Stamford, near the Sheraton
Tawa, even closer than Margot's, for very good Indian food, Kampei, in the same strip center as Tawa, for decent Chinese/Japanese. For breakfast, Bull's Head diner in the same area offers all the usual for breakfast, nothing spectacular, but probably as good as the hotel and a lot cheaper, and there's Liz Sue Bagels there as well, but apart from a tiny table or two outside, it's take-out. If there's ever a next time, stay at the Courtyard by Marriott downtown, where you'll have many more places to choose from, all within easy walking distance.
Margots and Kam Pei are good choices.
if you are heading up to the Merritt the following morning to continue:
1 - if Long Ridge, go just past the Merritt on your left is Lakeside diner. Great pancakes
2 - If High Ridge, just past Burger King on the left is a diner that is also very good; starbucks in the strip mall across the street
Jfood agrees that Liz Su is the best bet for bagels.
Liz Su, Kam Pei and Margots are all in the same 15 store strip mall just north of the sheraton
