Sag Harbor is often lauded as the un-Hampton. While other East End hamlets have welcomed the likes of Starbucks and McDonald’s into their midst, the old whaling village has remained steadfast in keeping locally-owned restaurants in and fast food chains out. For non–Sag Harborites visiting during the annual HarborFrost on February 23 or any other time of year, the long list of unfamiliar eateries can be a bit daunting.

Not to worry, we’ve compiled a comprehensive dining guide to the restaurants, coffee shops and delis of Sag Harbor. Bon Appétit!
