West Hempstead only occupies 2.8 square miles of space. Is it really possible that there are so many great places to eat in such a small town? The answer is yes. If you don’t believe it, you need to read this guide to West Hempstead restaurants.
West Hempstead Restaurants
The Witches Brew
The Witches Brew is not your standard café. Upon entering, you’ll first notice the delightfully eccentric, mismatching décor and invigorating smell of incense. While “coffee shop” may be an appropriate label for The Witches Brew, it’s not at all like your average Starbucks. Here, you’ll find over 100 varieties of coffee and tea. Not only that, there is a full food menu that is made up mainly of vegan and vegetarian options that even carnivores will love. The fries are flawlessly seasoned, the sandwiches are tasty and perfectly proportioned and the dessert options are endless. The Witches Brew doesn’t have a website, so their menu isn’t online. You’ll just have to take our word for it: this is one of the best West Hempstead restaurants around.
Venus Restaurant is a cozy, family-owned establishment that serves American, Greek and Italian food. It’s a perfect place for any meal. Their Greek salad is what every other Greek salad should aspire to be: simple, fresh and light. Breakfast at the Venus Restaurant is particularly great. You can’t go wrong with any breakfast food when you’re eating here. Just make sure you order a side of their excellent hash browns.
If you, like many people, have struggled to find fresh, high-quality sushi at a reasonable price, you’re in luck. Sushi Palace offers a long list of modestly priced sushi rolls, many of which are rather unique. The Hamachi roll, which is a crunchy yellowtail roll with jalapeño, cilantro and sweet garlic is especially good. The menu, however, is not limited to sushi. Teriyaki, tempura, noodle dishes and other Japanese cuisine are also available and equally as delicious.
Gino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant
Gino’s is a pizza parlor first and foremost. The selection of pizza is vast and the portions are generous. It’s the perfect place to stop off for a crispy, flavorful plain slice or a specialty slice topped with fresh ingredients. But Gino’s doesn’t stop at pizza. Order anything off of their menu, from calzones to pasta to paninis and you won’t be disappointed.
Cherry Valley Deli and Grill
Cherry Valley Deli and Grill is not only one of the best West Hempstead restaurants, it is one of the best delis in all of New York. They have hot and cold sandwiches, soups and salads that are made of only the freshest ingredients. They are big enough to satisfy any appetite. In addition to lunchtime foods, Cherry Valley also serves all sorts of hearty breakfast heroes, omelets and French toast. Unlike most other delis, Cherry Valley doesn’t stop serving breakfast at 11 a.m. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week you can walk into Cherry Valley and order anything you want—even breakfast. The only bad thing about this incredible deli is that you’ll spend quite a lot of time deciding exactly which one of their magnificent sandwiches you want to eat.
