Hartford’s first Guatemalan bakery and restaurant. The bread, the pastries, the food, AND THE DRINKS. Oh my. Don’t even get us started on the ambiance. We’ll take one of everything please.
Love the beer selection. Love the whiskey. Love live music. Love the food. Love the people. LOVE their brunch. The Half Door has a beer passport that requires you to drink a lot of beer (good) and will make you famous (better) as you join their wall of fame.
Red Rock Tavern has been an establishment in Hartford, Connecticut for over 80 years, and taverns don’t last 80 years because they’re just ok. They last 80 years because they’re awesome. Everything about this is place is top notch, just LOOK at that french toast.
Go eat super delicious gastro pub fare in their gorgeously decorated dining room with glittering chandeliers hanging from tin ceilings, exposed brick, and small dining nooks. Or sit on the (seasonally enclosed) patio. Breezy in the summer, central fireplace in the winter.
Who doesn’t love something that’s super good for you, packed with nutrition, and doesn’t taste like soft cardboard? Each bowl is made with honest, healthy ingredients crafted in ways that taste “sinfully delicious,” if they do say so themselves. Order one of their signature bowls, and add one of their boosts like Hangover, or Matcha.
The Russell’s food is so good you want to keep eating until you are in physical pain. They do a phenomenal brunch service with heavenly mimosas, and the bar scene is one of the best if you’re into great music, dancing, and cool people.
Tisane is a tea house, coffee house, martini bar, regular bar, dance club, and restaurant in the West End. Some people consider it their own version of Cheers, but cocktail-centric, with a much cooler and more handsome Norm.
This place really does have it all. A stacked menu with options for everyone, weekly live music, drinks, BRUNCH. Ain’t no party like a SoulBaila party.
