East End: Papa Nicks in Riverhead

Star Confectionery, known as Papa Nicks, was bought by the Meras family in 1920.
In the late 1800s it was a convenience store, then it became a candy shop. When the Meras family bought it, they started serving breakfast and lunch.
The shop can be found on the corner of 4 East Main St. and Roanoke Avenue in downtown Riverhead.
