Red Label Coffee and Scoops & Cones open joint location in West Sayville


Sayville just got twice as sweet.

Red Label Coffee Co. and Scoops & Cones Cafe teamed up to open a combined location at 14 Washington Ave., taking over the former site of Cool Beans Coffee Shoppe, which closed in November.

“We thought, ice cream and coffee? There’s nothing better than that,” said Joseph Vitale, who co-owns Red Label Coffee with his brother Jonathan.

The Vitale brothers have been friends with Thomas Cacciopoli, the owner of Scoops & Cones Cafe, for the past five years. They always knew they wanted to go into business together. When this location became available, they jumped at the opportunity.

“We wanted to expand into Suffolk County and continue to grow,” said Jonathan, who learned the coffee trade alongside his brother from their mother, who worked in coffee shops during their childhood.

Both Red Label and Scoops & Cones have already made their mark in Nassau County. Red Label has locations in East Rockaway, Merrick, and Island Park, while Scoops & Cones can be found in Wantagh and Farmingdale, and also inside Pizza Undici, a Massapequa pizzeria owned by Cacciopoli.

The trio swung open the doors to their first Suffolk County location on Tuesday.

The concept

Here’s what you can expect:

Upon entering, you’ll find two sides.

On one side, a coffee bar offers a wide selection of caffeinated beverages. Red Label is renowned for its 50 flavors of iced coffees that contains no sugar. “The flavors are roasted into the beans, so it has the same calorie count as a regular black coffee,” Joseph explained. One of their top sellers is the French toast flavor, they said.

On the other side, Scoops & Cones is ready to serve. Here, you can choose from their selection of handmade ice cream. They also offer waffles and crepes made right in front of customers, as well as freshly baked brownies and gourmet cookies.

They also collaborate to offer specialty items such as affogato, an Italian dessert where ice cream is drowned in coffee.
