Charming place in Westport with outdoor seating. A few positive reasons for coming Sono Bakery at WestPort instead of the Norwalk location are as follows: 1) Lots of inside seating - larger space 2) Hooks to hang your bags under the counter 3) Friendly Staff 4) Power Outlets to change you electrical devices 5) WiFi!!! - Norwalk is behind the...

I think it has potential to be a breakfast spot. Bakery items are very good. Breakfast is a little pricier than most places for not what you would expect for that price. Has enough seats and a block off downtown. Real busy, now with construction of old Y site, but looks like will survive.

The food choices were varied and interesting, and our orders arrived hot and beyond expectations. The portions are generous but not over the top. The friendly and helpful waitresses did all they could to make us feel comfortable. We loved the atmosphere here and will definitely return when we are in town.

Sono Baking Co. has what seems like endless delicious options - from simple and fresh breakfast options, to amazing cookies and sweets, to awesome breads. Their service is quick, the staff is pleasant and helpful, and the prices are quite reasonable. It's hard to drive by and not stop so don't - you won't regret it!

Bread! Pastries! Cakes and Cookies! Baked fresh everyday. I buy the cranberry bread every week and also the bread with the olives. Makes very good sandwiches. They have small menu for breakfast and lunch but every dish is tasty.

Many of us thought it would be difficult to match Java, the coffee place that pre-dated Sono in this convenient place downtown. Sono Bakery has done it, surpassing its predecessor some how with a more comfortable and relaxed seating arrangement, a better and less precious breakfast menu, and decent though not stellar coffee. For some reason Sono Bakery in Norwalk... More
