This food truck serves LITERALLY my favorite fish tacos/burritos on the island AND its walking distance from the apartment, which for LI is a miracle. Its definitely a tad expensive for a food truck but the quality is never lacking and the demand can sometimes be crazy. If you drive over, hop on your car, drink some Mexican soda while you munch on tacos ... ahhhh

This place is tantalizing, pure sweet tooth satisfaction. There are around 10 desert spots in Port Jefferson but Kilwin's is easily my favorite. Original recipe Ice Cream, hand-paddled fudge, Kettle cooked corns and brittles, hand-dipped confections, and gourmet chocolates. I also stop by every-time I need a hot chocolate.

Donuts that are out of this world. This premium Donut Shop featuring jumbo fluffy donuts with a focus on "over the top" ingredients and flavors, some will make you salivate and others will make you cringe. This place is super cute and has a place for board games in the back. If you decide to visit go BEFORE NOON so that you get the donuts fresh, if you go afterwards you risk disappointment.

Do you want Beer, Bourbon, Barbecue and live music. THIS PLACE ! Its the home of sumptuous southern cuisine, soul-scraping Rhythm and Blues as if your walking in Memphis.

Sweet or Savory... that is the question. Maureen's Kitchen is an indisputable Long Island classic that will hopefully stay open forever. Have some time to spare because there will always be a wait, and its part of the experience to meet some of the other customers (also cash only). The place is homey, the staff is warm and the portions are generous. A specials board shows off their latest dishes which change on an almost daily basis.

When its cold/rainy and you need something warm to hug your insides, Slurp will deliver. This ramen spot is very popular with the the large Asian exchange student community at Stony Brook University which means that it must be good. Its vibrant and fun and can definitely get packed and loud but once you start downing your broth it all fades into the background.

Victorian tearoom serving three-tiered full Afternoon Tea service and lunch. Frilly, fun and undeniably frou-frou decor with carefully crafted treats and sweets on trays and tiers. If you like flowers, tea and a silly good time -- you'll love it. You can spend time trying ridiculous hats that would make women attending the Kentucky derby jealous. Reservations highly encouraged. I have to say the quality of the food come waves.

Although LI is traditionally very Italian, it does have its diversity. This is where all the Korean exchange students at Stony Brook University come to get a taste of home. Its both intimate and festive. It has some of the more uncommon Korean food options on the menu (jajangmien, jumpong) & its surrounded by other Korean restaurants (all the owners are friends) so you can grab bubble tea after downing huge amounts of BBQ meat.

This is the home of LI's premier local beer. The beers try to incorporate Patchogue's dockside lifestyle with flavorings that include local oyster shells, beach plums, and seaweed. Also, you can watch the brewing firsthand in this building while listening to some cool music, munching on burgers or slurping on some oysters. This place can get loud and rowdy especially so its perfect if you are looking for some exciting summertime vibes.

Local Exploration
Hidden gem tucked away in a cosy neighborhood. This trail offers a beautiful sunrise/sunset hour picnic spot. It's a calming scenic sandy walk with the occasional dog print tracks meandering across the ground. Once you make it around the cove to the sand dunes at the end you will enjoy a stunning view of the LI sound. The shortfall is that there are only six parking spots in the area and the police are very diligent.

The Thomas Kinkade art gallery has been a staple in downtown Port Jefferson for years. This artist's work focuses on detailed landscapes, whimsical disney scenes, justice league and star wars art. Its always fun to stop by to see if anything new is hanging inside and what themes the artist is moving to next. Linda is very knowledgable and can tell you the stories behind the paintings.

This is the closest local North Shore beach (read pebbly). It's beautiful with gorgeous sunsets & good fishing pier. The lifeguards are very attentive and it is very family friendly and not jam packed busy even in peak summer months. The concession stand turns into a music venue later in the evenings with live music, dancing and cocktails (summer). To park here there is a fee.
