After the Hike: Local Favorites

OTTO The pizza and salads are delicious. I continue to struggle with the general attitude of "too cool" to serve you that Jonathan's restaurant's consistently serve up.
Simon's Marketplace Awesome service & sandwiches. Has a nice bar like seating that faces Main Street
17 Main St, Chester CT — (860) 526-8984
Whistle Stop Cafe watch out for Austin's Wrangler omelette... Sooo good, but the horseradish cheese is not for the faint of heart!
Deep River Pizza taco pizza is epic, by far all their pizzas are some of the best ive had in CT or anywhere, likely biases to their amazing crusts and side dishes.
160 Main St, Deep River CT — (860) 526-1348
Two Wrasslin Cats fantastic food,coffee and staff!
374 Town St, East Haddam CT — (860) 891-8446
Gelston House Fabulous food and service. Lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend this place
8 Main St, East Haddam CT — (866) 497-6150
Village Pizza The calamari is awesome!
26 Falls Rd, Moodus CT — (860) 873-1416
The Griswold Inn This is the oldest continuously-run tavern in the US. Founded in the late 1700s, it has been under the stewardship of only 6 families & during Prohibition local yachtsmen came for the entertainment.
36 Main St, Essex CT — (860) 767-1776
Olive Oyl's Fresh, gourmet foods at an awesome price. Fresh ground espresso and artisanal rarities make this a unique food destination in the idyllic riverside village of Essex.
77 Main St, Essex CT — (860) 767-4909
Creative Cooking: A New Orleans Restaurant Gin & Tonic comes in a pint glass! And Beefeater is their house gin…nice!
Cuckoo’s Nest Mexican Food Queso dip is nacho cheese and pico de gallo is crap. Margaritas were decent at least.
Mindy K's Deli The menu is awesome and colorful!
Pasta Vita Chicken piccata and shepherds pie are the two best meals here. Go for the bread pudding if you're feeling the extra sweet tooth!
225 Elm St, Old Saybrook CT — (860) 395-1452
Turtle Cafe Best spot for breakfast and lunch worth the trip
4 Westbrook Pl, Westbrook CT — (860) 399-1799
Cristy's Restaurant Great food and good prices too
Luigi's Restaurant Great Italian food!
Pizza Palace Pizza & onion rings are great.
Mystic Market Their sandwiches are fabulous. Will definitely be back to try their soups and cold salads.
