The Coffee Shop is the best all around. Each of the numerous food options are cooked to perfection and the staff are very friendly. The chefs are all great guys and are very friendly. They're great to talk to while sitting at the counter. Very friendly waitresses and maintenance staff. Perfect lunch spot for families.

Best kept secret on Long Island. Center Coffee is an old fashioned shop from the old days. Food is delicious, and great for families. Owner is very friendly and warm.
