I went into town just to get some coffee and a doughnut and wound up at the Golden Pear café. Very good coffee, and the donuts weren't bad either.

This small cafe turned out to be one of the better places we ate while in the Hamptons. Turns out that most restaurants don't open for breakfast until 9:00 a.m. and I needed to be on the road by that time. Went into the Golden pear because it was open, and was pleasantly surprised. Got a really nice breakfast from... More

The Golden Pear is one of our favorite spots for lunch when visiting East Hampton - the staff is always incredibly friendly and the food is always fresh. Our favorite dish is the Chopped Salad with Chicken and Avocado (w/ Tangerine Dressing) - it's huge! I also love the Tropical Iced Tea. The food is a bit pricey - the... More

My husband and I were there with our two granddaughters. We all had paninis which were average. The prices were extremely high.

Golden Pear is a bit pricey. It's basically a fancy deli. The sandwiches there are really good and their pastries are good too! Service is average, but it's nice that they have little benches in the window and seating in the back. There's something about just grabbing a bite to eat and watching the summer buzz on Newtown Lane from... More

We were touring through The Hamptons & stopped in here for lunch. You order at the counter & then pick up your order. The food was ok, but not great. I had a panini. Other people in our group got their food & I waited & waited. Then I went up to the counter to check on my order &... More

Coziest spot to have a good hearty breakfast. Kid and pet friendly. It's packed in the summer but the quality of the food is still excellent.

We stopped here on our last morning on our way to the station. The food was fine but it is all in cardboard baskets, including the yoghurt and granola. No table service but good for a quick bite.
