East Islip’s Milano Bean Café is opening its next location in Bay Shore


Java lovers, there’s a new coffee spot coming to downtown Bay Shore.

Milano Bean Café is taking over the old Salon Eden space at 6 East Main Street, the owners announced.

Owner Tiger Schofield opened his first storefront at 51 West Main Street in East Islip in 2020 and over the past two years has become known as a friendly, neighborhood coffee shop.

Some frequent customers compared the atmosphere of the café to the sitcom “Cheers.”

“We don’t treat you as business, or for money, we treat you like a real family,” said owner Schofield, who spoke to back in 2020.

Schofield, who is originally from Jordan but now lives in East Islip, said he came up with the café’s name after frequently visiting Milan in Italy. 

He said countries like Jordan and Egypt have cafés with similar names as well. 

Milano Bean Café’s menu features classic espresso drinks, such as macchiatos, cappuccinos, and mochas, but they also have fresh baked goods and make crepes in-house. Click below to see our past coverage.
