This is a super little convenient gem in the heart of Ridgefield. Perfect for a quick egg sandwich and a cup of coffee. Super reasonably priced.

It’s crazy crowded on the weekends, long waits but once you sit down, you get why. The food is always great and the service is friendly and once they get to know you, they don’t forget. Go and enjoy!
