It is not every day I get to go out for breakfast in the Hamptons, but if I head out at the right time, it could be one of the most relaxing and satisfying ways to start my day. Whether it’s an elaborate al fresco experience or a quick pick-me-up, here are my favorite spots to head to this summer.
There’s a reason why this spot is always packed during the height of the season. I love to mix up each visit with a different omelet such as the Champignon or Newport with turkey sausage and sun-dried tomatoes. Its organic “Oregon Chai” latte is also a favorite.
Estia’s Little Kitchen
A staple spot of mine for many years, I recommend coming in as early as possible. I love to grab a table in the side room. Depending upon what I am craving, it is usually a toss-up between Isabelle’s Request: Tuscan toast topped with goat cheese, spinach, and two poached eggs or the chocolate chip pancakes.
I love to come here either in the late morning or early afternoon for brunch. If I am eating in, I order the two-egg omelet with ratatouille and a mimosa. If not, I go for its St. Barth smoothie with pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and low-fat yogurt.
Hampton Coffee Company
My favorite spot for coffee if I am heading west. After a fitness class, I get an iced latte or a ginger peach iced tea. When I have guests, I always pick up a bag of hand-roasted coffee and biscotti by Aldo, sold at the counter.
A place I can never seem to get enough of! Its Heaven on Earth smoothie is one of the best. Other favorites include Doctor Green Juice, and the Ginger Fireball, to reset and recharge. Juice Press has seasonal locations in East Hampton, Bridgehampton, and Southampton.
