Pipeline Coffee Company, a popular coffee shop currently based in Wantagh, is opening a second location in Rockville Centre on Saturday, April 27.
Owned and operated by Mike Santo and Pat Tighe—a physical therapist and local contractor, respectively—Pipeline Coffee is celebrated not only for its excellent, expertly roasted coffee, but for its from-scratch eats and sustainable practices, as well.
The eats include house-made meals and snacks prepared with fresh, local ingredients by chef Tony Mazzella of Exquisite Eats. Breakfast quesadillas and Turmeric wraps are two menu highlights, but all of Mazzella’s culinary offerings are impressive.
Also available at Pipeline is Greek yogurt from the locally owned and operated Nounos Creamery, Coastal Craft Kombucha, made in Oceanside, and splurge-worthy baked goods from Beary Delicious Bakeshop.
Of course, the star of the show at Pipeline remains the coffee. Pipeline’s coffee is some of Long Island’s freshest, with their lattes enjoying a cult following with reaches far beyond social media. Their signature cold brew is so popular that it is now sold at select locations across Nassau County. And now, thanks to the size of their new location, Pipeline will also enjoy its own on-site roastery.
“We are so excited to open our new location in Rockville Centre,” says Pipeline co-owner Mike Santo. “My partner [Pat Tighe] and I grew up there, so, for us, it’s a real return home.”
Local coffee drinkers will find plenty of reason to celebrate Santo and Tighe’s homecoming.
“It’s rare on Long Island, to be able to drink coffee in the same building where it’s roasted,” says Santo. “In our new location, people are going to be drinking coffee that was roasted 20 feet away from them. And then we’re going to ship the beans to our other location in Wantagh, too.”
It doesn’t get much fresher (or more local) than that.
Pipeline Coffee Company will open their second location on Saturday, April 27, at 318 Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre.
