What started as a father-son at home roasting business has turned into a local favorite coffee house that has been open now for four years.
Located right on Main Street of Patchogue, Roast offers the Long Island community a unique experience. Entering the coffee house, the aromas entice you, as the welcoming atmosphere draws you inside.
What sets this coffee house apart from all the others is the freshly roasted coffee beans, which are used within a week, that they roast right there on the premises. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting on one of the days they roast the beans, you can see firsthand how the process is done.
Their coffee is truly delicious, and apparently we aren’t the only ones who think so. For the past three years in a row, Roast has been voted Best Cup of Coffee and Best Long Island Coffee House by LI Press.
There is an array of coffee to choose from. With the delicious caramel latte, frozen mocha, and the Americano, it’s hard to make a decision on which one to try first! Tea is also offered, and they have 42 different ones that are available. Once you have your tasty beverage in hand, you can relax at a table or sink into one of the comfy couches.
Long Island Mamas had the opportunity to sit down with the general manager of Roast, and also a LI mom, Tiffany Rivera. Ms. Rivera has been at Roast since the beginning, and says now as a mom herself, she has a new perspective of the business world. Ms. Rivera and the owners believe that everyone should feel welcomed at Roast, and have made sure to include amenities for moms with little ones.
There are even mom groups (such as the Long Island Baby Wearing group) that meet at Roast, which Ms. Rivera says they are always looking for new mom groups to use their space for no fee…just enjoy a much needed cup of coffee or tea! The coffee house is also located across from the local library, which makes it very convenient for moms to grab a coffee or tea, before or after a program with their little one.
Whether you are looking for a moms night out, date night enjoying one of their events, or are looking for a place to meet up with other moms, Roast is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea!
What are you waiting for? Head on over to Roast and soon you will see why the locals have fallen in love with this coffee house.
