Honey Bees Buzzes into Northport

New bakery brings a bit of Brooklyn to Northport.

You don't need to take the BQE for a taste of Brooklyn. Honey Bees Bakery at 180 Main Street in Northport receives daily deliveries of fresh pies, breads, cakes, pastries, and more from the old neighborhood, along with refreshing beverages to wash it all down.

Vivian and Bill Sachelari of Greenlawn took inspiration from their family when opening up the cozy bakery in May. Vivian, who grew up in Northport, knew she wanted a business in her hometown and teamed up with her Brooklynite husband Bill, whose family had been in the restaurant industry for years, to open a bakery specializing in Brooklyn baked goods. The name "Honey Bee's" came from a combination of Bill's affectionate term for his wife and their daughter Brittany's nickname.

So far the import concept has done well in Northport, said Vivian. Italian pastries are flying off the shelves, along with the prosciutto bread, Italian semolina, cannoli cookies, lobster tails, lemon balls, and more. They also offer sfogliatalle, caramel cones, Napoleans, custard cream puffs, and a large selection of gluten free cupcakes, cookies, and brownies and baking mixes.

Honey Bees also sells overflowing fresh pies such as blueberry crumb and coconut custard made by a local baker are also available and can be made to order. A variety of breads such as calamata, olive cluster, Brooklyn Bialy, rosemary herb focaccia, and more are also available. Cakes from Brooklyn can also be ordered.

Honey Bees is open seven days a week and will deliver with a $15 minimum purchase between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Their hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Their phone number is 631-651-5180.

I love Honey Bees and I want to add one important extra. The prices are very reasonable! The taste of Brooklyn/Bensonhurst is genuine. I can't wait to get back to try more of the goodies.
