Grindstone Coffee and Donuts in Sag Harbor the place seemed as busy as it was during the height of summer when it first opened (in early August) and we had first noticed it. Lynn and I have checked in there to get a pick me up shot of coffee and/or espresso. The coffee is strong and black as ink with the espresso having a nice chicory flavor. We have not tried the donuts yet (which make the store smell divine)but with summer over and beach body anxiety on hold for a bit we will certainly "cave" soon enough.

We have been there a couple of times and have enjoyed sitting at the bar as our servers and bartenders are attentive and amiable. I have favored the local Wolfer Rose (with grapes from Argentina) and
Lynn has gravitated to the Truffle Fries which are crusty, garlicky goodness. I have enjoyed the Tuna Tartare which has just the right amount of flavor and is served ice cold.
Lynn had "The Beekeeper" which is a refreshing blend of Vodka, Lavendar, honey, citrus and crystalized ginger garnish. With it's combination of sweetness and sting it is is rapidly becoming her favorite cocktail.

We had frequented Montauk lately and had tried a first rate well aged Tequila Anejo from Casamigos at Saltbox. Casamigos had a smoothness and a hint of oakiness that we associate with a well made bourbon. This smoothness of course makes sense since Geroge Clooney, no stranger to smoothness, is one of the owners of the company (along with Randy Gerber).

Montauk Brewing Co. on an early Friday afternoon. We loved all of the offerings. Of particular interest to us was the Driftwood Ale which had a fragrant, briny taste and the Watermelon Session Ale which was unbelievably refreshing and managed the difficult (to me at least) trick of infusing beer with fruit. The bartenders were great and really attentive and handled the many customers with good humor and finesse.

Papa Nick's Gluten Free Pizza. It has a nice, light crunch with a smoky flavor. Mainly, it doesn't play havoc with our weight the way traditional carb based pizza does. Great to be able to have it delivered and goes great with our favorite roses....
