yeah it is great, they have the definitive cinnamon roll- just don't let them nuke it if they offer. I made that mistake once!
also in that general area, we stumbled onto Lakeside Diner, just west of the Merritt Parkway exit for Longridge (maybe highridge? its the southernmost of the two) Stamford exit. If anyone can place this more definitively, please post. On the front., looks like a crummy, jerry built diner, although a couple of Westport weekend baby porsches parked in front might have suggested otherwise. Inside, more spacious than expected and, transformingly, looks out through a huge picture window over a beautiful pond. Obviously a local institution, with excellent blueberry pancakes, and other well cooked breakfast stuff. In the Toms Luncheonette (Brooklyn) quality range.

Re: Lakeside Diner...Never tried it, always drove right
by...maybe Sunday, thanks! It is right next to Exit 34
of Merritt(sp?) Parkway at Long Ridge Rd. in
Stamford/Old Greenwhich, Ct. I went by there twice
today (Sat.), and, fair warning, while it looked busy
enough at 11 A.M., when I drove past at 2:03 P.M. it
had a big "Closed" sign in the window! Could it be that
it's only open for the traditional meal hours and
closed in between?? Some "diner". More news updates
