I'm never disappointed with the food from this awesome little spot! No matter if it's breakfast, lunch or dinner (Wed&Thurs nights), the food is ALWAYS superb and so fresh! They're dinners are all so gourmet and they make everything fresh with all local veggies as well as meats and fish! This place is a real gem!! You won't be disappointed... More

I was very disappointed - I recently met the new owner – she needs a lesson on good customer service. I ordered a few wraps and at checkout noticed that the prices went up to $8.99. Who charges 8.99 for a wrap in Ashford??? With potato chips - not even fries! Oh well, I thought they must be great. See... More

The best omelet I've had since I've been in CT! I had the spinach and feta egg whites with sliced tomatoes and a side of fresh Canadian Bacon. The restaurant isn't fancy but simple and clean.

Quick and friendly service, clean and home design, great food!Prices are modest! We live in walking distance, but don't go out a lot. The Wooden Spoon is a nice reward for us.

We happened upon this spot while driving around the area and we were so glad we did. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting and the service was friendly and efficient. I ordered the pastrami Reuben and it came out hot, melty and delicious. The accompanying fries were superbly cooked and also hot, hot, hot. My partner ordered the foot-long hot... More

This past Wednesday night, my husband and I received a gift in more ways than one- dinner at The Wooden Spoon. I am always ready for supper out, but our neck of the woods offers few choices that I want to revisit. Either the prices are astronomical (think Still River or the Buttery), or food that isn't as good as... More

For more than 10 years we have been going to the Wooden Spoon for breakfast on most Saturdays and Sundays. The food is excellent and the waitresses seem to enjoy working there and helping customers. The new owners have tried to keep up the same style with a few instances of more British food.

We live 25 minutes from here but had never heard of it until we camped recently at a nearby campground. We drove past it several times but didn't really give it a thought. When our son camped at the campground too, he noticed the restaurant and decided to try it. He came back RAVING about the raspberry stuffed French toast,... More

This restaurant is worth searching out -- but beware there might just be lines at the door on weekends. Our group of 4 (and then another visit with 8) was able to get seating together during the week without any problem. The staff are very accommodating and coffee and tea refills are offered freely. The omelets I've ordered have come... More
