Have you heard? Wave Hill Breads is serving up way more than bread these days. Having recently moved their renowned artisan bakery from Wilton to 30 High Street in Norwalk, owners Margaret Sapir and Mitchell Rapoport launched Wave Hill Breads version 2.0 with a full cafe, serving breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday. This cozy eatery has developed a menu that celebrates local and seasonal ingredients and serves fresh, delicious fare. With WIFI, Java Love coffee, and the smell of freshly baked goods all day long, the Wave Hill Breads Bakery & Cafe is the perfect casual dining spot. Plus, they just won Best of the Gold Coast for Café/Bistro from Moffly Media.
Sure, you’ve seen their pain de campagne or and olive ciabatta at your local market, but it’s not just croissants and French Toast here (although those are both excellent choices). Breakfast offers favorites such as the Ultimate Egg Sandwich -- fluffy scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and fire-roasted Poblano pepper all on a flaky rosemary croissant -- as well as a Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese bialy topped with caramelized onions.
What’s for lunch? How about homemade Tomato Parmesan Soup with WHB Croutons, Grilled Cheese with Poblano Peppers or a truly French Country Ham and Brie on great crusty Ficelle. You can also find Vegan treats such as the homemade lemony Hummus on Ciabatta with Roasted Red Pepper. And I haven’t even gotten to the baked goods.
Whether you crave an authentic French croissant, or a healthy, reasonably-priced meal, Wave Hill Breads Cafe is conveniently located, nestled between My Three Sons, The Garden Cinema, and Saraswatis yoga. Book groups and meetings of any kind are better while eating great food in this comfortable setting. The Cafe also offers delivery to local offices, as well as catering.
