Little City Pizza

Reviewed By MStangle - San Diego, CA

We received great service. The pizza was big! (we ordered a medium and it looked like a large!) Being pizza aficionados, we didn't have a problem with that! Our only complaint would be that Little City totally lacks atmosphere...but understandably they keep many local families very happy!

Starbucks

Reviewed By MimiSmith - West Simsbury, Connecticut

Always a fun place. Seating is limited, it's a smaller Starbucks but it's in an interesting little strip mall so you can wander after coffee.

The hot apple cider is outstanding!!! I don't know why they don't advertise it more. Really delicious!

Good place to sit, sip and relax. Good service, fun staff.

This restaurant has a wonderful setting alongside a waterfall....housed in what was originally a 1600's lumber mill and later on a grist mill.
Food was excellent from the presentation to the quality and uniqueness.
Wait staff very attentive and pricing was moderate and reasonable

New York strip was tender and flavorful...short ribs superb

The food is always good just do not expect the menu to change. The menu has been exactly the same for years and years. But the Duck, trout and other dishes are great.

Reviewed By 79porsche911sc - Simsbury, Connecticut

I've been going to this restaurant for years. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is comfortable. Abigails is set into a historic Inn called the Pettibone Tavern which has local significance. The restaurant is conveniently located on RT 10 in Simsbury and is worth a try

Meadow Asian Cuisine

Reviewed By jer b - Bristol, Connecticut

This is a very elegant Asian restaurant which serves a very nice selection of Asian food choices. There are wonderful lunch specials, which are fairly large for lunch proportions. I started with the octopus sushi and it was wonderful - clean and fresh. The chicken and broccoli lunch special featured: the entree, a rice, an appetizer and a soup. Very reasonably priced for what you received. Everything was nicely prepared and presentation was quite nice also. Definitely a go to for lunch. Good parking available.

Harvest Cafe Bakery

Reviewed By Juleep5 - Simsbury, Connecticut

We've been going to the Harvest Cafe for years but this weekend for the first time I took a quiche home. It was pricy at $20 but well worth it. We got several full meals out of it and it was honestly the best quiche I ever tasted.

Plan B at One-Way Fare

Good times, made locally. So we had this idea. That food can bring people together in a bunch of different ways. Neighbors with neighbors. Locals with local ingredients. And bourbon lovers with bourbons worth loving. In 2006, our idea became; b Restaurants. People come here to be here. For good beer. Cool surroundings. And one burger to rule them all. Gathering is what we do. b Restaurants is where we do it.

Reviewed By john D - Westfield, Massachusetts

Sat at the bar early on Sunday, ordered a beer for me and wine for the wife while we looked over the menu. I wanted to get one of there great burgers but we got side tracked by the appies. So we settled on the deep fried firecracker cauliflower with sweet chili sauce, Super food salad and the cheese burger sliders. All were very good. The cauliflower was lightly battered and fried just right no hint of grease at all, the chili sauce had just a touch of heat. The dressing on the super food salad was billed as a spicy vinaigrette that was done well with just enough on the salad. The sliders were cooked perfectly still juicy with no trace of pink, they come with parm cheese fries that were tasty also. While trying to pick out a bourbon the bartender came over with two samples of his favorites. We always seem to be very comfortable when we go there and this was the first time we didn't get just a burger and we still came away happy !
