INSTASTORY: East Main & Main | Port Jefferson
You ever walk around a charming little city and go “this is incredible” and yet, you feel like something is missing, but you just can’t pinpoint it?
A missing piece to the puzzle of quaint, classy Port Jefferson, N.Y. has arrived folks, and BOY is it worth your time and a trip.
I heard about East Main and Main through word of mouth (my boss, his girlfriend and my boss’ son knew about it). The brand new gourmet donut shop, situated next to what I think is the best breakfast place in Port Jefferson, Toast Coffeehouse, is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.
From a donut wall perfect for your Instagram selfies, to a cute lounge in the back to sit and relax, this is going to be your new fave place to chillax in Port Jeff.
I had the chance to meet the owner, Lisa, while I was there, and she had told me (when I was there earlier this week) the shop has been open for about two weeks.
These aren’t just your typical run-of-the-mill donuts.
This is a billion steps up from the Dunkin’ Donuts down the street.
The summer donut menu flavors range from the light and fruity, including the Lemon Blueberry (Lemon glaze made with fresh squeezed lemons, bits of plump Maine blueberries and lemon zest) to Key Lime Puff (Zesty lime frosting topped with its vanilla cream, a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs) to the chocolatey goodness flavors such as the Chocolate (chocolate frosted), Cookie Doh (chocolate frosted donut with a ball of cookie dough on top), to the PB Cups (rich smooth with chocolate frosting, peanut butter ganache and smashed peanut butter cups on top), to the daily specials, there’s sure to be a new favorite of yours on this ever-changing menu of deliciousness.
Not only does East Main and Main label themselves as a dessert bar, it’s partnered with For Five Coffee Roasters from NYC to bring you its selection of coffee drinks including a cold brew and a Nitro Brew.
As donut walls have become quite the thing at parties, East Main and Main will also design not only a donut wall for your future party, but a donut tower or donut cake too! Check out its parties section for more.
When I went, I put together an Instagram Story, and spliced together the replay for you to see inside the donut shop for yourself. Thanks to Mike, Lisa and Schummy for taking part in the donut tasting :)! Check out my boss’ website, Schumm Team, for awesome house listings across Long Island!
