Beanberry Goes Dark, Owners Looking to Sell [Empty in Miller Place]

Beanberry Caffe closes down and the new owners are being sought for the location.

The in Miller Place officially closed down last week, and now the owners are looking to sell.

A once popular spot for some locals offering live music and other programs along with coffee, drinks and food, Beanberry was unable to sustain business and now they are looking for someone to buy, according to the daughter of the building owner, Helen Haghani.

"They have a few people interested and we’ve had a few people who came in," Haghani said. "They are not doing business right now, but they are trying to sell.

The interior has been kept intact, the location is zoned for wet use and the store also has its liquor license.

"The place has been done inside very nicely," Haghani said. "There are different options. A deli would do very well and they might have a frozen yogurt place coming in to look."

Haghani is also looking to bring in a new business to the location in the shopping center her father and brother built 25 years ago.

"It’s made of steel and concrete, it’s very well built," she said. "More than half of our tenants have stayed there for many years and they are very happy, but the economy is not great so you have these things going on all the time."

Interested business owners can call Haghani at 516-641-7702.

grabbed a coffee there a few times, think being so close to starbucks was their demise

Never heard of the place. Maybe others are thinking the same thing.

I went there 3 times. Twice I waited & waited & waited and no one came out to help me so I left. The other time I went they isn't have what I like to drink (and I don't drink coffee)

I had coffee there a few times myself...the place was too close to Starbucks, which, I am sure contributed to its demise. The place was always empty when I stopped in.

They shouldve opened a place in shirley/mastic (they need something out there-no starbucks or any cafe's) or opened a place in riverhead. I went in there one time bought a coffee for myself and a small frozen strawberry banana thingy for my fiance, it came out to 14 bucks i was not too happy with the quality for that kind of hamptons price

This is unfortunate. I thought Beanberry's was a nice spot to sit back and have a tea and piece of cake. Nice ambience, lots of magazines to read, comfortable seating and the best part was the music every weekend. I hope something similar can replace it.

Maybe a nice TD Bank, or CVS?

That might be a good spot for Teavana; if people don't want to pay a lot for Coffee at Starbuck's, they can pay a lot for Tea there.
