With the advent of summer and great weather abound, I decided to stroll and shop in my beloved Southampton Village. It is great to see the doors wide open as well the hopes and wishes for a good season.
To start the morning, I stopped into the . Casual feel upon entering, this deli-like atmosphere is anything but that. Its wonderful smell of coffee and fresh muffins fill the entrance. Careful to navigate the tight space, I approached the counter to see a nice assortment of muffins, rolls, bagels that could easily tell that they were made from scratch.
I ordered a toasted bagel with cream cheese and fixed myself a flavored coffee with half and half cream. Watching the people behind the counter gracefully hurry around each other with precision, I was asked if I would like to have a seat, they would bring it to me. Nice!
I was able to sit down with the local paper, read, and make the best of my favorite past time — people watching. This place has all sorts of people coming and going, as well it is an incredible busy spot — a sure sign something is being done right.
A great start to a great day, I embarked on my Main Street journey with a smile and perfect outlook...
and those are "The Last Bites"...
