If you want home-style cooking, go to Helen’s. One of my favorite places to get breakfast! They have delicious omelettes, sandwiches, salads, and more! It’s a simple place and I appreciate that. Owners are very friendly – I wish they were still open on Sundays!
I usually get an omelette with some sort of combo of cheese (usually feta), onions, spinach, & tomato. I always ask for my potatoes crispy! And of course you have to have a breakfast meat, both their bacon and sausage are amazing. Sometimes I have to get both. If I’m feeling insatiable, (which is more common than not) I share a short stack of pancakes with whoever I’m with.
I’ve also tried their burgers and they’re good! But it’s homestyle cooking – so don’t expect a five guys burger! Fries and coleslaw that come with it are also enjoyable! DO get their bacon or ham egg & cheeses as well.
I’ve had pizza’s from both Stamford locations, and I haven’t been disappointed. It can take a while for delivery, but that’s to be expected on a Friday/Saturday night. Riko’s Pizza is super thin crust, just like Colony Grill in Stamford/Fairfield/Milford. If you’re familiar with Colony, then you know they are almost the same pie. There are minor differences, but not enough for me to have a CLEAR favorite. They’re both delicious. Riko’s offers thin crust pies with various toppings as well as salads and wings. Haven’t tried any of their wings yet, but below is a list of pizza’s and salad’s I’ve tried and liked!
What else is there to say about Pinkberry? It’s delicious and everyone knows it.
You pick the size, the flavor yogurt (Greek or frozen), and then your toppings. I can’t steer away from my usual chocolate froyo with all chocolate toppings while everyone else seems to go the fruit route. I don’t think I/anyone else I’ve gone with has ever left unsatisfied.
Let me start by saying that whenever I go to Capriccio, I never have a bad meal. Sometimes the service is lacking, but I usually don’t mind because I’m never in a rush & if I’m sitting outside I’m just enjoying the atmosphere. Besides food, I recommend the White Peach Sangria if you like a sweet refreshing drink. Below is a list of what I’ve ordered and enjoyed from Capriccio.
