We have been eating breakfast at The Wooden Spoon since it first opened many years ago. We eat there at least several times a month. The staff is delightful and knows us by name. Food is good . Everyone that we have brought there loves it and asks to go back. It has new ownership now, but we don't see... More

You will need go up and read the specials for yourself. It's cool. Watch all the regulars go right up. The service is great and food is hometown fine but no frills. You will find burgers, dogs, soups and sandwiches. Honestly no need to make a special trip but it's very nice that a place where regulars go is still... More

They only do breakfast and they do it up well. Line out the foor waiting to get a table. Well worth the wait. No credit cards, cash only so hit the atm on the way. Great food.

My husband and I try to get to this local place as often as we can. Go early on the weekend! It's popular with the folks in town and students at UConn. The specials are innovative and wonderful. I love the pancake specials and omelettes; my husband swears by the stuffed French toast and sausage. Love the wait staff. Don't... More

The Wooden Spoon has been a town staple since it opened. They make the best breakfasts of anywhere around the Town of Ashford. Eggs are prepared as ordered every time! Their specials are so good I try them often but love best: pancakes (any kind), waffles, Spooner's corn bread, omelets. My brother loves the corned beef hash with eggs. Lunches... More

Great breakfast. The omelets were wonderful. Good atmosphere. Only negative: if going with a large group call ahead for a larger table.

I've been to the Wooden Spoon for breakfast on a number of occasions -- sometimes just to meet friends, and sometimes for meetings to work on community projects. The food is always good, the service terrific and the price quite reasonable.

I live in Ashford and go here regularly. It is one of the best breakfast and lunch restaurants to which I have ever been. The food is amazing. My personal favorites are the western wrap for breakfast and the chili and cornbread for lunch. Their burgers are also terrific (as is everything else I and my family have eaten there).... More
