Long Weekend Getaway

My husband and I just had the best super long weekend out on Long Island! Ahh relaxation, good food and even better times! We spent time walking around several of the towns, going to a vineyard and wine tasting, picking berries and peaches from local farms, eating great food and of course some relaxing time swimming and reading.

 

Annie's Organic Cafe & Market

Annie's Organic Cafe & Market

There is a really cute place in Southampton called Annie’s Organic Cafe & Market. It is the kind of cafe that you order at the bar and they bring you your food. I was really happy there; we ended up visiting twice. The menu was pretty limited but we found some really yummy choices. There is food for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike. For lunch, Michael and I both loved the BBQ seitan with caramelized onions served on a organic sourdough roll. It was really filling and quite the treat. They also have a great juice selection, so of course we went for our good old stand-by Green Juice 🙂 There is a little backyard patio that was an enjoyable place to eat our meal. I love eating outside!

The market was small but had some really great products! It was so nice and refreshing to find a place carrying organic produce and products to stock up on.

If you are in the area Annie’s is definitely worth checking out.

East Hampton Point Restaurant

East Hampton Point Restaurant

One night we had dinner at the East Hampton Point which was mostly about the view. The food was good but we spent most of our time gazing out at the water and the sunset. I would definitely recommend this place for a romantic meal. There is a bar area, a more casual restaurant as well as a more formal side. They are right next to each other, and as far as I could tell only the menus differ. We ate at the “formal” side, although it still had a casual feel that we enjoyed.

We went to one of the most enjoyable vineyards ever on our trip, Sherwood House Vineyards. The outdoor tasting room is set in the middle of the gorgeous vineyard. Everything is so relaxed and the wines (especially the whites) were good. I actually loved the whites so much our wonderful server gave me two other ones to try on top of our tasting! So much fun! We were able to hang out for a while drinking wine in the gorgeous vineyard in the sun. Not a bad way to pass an afternoon 🙂 Loved it!! Everyone was super friendly and happy to be there.

I would really recommend taking a trip out there. There are also many other vineyards super close by, so make a day out of it!

farmstand

We were also lucky enough to pick beautiful summer fruit on 2 days of our trip. The first stop was Hank’s Farmstand in Southampton. We picked delicious blackberries and my favorite, raspberries! I was in total heaven munching on them – they were so good!! There is also something so special about being able to pick them yourself and having them so fresh! Deeelish!

Peaches

The next day we went to Wickhams Fruit Farm. You can pick blueberries, blackberries and peaches. We picked a big bag of luscious, juicy peaches! mmmm!! So fun!
