We like to go to Dog Lane Cafe before Connecticut Repertory Theater shows. Food is good quality and comes quickly. I wish they had fries instead of chips with the sandwiches. Check out the specials - they are creative and tasty

Wonderful atmosphere, good food and service. Thank you. There is a lot of choice on the menu. I particularly appreciated a range of good salads which could be enhanced with shrimp or chicken or crab cakes. The servers were especially helpful and nice.
