weekend getaway at fairfield inn by the beach
Going this weekend to Inn in Fairfield to celebrate husband's birthday. Recs for breakfast/lunch/din? any good bakeries to bring back morning treats? thanks!
Isabel et Vincent on Post road only a couple of minutes away is a great bakery - brioche and croissants will make a nice breakfast on the beach. For other meals, there are tons of options both within fairfield itself and in nearby towns - what kind of food are you looking for? Price range, atmosphere, ethnicity, etc.
Funny, lived here for 47 years and never heard of the Fairfield Inn! Go figure.
Molto, The Gray Goose and Martel are all nice for lunch, although Molto is rather energetic and the Goose can be crowded. If you aren't in a rush I would recommend going a little on the later side, maybe 1:30ish.
Osianna in Fairfield has good meditteranean food, nice and relaxed atmosphere, although some here do complain about the tables being too close together.
Paci in Southport is an excellent Italian restaurant. Pricey, but very good. Just got an excellent review in the NYTimes for what that is worth.
I believe all these places have vegetarian options, and they all have websites with menus listed so you can check them out.
The inn's been there a while; used to be the Seagrape Inn. It doesn't call attention to itself as an inn. Looks more like an apartment building, but the rooms are very nice, if a bit cozy.
I second Isabelle & Vincent for bakery and pastries. They've got a nice alcove with a big table that's perfect for relaxing and reading a paper on a weekend morning.
sibeats' list is good and right on the spot. As for Middle Eastern, there is Layla's Falafel, but that's more of a take-out joint. Safita at 2217 Post Road is a recent addition to Fairfield. I've never been, but it's been getting good reviews.
If you're willing to go a little further afield, there are some excellent locavore and farm-to-table options in Westport.

Go to Safita's on the post road in Fairfield,
Madeline's for lunch or dinner
Wild Rice is good for lunch or dinner
Also try Quattro Pazzi (Paci is GREAT, but much more expensive)
Post Road Tavern Has Wonderful Soups & Salads & Seafood.
I have eaten at all of the above, you won't be disappointed!
