So you’ve loaded up your tote bags with glorious produce, cheese, bread and eggs at the Westhampton Beach Farmers Market and you’re about to head home to cook up a storm. But…maybe…the cook could use a snack, a little pick-me-up before embarking on a home culinary adventure. Or maybe your big meal plans could use a little something special. What to do? While in Westhampton Beach, you’re totally covered!
Hash It Out
Locals know how to start the day right. A choice choice: Corned Beef Hash for breakfast at Eckart’s. Eckart’s Luncheonette at 162 Mill Road (631-288-9491) is purported to offer THE best breakfast and coffee. So give it a try, you might just become a regular and call the place “Red’s,” after its longtime proprietor. Eckart’s has been in business since 1911 and is currently run by the family’s fourth generation of friendly hosts, servers and cooks. Breakfast is served all day, alongside lunch and dinner options. Did we mention their Moon Doggie burger?
Please sir, may I have s’mores?
