If you are going to the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, or an afternoon performance at the Jazz Loft, Crazy Beans, located right in Stony Brook Village, is a great place for breakfast or lunch (they close at 3:00 on Weekdays and 4:00 on Weekends). It’s even great if you just take a walk around the lovely area. This is a cozy venue, with retro-decor ( red, black and white).The food is great, the service lovely. Their specialty coffees are a real treat. My cappuccino was perfectly made, with the foam lasting all the way to the bottom.
We need to caution you however, that this may not be the best choice for a wheelchair user. Although the street-level, double doors make entry easy, once inside you are met with narrow aisles, which may make navigation difficult. The single-occupancy restroom is located in a corner, making it difficult to enter. Although it may be technically “accessible,” due to handrails, it is too small to accommodate a wheelchair.
Now that you know the above, let’s continue. Accessible parking is available around the Village. No matter where you park there is some walking involved to get to the entrance. Once you open those door you are “in.” Although this is a relatively small space, they have managed to fit in quite a lot; booths, tables and a full-height counter (bar). As we said before, there is not much space between tables, or anywhere else!
Both the food and service have been great each time I have been here. On this particular day, my omelette was done exactly as I had requested and my cappuccino was PERFECT! Anything I have ever tried here has been declicious. My server, as always, was lovely.
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.crazybeansrestaurant.com, when planning a visit to “know before you go.”
