Poetic Breakfast, Literary Lunches, Daily Specials
I've stopped here for several breakfasts and lunches. Every time, I have someone say Hi and proceed to hand me a menu and not rush when I'm reading the Specials board.

Hopping side of the road donut shop in little Wallingford makes racks of donuts to entice. However after sampling old fashioned cinnamon sugar and glazed raised donut, I would advise going straight to the jelly. A thin crispy layer drenched in powdered sugar surrounds a fluffy tasty raised donut and delicious strawberry jelly. Absolutely Divine!! Not to be missed!

Had lunch during a recent day trip to Wesleyen University. The atmosphere is urban/industrial and is family and kid friendly. We went in expecting typical pizza shop fare, but found a complete Italian menu with something for every appetite. The food was delicious and the portions are huge.

I love Lino's they have a small grocery area but they prepare any stuffed breads or meals for as little as 2 to 200 people . We have ordered meatloaf , pork chops , pot roast mashed potatoes . And olive tray ... All are excellent they sell fresh rolls and bread daily and pastries from new haven .. They carry all boars head cold cuts and the best part is you can call an order ahead to pick them up . Breakfast sandwiches grinders lots of olives etc . Staff is always friendly and helpful . All of their meats are great as well . M-S lunch and dinner are busy times but worth the wait .. Enjoy thanks Chris Cross

This is a location that you see in movies, you can walk in and your standard order is being processed. They remember what you get and it is served up and ready in a blink. The staff is fantastic & quick. I look forward to seeing The staff and enjoyment of good coffee & donut.

Memorial Day...of course the lines were exceptionally long, but everyone was in a good mood and the lines went fast. The soft serve is creamy and delicious "real" ice cream, and the Flurries are wonderful. The staff is efficient and friendly. A perfect end to a summery day

Outrageous Hickory Smoked BBQ Joint and hot rod food truck. Real Pit, state of the art Smokehouse.
Went here with my father when they moved into their current location as I had never been to the other one. Can defusay I was missing out. They have an outstanding pulled pork sandwich. Great sauce, tender everything you expect from amazing BBQ. The staff is pleasant and friendly. Well worth the visit will definitely be returning!!!

FIRE AT THE RIDGE & Ridgeside Tavern Mountain-side fare heating up the Connecticut food scene The centerpiece of the dining experience at Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort in Middlefield, CT will be the upscale-casual dining restaurant "Fire at The Ridge". Named for the passion that Powder Ridge inspires in all of us for our love of sports, food, and fun. Fire at the Ridge aims to be an escape for diners, offering private dining rooms and breathtaking views of the mountain from the upper-levels of the newly renovated 20,000 square foot base lodge. Rustic booths, crackling bon fires and the aroma of fine fare will set the mood for locals and travelers alike to enjoy the handcrafted dishes by Executive Chef Kevin Cottle. Inspired by native New England flavors and locally-sourced ingredients, Fire at the Ridge is a destination restaurant tucked away in the hills of Middlefield. "That's what makes Fire at the Ridge so unique," says Chef Cottle. "We're providing guests with a sophisticated yet approachable experience in a relaxed and familiar setting." Kevin, Well-known in the Connecticut food scene and for his appearances on Hell's Kitchen and Food Network is returning to his Cape Cod roots, "My goal is to guide a guest through a natural progression of flavors and textures using locally-grown products. It should be a simple experience, never over-barring or over-complicated." In addition to Fire at the Ridge, the newly renovated lodge will be home to The Ridgeside Tavern. Locals have long known the bar at Powder Ridge to be the place to meet up with friends and for creating new friendships that last a lifetime. The Ridgeside Tavern is Chef's Kevin Cottles twist on old Colonial Taverns. Kevin, a native of Plymouth, MA will bring back New England classics with updated twist. The Tavern will serve locally-brewed beers and craft cocktails. The third leg of the restaurant stool is the company's event business. Custom designed private and catered events for every size including corporate meetings, weddings, team building, dining parties, and seminars. "We didn't want Powder Ridge to just be about catering to skiers and boarders on the mountain," comments CEO Sean Hayes. "We want to create an experience the whole family can enjoy." In addition, the company will host public events such as music festivals, racing competitions, wine tastings and cooking classes.
We were excited to try Fire at the Ridge because we had heard that the restaurant wanted to get locals to support their efforts to create a new favorite restaurant in the area. The restaurant is located at the base of Powder Ridge Ski Resort in Middlefield, CT and we visited them on a weekend night. The restaurant is trying hard to improve their image, but it fell short in our eyes. Food was average. Service was average. Nothing that would make us want to come back. We can check this off our list of places to try.

One of the two best places on rt.5 to stop and have breakfast or lunch. Between Ricks and Dads you can't go wrong. You try them once and you'll go back again and again.

The eggplant grinder is spectacular!! Good food, good price, what's not to like? Family of 4 for takeout for less than $60!
