Scratch-Made & Local at ECO Coffee House, East Hampton

After months of drooling over this sweet (and savory) spot’s Instagram photos, we finally made the trek up the river to sample. What we found was a celebrated one-woman-show, perched on a corner in the little village of East Hampton. Susan, owner and operator of ECO Coffee House keeps her menu simple. Delicious coffees and teas (I am addicted to the Hot Mexican already) plus hot soups and sandwiches are ordered from the window of her coffee house. It will remain takeout-only for the time being. Centered on scratch-made, her dishes are a culmination of ingredients sourced from small local purveyors. We couldn’t resist the Kielbasa Chorizo Potato Cheddar Soup made with local beer and add a salty Eight Mile Meadow pretzel for dipping (see below). Choose from her collection of sandwiches (when available): Hammy Sammy – Eight Mile’s sourdough-stuffed-with-cheddar, toasted Chetzul with whole grain mustard and ham, Smoked Salmon Sando – made from Smoked Salmon from Acme Smoked Fish in Brooklyn and Hydrocat Microgreens (from East Hampton) and the stunning (pictured above) Stracciatella Avo Toast made with Stracciatella from Liuzzi Cheese in Hamden. Peruse her Instagram for colorful shots of daily offerings and it’s likely you’ll be lured there too. @ecocoffeehousect
