We have been here many times and always enjoy our visit. Menu is different and inventive and not just the same old thing like so many places in central CT. The curly chip fries were a new thing on our most recent visit and they could be the best fries in CT. Sometimes on Sunday they run out of soup... More

I love coming here from time to time. My mom got me hooked when she took me here. The variety and atmosphere of the place is awesome. I had the chicken caesar wrap which was awesome and my mom always gets the Thanksgiving sandwich. Just try it.

This is a great place to hang or meet with friends. It is pretty cozy with comfortable furniture. The food served is pretty good and Iwould recommend it as a good place for lunch!

Since my last visit, I note that the prices seem to be lower, and the menu much better. Also the variety of coffees seems to have expanded and the staff take note of which kind you would prefer. Quick service with a smile! Much better than before!

Stopped for quick bite to eat while visiting Wesleyan University. I had breakfast wrap (scrambled eggs, peppers, onions and cheese) which was great, husband had carnivore sandwich (an "adult" grilled cheese sandwich with steak) and daughter had make your own panini. We all throughly enjoyed the food. You order at front cashier and then they bring the food to you... More

At $9.25 for their "Signature Sandwiches", the quality of the very flavorful steak and cheese sub on a crisp and also flavorful sub roll made me overlook it being a bit light on the steak part. The same price turkey burger had a beautiful charred flavor, was a generous size and both come with the excellent Deep River chips. A... More

Staff members are indifferent, to say the least. And the food is just barely okay. I was visiting friends in Middletown, which I do several times a year. For breakfast, head to O'Rourkes, even if you have to wait in line!

The Eatery at the New England Emporium serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with seat-yourself dining, take-out and catering. We have a unique and comfortable atmosphere with gourmet casual fare. Come and experience a mouth watering Grown Up Grilled Cheese and maybe dig into an Italian Love Affair Crepe for dessert.The Marketplace at the New England Emporium offers specialty food and gift products from over 200 New England vendors. We scoured New England to bring you hand picked specialty items all made in small batches. Pick up some chocolate covered cherries made right here in Connecticut or take home an amazing wood cutting board hand made in Vermont.
