“Hey Anthony, I haven’t seen any posts on this place yet. I ate here when I first moved to LB about 12 yrs ago and it’s been vacant ever since. Island Thyme….South East corner of Beech and New York Ave”
A quick google search gave me this: www.islandthymelbny.com. The menu looks really great! I don’t have any other info, but I cannot wait to try it out!
Acai Bowls & Beyond: Long Island Superbowls is coming to Long Beach at 250 W. Park Avenue (old Zamboni location). They should be open within the next week or even sooner. One of the owners is a local Long Beach resident and they’re very excited to bring delicious Acai Bowls to our city by the sea!
Liddle Bites Play Cafe (132 E. Park Avenue) is now open! I’m going to just come out and say it: Liddle Bites is awesome! As a dad of toddlers; I know all about these places. I’ve been to them all. While they’re all unique in their own way, I am pleased to say Long Beach now has the best. It’s not because Liddle Bites has the freshest coat of paint, it’s the types of toys, nooks and experience it has to offer.
There you’ll find a life-sized doll house, a play cupcake shop, dress clothes, wooden houses, a ball-filled rocket along with a plethora of unique toys that even peaks the interest of adults (like me!). There are lots of tables for crafts, games and snacks. I love the 50’s style diner in the front.
Liddle Bites also sells various drinks [coffee, water, juice, etc], snacks and some toys. Forgot food for your hungry child? You can order from John Henry’s, which currently appears to be just a kid’s menu, but an adult menu is soon to follow.
Ingrid Ceniceros, the owner was telling me how every week they have a new theme. Last week it was puzzles; currently it’s Color By Numbers. It’s tough to say what age group this place is geared towards. For toddlers and younger, it’s absolutely perfect, but Ingrid said how she noticed older kids having fun there too.
If you have a child and haven’t been there yet, seriously check it out. You can find all the information you want, including pricing on the website. We bought a ten pack the first day we went, as my oldest wants to go to Liddle Bites everyday.

On July 15th, Livleen was riding her bike in Island Park where she was involved in the hit-and-run accident. She was literally run over and has been in ICU since the day of the accident (ventilator was just removed this week). Livleen is a single mother of a 3yr old daughter and her health insurance is leaving her with hundreds of thousands in unpaid hospital bills. She could use all the help she can get.
