How to Spend a Perfect Saturday in Larchmont

With attractions, boutiques, and restaurants galore, there’s so much to do in Westchester County’s walkable village.

At just 1.1 square miles in area, Larchmont is tiny — particularly next to neighboring New Rochelle, more than 10 times its size — yet the offerings are abundant, much like the Sound that laps its shores. There’s no real need for wheels to spend a day here; just a good pair of kicks and a healthy dose of get-up-and-go attitude are all that’s required to enjoy the vibrant shops, eateries, culture, and coast of this quaint, compact, and bountiful little village. What are you waiting for? Head to Westchester and enjoy your Saturday in Larchmont.

8 a.m. – Start your day at Sunshine Coffee Roasters

If you’re like us and your morning requires a cup of coffee, pop into Sunshine Coffee Roasters (1932 Palmer Ave.; 914.341.1899), where beans are roasted onsite and brewing begins by dawn.

10 a.m. – Shop in the heart of Larchmont

It’s time to shop, and Larchmont’s four intersecting, dynamic retail thoroughfares make it way too easy. Head to the village central for hot designer threads from the always on-point Palmer & Purchase (1905 Palmer Ave.; 914.315.1434) or an on-trend new outfit from Love Bella (1907 Palmer Ave.; 914.630.2602). If you’re looking for something truly unique, The Makers New York (132 Larchmont Ave) is a must-visit for fashionable pieces.

12 p.m. – Take your pick of lunch spots

Lunch at local institution Stan’z Café (26 Chatsworth Ave.; 914.833.9760) is never a miss, with an inventive, upmarket take on salads and sammies, and be sure to dip your paper straw into an all-natural, house-made soda. Apiary (157 Larchmont Ave.; 914.834.3572) is another solid spot for salads and paninis, like the one with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto, though you could also splurge on a lobster roll.
