A stroll along Love Lane fulfills any foodie cravings. And, the experience will help you check off some holiday gifts you still have to buy. Bring your appetite to Love Lane and you will find sweets, wine, cheese, Italian and Greek specialties and homemade empanadas. Spend the afternoon in Mattituck shopping and eating and wine-tasting, all within a 100-yard stretch.
Godiva chocolates (yes they have loads of truffles!) and unique gifts are available at the Love Lane Sweet Shoppe http://www.lovelanesweets.com Right next door is the Village Cheese Shop http://www.thevillagecheeseshop.com where you can get a wide assortment of domestic and imported cheeses, butters, olive oils, meats and fantastic bread. Stay for a cheese and charcuterie board in their sunny atrium.
Grab a sandwich or salad at Ammirati’s http://ammiratisoflovelane.com (or if you had an early start, get a good breakfast). You may then be inspired to enjoy wine tasting at Roanoke Vineyards Wine Bar https://www.roanokevineyards.net considered some of the best of the Long Island wine region. Cross the street to take in all the Italian specialties at Lombardi’s Market – eat there or bring home dinner already prepared (or maybe some tasty ingredients to whip up your own meal!) http://www.lombardislovelanemarket.com
Love Lane is between Route 25 and Route 48, otherwise know and the south and north roads – very easy to get to. Park behind the stores in the public lots on either side of the street. We suggest you glance at their websites to check their winter hours.
