I eat ice cream everywhere I go as a travelling salesman - and to me - nothing beats Dr. Mikes Chocolate Lace and Rich Chocolate. End of discussion.

I thought I was slick taking my family near by to dinner and going for ice cream after dinner but there were more slick people than myself. This place was packed. Well orchestrated line on a nice evening. Everyone conversing about what they are going to order or what they have had in the past. This was our first time but well worth the experience.

We love this place, unfortunately we don't get there often enough. It is in such a strange place, the the search is worth it. While the breakfast and lunch items are all really yummy, it's the baked goods that set this place apart. The tarts, the muffins, cakes... Everything we have tried is amazing. We also love the funky decor and the young kids working there are very sweet.

Have been a loyal customer for years. Excellent food....cannot get thisd stuff anywhere else as good as this. Very simple interior so if you are looking for something fancy or upscale then this is not the place. But if Vietnamese food is your choice for the night then this is it

The grape leaves at Lebanese Cuisine are the BEST we have ever had!!! Many of the other dishes, including the hummus, Zaatar (mini "pizza" made with Thyme) and Spinach Pie.
The owner/chef is so impressive- happy, cordial and generous (gave us free tasting of his delicious vegan apps). It is obvious he takes great pride in his food. He graciously accommodates special diets, if you just ask.
While I didn't have time, the market attached to the restaurant looked like it has some different and authentic Lebanese foods. I glanced over and saw lots of desserts and pantry full of packaged foods.
The prices are very fair, though the atmosphere is lacking. Still, I love that you can BYOB and so I don't expect much. Oh, they do offer wine glasses and ice if you just ask.

Whenever we are in Connecticut, we visit the Sycamore at least once. I'm not usually a soda drinker (I kicked the daily diet coke habit!), but Sycamore has amazing root beer served in frosty mugs, so I always order one, and am tempted to order a second. They have a fun menu with lots of great burgers and sandwiches as well as breakfast. I love the curly fries. The servers are always really nice and attentive, and the food comes out quickly and is always hot. The atmosphere is old school and charming, from the counter stools to the little booths and paper placemats on the tables. The price point can't be beat!

I expected more from the #3 Rated restaurant in the area. Not a great selection of entrees besides pizza (Pepe's is a lot better) but the appetizers, cocktails and soup were good. Very attentive staff!

This is not just having lunch —- it’s an *experience*. We had no expectations; just tried a new pizza restaurant. The menu offered different fare from that to which we were accustomed, so I was curious. They offer appetizers, red pizza, white pizza, and a few assorted options for the non-pizza lover. They pride themselves in fresh, farm-to-table toppings on their Artisinal pizza, and they lived up to their promise. I enjoyed a white pizza with goat cheese, mozzarella and spinach drizzled in an olive oil mixture that was delicious beyond words. My husband had a sausage pizza, made with fresh sausage, tomato sauce, and basil and he raved about it! The crust in both was exceptional.
Restaurant ambience was a step above typical for a pizza place but the service went far beyond our expectations.
You’re in for a treat!
