Best oven roasted pizza and fresh salads! And the daily specials are always a great choice! The art is good and they have a terrific book selection. Great coffee and chai too!

While on business, I grabbed lunch with some colleagues at this restaurant. It had a very "Seattle" feel to it, best described as trendy/hipster. The menu was basic and the sandwich I ordered was ok. Nice atmosphere, good for conversations.

Central meeting place, just off the town square. Nice food. Nice people. Mostly organic dishes. Worth a visit.

Revelations has an artistic ambience. Very relaxing and cozy. The staff was very friendly. The food was great if you are vegan or vegetarian.

Heard of this place for some time a very unique refreshing atmosphere and killer pizza. The hours are tough for those who live out of town as they are only open for lunch and one night a week. Worth the wait.

Now a Fairfield institution, this venerable book store and music venue keeps shortening its hours of operation. Lively and decorative surroundings with a pleasing storefront and outdoor dining, Revelations is often the social center of the Friday Artwalk. Jazz (on most Friday nights) is worth the price of admission. They've closed the upstairs meeting room space but still allow you... More

My wife and I had the Greek Pizza which was delicious. In times past we have had sandwiches and soup which was also quite tasty.

Known locally as "Revs" it's a gathering place fur the free wifi hangout crowd. Food can be good. Bigger menu. Not as great as it once was.

I gave this five stars not because any one thing was superlative, but the whole was unique and colorful. Revelations is a cafe in a book store, and besides being surrounded by books the decor was fabulous, including original artworks, with the tables set throughout in little nooks and friendly gatherings. The food was fresh-made with some ingredients from a... More
