If you are a blogger or follow any on instagram, you know that the perfect latte art for a picture is a must! On an island that is 118 miles long filled with restaurants and shops, you wouldn’t think it would be this hard to find a place that can make a heart in your latte. But for years I have been in search of the perfect place. Southdown coffee is the only place that has remotely came close to latte art without making it look like a tornado in my cup. To be honest, I’m not a coffee drinker at all. I mainly started drinking it for “the gram” and instagram pictures so I have wasted plenty of cups just trying to get that picture. I am sure every blogger can totally relate. I am super happy I found a local place that is only a fifteen minute drive to.
This quaint little coffee shop with seating reminds of me coffee spots you see in Manhattan or in the hip area’s of Brooklyn. It is the perfect place for couple to go for a coffee date. Southdown Coffee almost feels like it doesn’t belong in Oyster Bay. It is very comfortable and laid back. I love the whole vibe of this place. This is not your local Starbucks. It is truly a unique experience. Almost as if they are bringing you Brooklyn in Long Island. They also offer a great selection of breakfast items as well as snacks. Make sure to try the donut of course, if you stop in. The baristas there are very personable and friendly. If you are out in town running errands, it is the perfect shop to stop in to catch a breath and grab a quick snack.
