- Kent Coffee & Chocolate. In Kent, a little town with a population of 2,965, there
is great – you guessed it – coffee and chocolate. For such a small town, you would never expect a store like this to exist and thrive, but there was a line to the door the whole time we were there. I got an iced chai tea latte with two truffles, dubbed the Hawaiian nights and mudslide – both dark chocolate and both delicious.
- Salute. Salute is an Italian Restaurant in Hartford. We ate there for lunch, or lupper (lunch/supper), and every thing was reasonably priced and delicious. I had sweet potato ravioli with a glass of riesling that hit the spot. You might even get lucky enough to see the cast of the current Hartford Stage production if you’ve timed your meal right.
- Pond House Cafe. A quaint restaurant located off a pond in the center of a park in Hartford, CT. We shared a crab and avocado salad with a bacon vinaigrette (mine without bacon of course) and risotto that was amazing. My Mom and I, also shared a mint chocolate chip creme brulee for dessert. I’ve never heard of flavored creme brulee’s before, but this one was definitely worth it. Nothing beats plain original creme brulee, but I was pleasantly surprised of how good it was.
