Locally-owned coffee roaster Hampton Coffee Company opened its 6th café location in Center Moriches recently, it’s first location in the Town of Brookhaven, and it’s westernmost outpost. The 27-year-old Southampton-based company’s newest café is located at 235 Montauk Highway, in front of the Center Moriches Free Library. In fact, the location is a joint venture between Hampton Coffee and the Library which recruited them two years ago to help them create a coffee bar experience for the Library’s patrons.
“We were so proud that we were selected by the Library Board to help design and operate their café,” said Hampton Coffee Company co-owner Jason Belkin. “We were looking to open in Center Moriches for some time. It’s such an amazing community and we kept hearing it was missing a local coffee place.”
The new Hampton Coffee features the same full breakfast, lunch, and dessert menu as the other Hampton Coffees, the nearest being in Westhampton Beach. Bakery items are baked here each morning and there are plenty of Gluten-Free and Vegan options. Coffee comes freshly roasted from their own Roastery in Southampton. Guests can also order on the Hampton Coffee Company App and pick-up their orders right inside the front door.
What makes this location unique is that when the Library is open, the space between the Library and the café opens into a lounge with a fireplace. Guests can bring in their Hampton Coffee food and drinks and enjoy comfy couch and worktable seating. There is also a long stool bar in the café with power outlets and free Wi-Fi for students and professionals to get some work done.
“We’re so proud of how the community has come out to support our new café,” said Theresa Belkin, Hampton Coffee Company co-owner. “Everyone who works here including me lives within 15 minutes of the store, many can even walk here. It’s great to be able to offer quality jobs to local students.”
The new Hampton Coffee Company in Center Moriches is open from 6am-5pm daily, features lots of convenient parking, and when the warmer weather arrives, there will be outside seating too, and be pet-friendly.
