The day has come, daytime cocktail fans.
Toast Coffeehouse in Patchogue has got its liquor license.
Since opening in 2015, it was just beer, wine and saki drinks at the village’s insanely popular breakfast, lunch and brunch spot at 46 East Main.
Now you can enjoy brunch — which U.S. restaurant experts say has taken over the club scene among younger people going out — with mimosas, screwdrivers, Irish coffees, boat drinks and more.
What immediately caught our attention on the drink menu was the bacon salt rim option for the Toast bloody Mary.
Owner Terence Scarlatos said the initial idea in Patchogue was to not serve liquor, as is still the case at the company’s original Port Jeff location.
“But when we opened in Bay Shore, the prior place had a liquor license already, so it was easier to get a license there,” he said.
The drinks proved popular.
Now you can grab them in Patchogue, with exception of the Fire Island Rocket Fuel; that’s going to remain a Bay Shore thing.
Toast is using mainly small-batch spirits. Scroll down for more photos of bartender Taylor Schumann in action.
Oh, and ask for the seasonal cocktail menu.
