I brought in our 2006 car to the shop for an oil change and the mechanic was shocked at our very low mileage. I explained to him, it is because everything I need is right here in Port Jefferson Station.

Colonial Coffee Company
Serving Our Community Since 1968
Gary Contes of Colonial Coffee has been a member of the Port Jefferson Station / Terryville Chamber of Commerce since 2003 and currently serves as our Membership Director. Colonial Coffee has been serving our community for 51 years. Their very first customer was and still is, Comsewogue Library.
Not only is Colonial Coffee a wholesale distributor to restaurants, delis, bagel shops and offices, but they specialize in single use pods of their own brand called Terrace Cafe Cups. Their beautiful website Terracecafecups.com, makes it a breeze to order. Their delicious coffees come in hundreds of personally developed flavors.
Gary provides all of the coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccino for our events and meetings at the chamber Train Car. No ask is too great, no schedule too tight; he comes through, with arms full in good cheer and often has a volunteer by his side. We are grateful because we know his time is stretched; he is also busy with charitable endeavors, such as his support of the Welcome Friends soup kitchen, wherein every Friday night in Port Jeff, folks gather for a free meal. “It is a humbling experience,” says Gary, whose motto is, Encourage Someone Today. In addition to his Port Jefferson Station coffee market, he has a coffee market in Stony Brook Village.
I encourage you to visit Terracecafecups.com, call at 631.473.4747, find him on Facebook, Instagram or stop in one of his stores.
Polar Express Success
What a huge success! Our Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce does it again! A series of four business to community events- culminated on Sunday Dec 16, 2018 with the final viewing of ‘The Polar Express’ movie nights, inside our antique chamber train car at the corner of NYS RTE 112 and 347- offered with all the trimmings including ‘I Believe’ jingle bells tied in ribbon like those in the film, – gifted to all children, plus Polar Express Movie poster-backdrop Portraits, as well as those with Santa who surprised children at the close of the film – photos which families access from our pjstchamber.com site. This and more all due to extraordinary organization skills of our chamber Vice President, Larry Ryan, manager of Port Jeff Bowl and support of Chamber directors.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
Welcome Community friends,
We are gathered here today to keep PRIDE in Port Jefferson Station. We LOVE our Community! Our community has so many wonderful things to offer and the best local businesses around.
We can not let bad publicity of our local area lower our expectations of where we live, work, shop, and play! We as a community are better than that.
The local business in this area and shopping center are hurting. They need the support of the community! Even though some of you choose to not shop here any longer, these wonderful local businesses still donate their time, money, and goods to our schools, churches and other organizations that we belong to. Think about that!
The small business is the back bone in every community and when an area within is threatening their livelihood, we the community need to say that we will not let that happen. Let our Voices be heard and our Presence be known that this community will be here to support our local businesses, no matter what!
