3. Main Street Haverstraw

Most of the culinary spots are on or just off Main Street. You’ll find a mix of Latino fare like La Cascada (35 Main Street), Tacos Marianita (10 West Street), and Empanadas Monumental (43 Main Street), but also Lucas Candies (6 Main Street),  the oldest chocolaterie in New York State located inside a wonderfully vintage shop replete with tin ceilings, tiled floors, an old elevator made by the Burwak Elevator Co., and an old-school cash register. Lucas Candies has been making chocolate here since 1896 and remains family run for the fourth generation.
