'Toast' to open 5,000+ square feet location in Ronkonkoma Station Yards


Toast Coffee + Kitchen, a beloved purveyor of local breakfast and lunch eatery, is set to open a new location at the bustling Station Yards, the dynamic mixed-use development situated at the Ronkonkoma train station. Promising to blend the rich aromas of artisanal coffee with the savory notes of upscale breakfast and lunch offerings, Toast Coffee + Kitchen is expanding its reach to the heart of one of the most anticipated developments in Suffolk County.

Taking up a generous 5,004 square feet of space immediately across the street from the train station, Toast is gearing up to provide commuters, residents, and visitors with a welcoming environment to savor high-quality food and beverages. The lease agreement was facilitated by the expertise of Allen Boulos, Richard Cardona, Matthew Sullivan, and Scott Schneider of Patchouge's Evernest Commercial Real Estate, who represented Toast in the transaction. TRITEC Real Estate Company, the developer behind Station Yards, was represented by the dedicated team of Steven D'Orazio, Maria Valanzano, and Jake Horowitz of Colliers.

Broker and Founder at Evernest Commercial Real Estate, Allen Boulos, has deep roots with Toast and its founder, Terry Scarlatos. Allen conveyed his excitement for the Toast/TRITEC collaboration, saying, "As someone who worked at Toast and with Terry and his family for 15 years, I can't think of a better brand and a better person who embodies what TRITEC is building in Ronkonkoma and across Long Island. Terry has created a brand that is more than just amazing food and coffee. Toast is a feeling of community, culture, art, and originality, and TRITEC is also creating these feelings across Long Island. This partnership is a match made in heaven."

Evernest agent Ricky Cardona is very familiar with the Toast ethos, having worked alongside Allen and owner Terry for many years. "Seeing the Toast brand flourish the way it has—the way it will continue to—is something extremely special for us to experience."

Vice President of Colliers Jake Horowitz expressed enthusiasm about Toast's addition: "We are thrilled to welcome a high-end coffee and restaurant establishment like Toast to Station Yards. Toast has built a loyal following by providing quality food and coffee to its patrons for years, and we can't wait to see them flourish at Station Yards."

Toast Coffee + Kitchen is renowned for its commitment to quality, a characteristic that has cultivated a devoted customer base. At Station Yards, Toast aims to continue this tradition by serving up its well-loved menu that includes locally sourced ingredients and a curated selection of coffee and tea. Kelley Heck, Executive Vice President of TRITEC, said, "This new establishment is more than just a place to grab a cup of coffee; it's poised to become a community hub where ideas are shared over meticulously crafted lattes and farm-fresh meals. I grew up blocks from Toast's original location and know firsthand what they bring to a neighborhood."

"We are absolutely thrilled about the prospect of teaming up with TRITEC and Station Yards! Our original location was near their headquarters, and we were able to foster a fantastic relationship over the years. Their steadfast commitment to uplifting Long Island communities and businesses has always impressed us, making our decision to collaborate with them an absolute no-brainer. As a proud Ronkonkoma local who has witnessed the incredible revitalization efforts firsthand, I believe this opportunity is a dream come true. We're ready to bring our passion and energy to this new venture and create something truly extraordinary together! This location will be unique to the other locations because it will have a dedicated grab and go/take away area for commuters, " said Terry Scarlatos, Toast Coffee + Kitchen owner.

Toast Coffee + Kitchen's arrival at Station Yards marks a significant milestone for the development, adding to the locale's vibrancy and appeal. This partnership reflects Toast's shared values and dedication to excellence, which the developers of Station Yards share.

Toast Coffee + Kitchen at Station Yards is expected to open in the summer of 2024 and invites everyone to experience the perfect blend of taste and tradition.
