Going to Goodspeed in East Haddam

I am going down Route 9 from West Hartford to East Haddam. I need a place to stop for lunch tomorrow. Any ideas?

  1. What type of food are you looking for? There are some good places in Middletown.
    In Tylerville (right before you go over the Goodspeed bridge) there is a decent
    spot called The Cooking Company. They have prepared foods in cases, they also
    make sandwiches and wraps to order. I love their fresh squeezed lemonade
    in the summer.

      Thanks for the trip. I had a late lunch there. I had a turkey cheese quesadilla and it was delicious.

        Also Luce, ORourke's Diner, Typhoon, etc. For an offbeat ethnic hole in the wall place, try Iguanas Ranas, Pho Mai or Udupi Bhavan.

          Thanks for all your recommendations. I'll try some of them the next time I'm in the neighborhood.

      2. Should have also mentioned to call ahead, East Haddam has 77% without power,
        and a lot of towns south of Middletown are in the same boat.

          Thanks for the tip. Goodspeed had a generator, thank goodness.
