North Fork Roasting Company opened their doors for business in February of this year, but by how well owners, friends Jennilee Morris and Jess Dunne, have settled into their beloved coffee shop, one would assume they have been in business for years. The rustic interior of this locally owned, small batch coffee shop is very comforting.
The space is perfect for settling into and relaxing the morning or afternoon away with a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Their cozy space makes you feel like you are walking into someone’s living room. There are touches of sentimental details in both sitting areas, with vintage cookbooks in a narrow bookcase and chinaware in glass shelves.
Standout menu items include their artisan coffee, dirty chai (chai tea with a shot of espresso) served iced or hot, steamed hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows, cold brewed coffee on tap that pourscomes out likes Guinness. Their loose leaf chai is from SerendipiTea in Manhasset. Katelyn, Dunne’s sister, bakes the cinnamon buns, raspberry lemon bread, and other baked goods sold in shop. “It is all about keeping it in the family,” says Dunne.
The service was tremendous. Owner/coffee-maker, Morris, was extremely polite, welcoming and accommodating. While I was taking photos and mingling with fellow customers, I noticed how she took the time to greet and spark conversation with each customer.
I look forward to visiting again and seeing how the business flourishes through the summer and coming years. This is a darling coffee shop that I eagerly await visiting soon. If I lived in town, you would find me here, writing on my laptop or reading one of my favorite historical novels, on a daily basis.
North Fork Roasting Co is open seven days a week, Monday thru Friday from 7am-4pm, and Saturday & Sunday from 7am-5pm. Soon, the coffee shop with have a garden on their front lawn with a fire pit, and there are plans for having live music. Each menu item is priced very reasonably.
