I will be visiting my father and sister this coming Sat. again and will probably end up eating both lunch and dinner around Hauppauge area. One thing I dread about visiting them in Hauppauge over the past 13 years is the limited restaurant choices they know. In the recent years we seem to always end up at either Kotobuki or Takara and I'm tired of them, esp. the ridiculous long wait at Kotobuki. Their other suggestions are Olive Garden and Burger King, which I refuse to set my foot in but I don't feel like driving into Queens to get decent eats. I can't believe there aren't better restaurant choices in the area. I need help! Also, I'm looking for a good cafe that serves good coffee with a relaxing atmosphere that we can linger a while, not a Starbuck please. Please help me end this dining misery once for all. Thanks.
