A sparkling new cafe has opened in Huntington Station, ready to serve neighboring residents, workers and commuters.
May’s Gourmet Cafe opened in a mixed-use building at the corner of Northridge Street and New York Avenue, within walking distance of the Long Island Rail Road station.
May Ramos, who also owns May’s Gourmet Deli on West Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station, said the new cafe is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.
The cafe serves sandwiches, wraps, salads, bagels, fruit and vegetable salads, freshly made bakery, drinks such as iced coffee, and many other items. She also offers such specialties as blackened chicken.
Ramos has two full-time cafe workers, Mari and Tatiana, for the summer.
She got her start in the deli business, she said, when she was going to college, had two children and was looking for something where she could work at home or at work when needed.
Sixteen apartments on the second floor of the building are filled, and Renaissance Downtowns, master developer for the Huntington Station redevelopment project, will be moving into the building as well. A branch of Liberty Tax already occupies a part of the building.
