the hallway of the restaurant is being utilized as a Pop Up Gallery for an exhibit by artist Jeffrey Allen Price. Called “Rustography,” it is part of the local PAC MAC Festival organized by the Patchogue Arts Council. Price’s works will remain on exhibit until December 28. After that there will be will be semi-permanent art work by various artists on display throughout the restaurant.
The décor for the new Toast Coffeehouse is steam punk – a distinctively hip style created by mixing the old (19th Century) with the new (21st Century), fusing modern technology with the design aesthetic of the Victorian era. Steampunk utilizes brass and copper, wood, glass, mechanical workings and ornate engraving. Watch for the grand opening of Toast Coffee House….coming very soon!
