As the chilly Hamptons sea breeze begins to intertwine with freezing winter winds, East Enders scramble to find anything to make themselves feel toasty warm—both inside and out. Coffee is the first thing to come to mind—cappuccino if you’re extra classy—but it’s not exactly a satisfying snack all on its own.

In the colder months, there’s no combination more comforting than a hot cup of joe and some warm baked goods. Whether you pair pumpkin bread or banana nut, a chocolate muffin or blueberry, it’s sure to hit the spot! Sure, Starbucks probably has some great options, but there’s something extra special about visiting a local bakery to taste a delicious snack made with local ingredients by East Enders, for East Enders. But where, oh where, can you find a list of the spots serving the boldest coffee and the sweetest treats in the Hamptons and on the North Fork? You know it. We know it. Look no further than Dan’s 2018 Best of the Best Bakeries!
