I probably made the wrong choice in having the Raspberry Fields sandwich. My colleague liked the salad he had so I think the rest of the menu is probably good. Quick service. Small, but cozy.

I've never seen anyone with a dog there before. But, you can always call them and say you are traveling with your dog. 203-264-9190. I'm sure they'll accommodate you and your dog.
