“East & Main is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in town and one of the best in the County. Their menu is just fabulous, with generous sizes, great presentation and, more importantly, delicious. The service has always been excellent and the ambience is perfect. I recommend going for lunch, as it becomes more affordable, but if you want to impress, dinner time is the right choice. Make sure to make a reservation in the high season!”

Restaurant
“Insane baked goods and yummy Italian coffee. Our favs are the smoked salmon/lox breakfast on your choice of freshly made bagels, brie and egg breakfast sandwich and croque madame. Small cafe so be prepared to sit outside or grab and go. Be prepared for a line on the weekends - it's worth the wait!”

Gift Shop
“I love plants! and this place has some unique beauties on display. Some of the plants in our cozy home originated from this studio. They also have some cute planters that make great souvenirs for your time in PEC. If you get hungry during your visit, make sure to check out Idle Wilde a fusion Filipino take out place. They serve amazing unique dishes the soy sauce chicken is a staple. It always fills that empty void in my stomach nicely :)”
