Part museum, part café, part tourist attraction, part library, part non-profit? It’s hard to pin down what Grace Farms is exactly but it’s a beautiful property with a stunning café encased in glass. It’s modern and cool, fun to walk around, and great to work in. I try to make it out there at least once a month to work in the library followed by lunch. On weekends, it’s fun to bring kids here to just hang out or for one of their art classes.
She La La
This is my go-to spot if I’m looking for a gift for a friend. They monogram pretty much anything you want and have great gifty items like mugs, picture frames, and home decor pieces. They also carry a cute selection of kid and baby gifts.
Rosie The Stump Boss
Dina is a mom of 3 who left her corporate job to start a stump grinding business. She is badass and SO good at what she does. If you’re looking to get rid of stumps, I can’t recommend her more highly.
Take a tour of one of the coolest architectural features in Fairfield County. Be sure to buy tickets ahead of time for a guided tour or if you’d rather go on your own, buy a ticket for a Sunday to self-guide. This is more of an adult activity but kids over 10 are welcome!
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!
