This Mystic-based eatery and café also has a Westport location that is great for grab-and-go sandwiches and salads as well as frozen prepared foods. They have a ton of healthy options perfect for road trips, beach picnics, or lunch on-the-go!
I can’t believe it took me so long to try this ladies-who-lunch hotspot because it really is fantastic. They serve delicious breakfast and lunch options and have a ton of baked goods like delicious, buttery chocolate chip cookies, and mini cupcakes for the kiddos. I highly recommend the buddha bowl, a healthy lunch option that is filling and flavorful. And I’ve heard that the breakfast burrito is the best in town!
The Granola Bar
The Westport location is my favorite but The Granola Bar, a modern-day diner, has a restaurant on Greenwich Ave and a to-go café in Stamford. My order is the avocado toast topped with buffalo cauliflower, the (new) burger, and the cashew yogurt parfait. It’s great for kids too!
Little Beet Table
When I heard that one of my favorite NYC restaurants was opening on Greenwich Ave, I got so excited and tried it right away. The food is phenomenal but just a heads up that they seem to still be working out the kinks in their service. My personal favorite things to order include the kale and cucumber cocktail (made with tequila), the sheep’s milk ricotta, the crispy spirulina rice bowl, and the chili-glazed octopus.
Turning Point Coffee Roasters
When this coffee shop opened just minutes from my house, I was so excited to try it out. Since then I’ve frequented it almost every day and have become friends with the owner because I’m there so often. They source really amazing coffees and teas and have a small but wonderful selection of food. My go-to is the quinoa bowl and a matcha latté with oat milk.
Spotted Horse Tavern
Whenever I meet a girlfriend in Westport for lunch, I pop into the Spotted Horse for the Chinese chicken chopped salad. It’s one of those always-there-for-you type of restaurants. It’s not the best food in Westport but it’s always a solid choice. It’s also really cozy in the winter with a big fireplace.
