Roosevelt Island Finally Getting An Ice Cream Store - Coach Scot's Main Street Sweets Grand Opening Tomorrow December 19

What's the latest on Roosevelt Island Main Street retail stores? I asked that question of Hudson Related's David Kramer (the Main Street Master Leaseholder) last Thursday who reported:

The wine store got its liquor license recently. I think the ice cream store and market are going to open shortly. We’re working on a bunch of things, but nothing until they’re finalized.
The ice cream store is indeed about to open - tomorrow. According to Roosevelt Island resident Scot Bobo, owner of Coach Scot's Main Street Sweets:
Grand Opening December 19, 7am!

The place is looking great!
and they will be serving
The Best Ice Creams, Yogurt, Hot Drinks, Breakfast Foods, and Delicious Low-Cal Alternatives

As soon as tomorrow, Roosevelt Island will have its very own ice cream store to enjoy like this young man had during a recent training session

 at Coach Scot's

Main Street Sweets.

Good luck with your new business Scot!!!

Le'ts get the other stores open soon as well!!!! Please.

There seemed to be a "soft" opening today. The place is very cute and cheerful. I haven't tried anything yet, so I won't comment on the food.

Tried three flavors (mint choc chip, butter pecan, cherry vanilla), all good. Chocolate croissant, good. Cappuccino, better than Starbucks.

It looks fantastic.

I had a very nice mini scone yesterday, for $1.50. Today I was asked to pay $2.50 (plus tax) for a mini cupcake (less than 2" in diameter.) No, thanks,

That's too much. The actual cost is probably less than 50 cents per cake, probably more in the neighborhood of a quarter to 30 cents per cake - so he shouldn't charge more than a dollar a piece. Too bad Hostess has gone belly-up.

I thought it would be about the same price as the scone, which I thought fair. I don't mind paying for quality, (unknown, in this case, but obviously commercial) but I do mind being overcharged.

CheshireKitty said...

By commercial, do you mean they're from a large/commercial supplier?

Main Street Sweets was inspected by the DOH on 1/24. They received an A grade with 12 violation points. I found it odd that in a newly-built storefront they have plumbing issues.

1) Appropriately scaled metal stem-type thermometer or thermocouple not provided or used to evaluate temperatures of potentially hazardous foods during cooking, cooling, reheating and holding.
2) Plumbing not properly installed or maintained; anti-siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required; equipment or floor not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly.
3) Accurate thermometer not provided in refrigerated or hot holding equipment.
