Buckram Stables Cafe was conceived, designed and created by long time Locust Valley residents who embraced the nostalgia and history of the Gold Coast. They not only envisioned an atmosphere reminiscent of bygone days but built the restaurant to reflect it.
In 1667 Captain John Underhill purchased the land and called the area Buckram. This lasted for nearly 200 years, until 1856 when the town became known as Locust Valley because of the number of locust trees in the area.
In 1986 Buckram Stables Cafe was established in the building which was originally the Valley Tea Shoppe. Extensive renovation began which included adding a cupola to the building and the outdoor patio which has a putting green. The booths were built and designed to resemble old world horse stalls with several drawings of famous race horses adorning them. There is also a mural painted by Peggy Pridham Schuld beside the bar depicting a local farm.
For each season the restaurant is decorated to display the magic of that season. Be sure to check out the tiny details of the winter, spring, summer, and fall scene next time you come in.
