If you’re spending a couple of days down the Shore, the last thing you want to do is waste precious time running errands. Finding places where you can check two boxes, like getting a meal and some needed weekend groceries, can help you maximize your ability to grab your board and catch those perfect waves between high and low tide. Lovelandtown is one of those spots. Outside, you can get a classic cold lobster roll piled high with lobster meat, fresh herbs, capers, and a squeeze of lemon from a 1955 Chevy truck that’s outfitted with a kitchen. And inside, the small grocery store has a great coffee bar and a deli/butcher that offers fantastic hot and cold sandwiches to go, along with all the essentials to stock your fridge with for the next few days.
