The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

We’ve been a little starstruck lately with Chef Michael Mignano, who owns the Main Street Bakery in Port Washington and wowed us just before Valentine’s Day with a secret-recipe chocolate bar so good that Oprah raved about it on TV.

While Mignano is busy making bread and pastries and about 70 Main Street Bars a day, he also serves brunch on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. A tasting last year left a colleague somewhat disappointed, but Mignano was on his game this past weekend.

A friend and I split the spinach and goat cheese frittata and the buttermilk blueberry pancakes and were seduced by the mouthful. Also on the menu are challah French toast with strawberries poached in maple syrup and sauteed pencil asparagus with poached eggs, served with melted brie and fresh dill.

What’s so nice about the bakery is that it has a SoHo feel to it, and food and baked goods a cut above the rest.

Main Street Bakery is at 170 Main St., Port Washington; 516-304-5214
