Artisan Kaiser celebrates its grand opening in The Shoppes at New Village


During the overnight hours in New Village, you’ll still find Artisan Kaiser all aglow, even if it’s 4 a.m.

That’s because bakers get started at around 11 p.m., seven days, and work through the mornings.

You can taste the different when you experience the layers of flavor within a hand-tied kaiser roll — which is the way people made them a century ago, before the kaiser stamp.

“The food is fantastic,” said Tiffany Rivera, the longtime manager of Roast Coffee & Tea Trading Co. in Patchogue who’s now the front-of-the-house manager at Artisan Kaiser. “Nobody makes kaiser rolls the way they make kaiser rolls here. And I can’t stop eating them.”

“When I first walked in here I thought it was absolutely gorgeous,” Rivera also said.

Artisan Kaiser is owned by Frank Dalba of Centereach, Paul Hess of Shirley and Donna Mangold of Commack. Frank Dalba Sr. can be found working most days at the sandwich shop, which opened Labor Day weekend at 16 Havens Avenue near the Village Green.

The owners, their families, locally elected leaders and representatives from the Shoppes at New Village were all on hand Monday to celebrate Artisan Kaiser’s grand opening with a ribbon cutting.

Patchogue Mayor Paul Pontieri joked that this was just what what this food-centric village needed, “more food,” but went on to say Kaiser Roll really does fill a void, as there’s nothing like it on Main Street.

“It’s a classy place, it’s a great place and the food is excellent,” Pontieri said.

The owners say their food has been well received. And the place is typically buzzing in the morning hours as the residents of the 291-unit New Village apartment complex are getting their days started.

The best sellers so far are the Kaiser Steak Melt (roast beef, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, choice of may) and the Healthy Italian (roasted tomato, roasted red pepper, spinach, mozzarella, basil mayo). Click here for the full menu.

“There’s no place like this in Patchogue, so it’s wonderful to be a part of this with all these guys,” said Mangold, who had previously worked with Frank Jr. at a baking company.
