Starving Artist Cafe & Gallery

City Island


For 15 years, this café has been the cultural heart of City Island, hosting live music and open-mic performances on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday, and showcasing the work of local visual artists. Originally opened by owner Elliott Glick to sell his handcrafted jewelry, the spot has transformed into a local hangout/coffeehouse where guests can catch anything from live blues music to stand-up comedy.
