I've said it before and I'll say it again, there are few things that I love more than spending the day out east. And when I say out east, I mean from Riverhead, NY and beyond (not just Suffolk County). Every town out there has something special to offer and feels like a mini-vacation from the hustle and grind that New York constantly pushes out.
This post is a little bit of a throwback, but I couldn't move on to my current situation without giving this place the recognition it deserves. Love Lane is a road in Mattituck that you can spend a long afternoon shopping at boutiques and eat from different cafes and restaurants. My mother, sister, and I stumbled upon Love Lane Kitchen while looking for a good brunch.
It's hard for us to agree on a place to eat because I tend to lean towards more healthy and refreshing meals which can be kind of boring for a lot of people, while they like more fun, savory places to eat. This diner-esque restaurant has something for every kind of eater. I was able to order fresh cold-pressed juice and warm butternut squash soup while they ordered a delicious stuffed french toast and sweet potato hash. There was even a walk-up counter where you could order a coffee and a quick breakfast to go.
This is the perfect place to catch up with friends, go for a cute breakfast date or even a just to grab a quick meal with someone. For your outfit, keep it casual. Since we're heading into Spring, I would say a nice blouse, a pair of jeans and booties or comfortable heeled sandals if it's warm enough. If you're someone like me who gets cold easily, a jacket or long cardigan is the perfect layering piece for a casual outfit like this.
