Restaurants

Tata's Restaurant

Caribbean Cuisine. 104 Quinnipiac St. 203-294-4303

All time favorites Back to Top

Restaurants

Vinny's Deli

You would be hard pressed to leave this town without stopping by Vinny's. Make sure you have plenty of time to look through their 60+ selection of subs/sandwiches. Everything is homemade (except for the paper they wrap the sub with!) 567 Center St. 203-265-7288

Mr. D's

It's not a restaurant. It's a candy shop...a toy store....a cupcake shop...and an ice cream shop. They have coffee...smoothies...even the latest West Coast rage-Bubble Tea - can be found here. Mr. D's offers almost every delicious treat you can conjure up. They're not even done yet. New offerings to come (it's a secret.) So save a little room and make a stop at Mr. D's (next to Half Moon Cafe) on your way back to the B&B. You won't be disappointed. 50 North Main St. 203-626-5406

Wentworth's Home Made Ice Cream
