Getting tired of the tall Americano or grande Caramel Macchiato? There are plenty of other options for Long Islanders and we took a driving tour. Scroll down and tap the boxes below for five coffee shops from across Suffolk County you’re sure to like.
Coffee Booths (Selden)
If you have a sweet tooth and you love coffee, Coffee Booths is your spot.
Located on 226 Middle Country Road in Selden, the shop was opened in 2015 by a Selden couple, Ronnie and Melissa Booth. They left their corporate jobs to fulfill a dream of opening up a neighborhood coffee shop that experiments with natural ingredients in creative ways.
Their beans are also sourced from Long Island’s own Aldo’s Coffee Company in Greenport.
These creative, Instagram-able coffees have gained considerable social media attention, with 12,000-plus followers on Instagram and growing.
Just look at this creation below — it was the Iced Apple Crumb Latte. This fall special was made using red apples blended with a touch of cinnamon from a homemade apple syrup melted into a shot of espresso and cooled with milk.
Creations like that helped the Coffee Booths earn the Bethpage Best of Long Island 2021 award for best coffeehouse for the fifth year, the couple says.
“The flavors evolve from things we thought we could make coffee taste like,” said Melissa. “It became a challenge.”
They also recommends trying the homemade Double Stuffed Oreo coffee. It’s made with homemade cookie butter melted into a shot of espresso and then cooled down with milk and shaken over ice with whipped cream crumbled Oreo cookies and icing is drizzled on top.
