The new 1014 Coffee House in Northport turned out to be a sweet find. That’s because the place not only serves coffee drinks and pastries but – for me, the magic charm – gelato.
Excellent gelato, in fact, from a Connecticut-based company called Gelato Giuliana. My favorite flavors: a swirl of chocolate, espresso and mascarpone called “La Giuliana” and an intensely bittersweet chocolate. As for the coffee, I found creditable espresso and cappuccino, as well. And ultra-friendly service.
The coffeehouse (under the same ownership as 1019 Cafe, across the road) is decorated in Adirondack Lodge motif, complete with an antlered white tail deer head over the fireplace and overstuffed club chair and sofa. Plenty of tables, too. Saturday night, you’ll find live music. Seasonal activities are on the calendar, as well.
1014 Coffee House is at 1014 Fort Salonga Rd., Northport, 631-651-8114.
