“0.9 Miles great views and great food . cozy colonial built almost 100 years ago. The spectacular water views. Chilled raw bar, aged steaks and the freshest local seafood that Long Island has to offer. The extensive wine list repeatedly is given the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence". The heated outdoor patio is open year round so don't think of us as a summer only place.”

“We often visit Copenhagen bakery in the beautiful weather after walking around Northport harbor and town. A little bit of indulgence after a brisk walk by the harbor. A little piece of Denmark with American flair! Try the Copenhagen burger (Albondigas, red onion) with waffle fries and the San Francisco BLT with avocado on sourdough bread. Scenic view of Northport Harbor. Saturday Mornings you get to hear musicians outside. ”
