Go there for lunch and stock up. Sandwiches are full of fresh veggies and served with green salad with a light mustard dressing. Baguette, cheese cake, and biscoti to take home.

Great place for breakfast, lots to choose from. The eggs benedict were done perfectly, the egg whites and corned beef hash was delish. Will return on our next trip across the Sound.

Enjoyed the food but Waitress was not pleasant and seemed to busy to service us, even though it wasn’t that busy??

I wish we lived closer. We come to the area once a month to bring our son for a day long medical treatment. Every time we come to Sono Harbor Cafe for breakfast. The cappuccino and the food are delicious and the people are always...friendly. Today Pablo was exceptionally helpful—ensuring our cappuccinos were hot enough and that the omelette was made with egg whites (hard to believe because it tasted so good). Thank you again. Until next month ....More

Have been for breakfast so many times. Eat in or takeout. Have often picked up sandwiches to go to take out on the boat! Plenty of parking in the rear of the building. Everything is made to order and doesn't take too long! Menu specials...which we've tried and were never disappointed. The staff is friendly and welcoming, always! To me, it appears to be closed, as it looks dark inside on a sunny day, but it's not! It's open!More

Lovely atmosphere, delightful staff and great food and coffee. If I was a local, I’d be a regular. The poached eggs were perfect and the breakfast sausage had a nice peppery kick.

We bring our son to Darien every month for a medical treatment and we’ve tried every breakfast place within a ten mile radius. Today we found the best one!!!! Here’s why: (1) perfect illy cappuccino; (2) delicous food (eggs, homefries, and blueberry pancakes); (3) easy...free parking behind the building; (4) great ambiance and vibe; (5) and super friendly and accommodating staff (seriously unfrazzled and kind about any request we made.). This should be #1 ranked!!!!More

Standard brunch items Plus a bakery selection to top it off. Bagels and lox, black coffee and a slice of coffee cake - a decent way to start the day.

I had brunch here today. Eggs and pancakes were very good. The place was a little noisy and crowded but we got seated virtually immediately. Service was prompt and friendly. Sort of a cool vibe with a lot of good looking customers :) but I...was there too, so not everyone was good looking! I'd go back for lunch. More of a cafe/bar than a "deli" in a good way. Lots of variety on the menu. I'd recommend it!More

High quality food. Always very fresh fruits and vegetables whether you have breakfast or lunch. I have loved each dish I have had. Nice atmosphere with exposed brick walls on the Norwalk Harbor. Servers have been pleasant and they dont rush you out either. I...refer alot of people here and they all appreciate the recommendation.More

We were not disappointed when we stopped for breakfast. The food and coffee were great. It’s a nice little spot with parking in the back. We didn’t have the special although it sounded great. The coffee mugs were great and the staff is very friendly....This place was CLEAN. The counter kept filling up with guests as we sat and ate.More

Some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had. I went for the banana and nut. Fluffy and delicious. Great place in South Norwalk. Very relaxed and friendly. Highly recommend.

We were just looking for some breakfast, nothing fancy and literally stumbled on this place. It's small but the service was good, the food was very good and the prices were great!

Looking for breakfast... SoNo was close to the hotel we are staying at. Best breakfast I've had in awhile. Fairly priced, good was tasty. Coffee was great. Service was spot on. And friendly too. I hope to go back while we are here....
