Carissa’s Bakery is absolutely one of the best additions to the east end of Long Island in years. Carissa’s puts out some of the most incredible breads and pastries. The salty soured pickled rye is genius. Crunchy outside, soft inside with this intensity of salt and sour that gets better as the days go by.

She just opened her second location and thankfully it is close to our home out here. There is a serene soothing vibe to the bakery. Feels a bit like Copenhagen.

There will be breakfast, lunch and dinner soon enough. Will hopefully become a fixture for those who live here year round or visit every chance they can.

Outside sitting feels a bit like the streets of a European city.

A must stop for anyone making their way out east this summer….and fall, spring and winter!

    Good morning! I just had a dream that you gave me my first fashion internship! Jesus Christ, I don’t know what you saw in me that was fashionable, but thanks!! I had the perfect outfit to wear on my first day, I just had to get my pants hemmed…I’m 100% sure it was because of this book I was up till 4 am reading last night, and the author reminds me of you. I mean, now that I’ve googled her, I see she has a much quieter demeanor, so it must be that her editor must just talk like you. Anyway, if you haven’t already, you need to get Chronicles of a Fashion Buyer by Mercedes Gonzales. You won’t be able to put it down. She’s got the same New York scrappiness and smarts that you have and she takes you through a breathtaking ride through the world of fashion.
