For the other reviews and the price I assumed the corn beef hash would not be canned. I was wrong. Eggs were over cooked and I was served white soggy toast when I asked for rye. Slow service.

AmyLou: It's about an hour north of Hamden. It's just off the northbound side of rt. 84 in Union, Ct, almost on the Mass border. Google maps says exit 74. Enjoy!
