As reviewed before, the Breakfast is fantastic. There homemade corned beef hash is out of this world. Lunch is very good also. The staff is always friendly.

A Maine staple near the I-95 intersection in Fairfield is the Purple Cow, locally known for its plentiful breakfast entrees and a wide variety of toppings served on their 12" diameter pancakes. And, here was the problem with our meals. Those enormous, thick pancakes need...More
