Spend Some Time in Stony Brook Village
Stony Brook Village has so much to see and do, you’re going to want to stay a while.
Plan an evening of fun by making dinner reservations at one of the Village’s many restaurants, including Mirabelle, Pentimento, Country House Inn or Sweet Mama’s and then head to the Jazz Loft for some cool music. Women can find a great new outfit at one of the many shops here, including Mint, Loft, Wish and Chico’s. Visit Blue Salon and Spa beforehand to relax and get rejuvenated. Men can visit Jos. A. Banks and Village Barber to refresh their image.
Or if you’re an outdoors person, spend the morning on a brisk trek along the scenic trails (including Avalon Park and Mill Pond) before warming up with a hot chocolate, coffee, tea and lighter fare at one of many restaurants including Sweet Mama’s, Fratelli’s, Crazy Beans and Robinson’s Tea House. Bird watchers and scenic photographers can see what’s new at Camera Concepts to enhance their equipment.
Need a special present for a loved one? Find some unique ideas at Cottontails, Crushed Olive, Chocolate Works, Crabtree & Evelyn, Village Florist, WMHO Educational and Cultural Center Gift Shop, Lakeside Emotions Wine & Spirits, Brew Cheese or Rocky Point Jewelers West. Parking at the Stony Brook Village Center is convenient.
Love Long Island history? You’ll find some great exhibits at the Long Island Museum of Art, History and Carriages. See the Brewster House, Stony Brook Grist Mill and Thompson House for Revolutionary War era experience. The All Souls Episcopal Church in the Village was designed by famed Gilded Age New York architect, Stanford White.
Make sure to check what’s happening at the Ward Melville Heritage Organization Educational & Cultural Center for events and exhibits.

It might seem like you’ve stepped back in time when you’re here. But there’s always something new happening and always so much to see and do.
