  • 1. Guilford Bistro and Grille Cafe

    On the corner of Boston Post Road and Church St. is a delightful cafe where fine sandwiches, light and full Italian-influenced fare, is served for lunch and dinner.

    You can split many appetizers as each portion is enough for a light dinner. Scallops and mixed greens is a great choice. so is the caesar salad, where you can add chicken or shrimp.

    Their tilapia is one of my personal favorites for dinner.

    For lunch, sandwiches are served with a nice pasta salad.

    You'll have to bring your own alcohol, though. They do setups.

  • 2. Whitifeld's on the Green

    Several restaurants have been in this choice location with its views of the Green and its unmatched opportunities for people watching. Thus far, Whitfield's is the best of the restaurants.

  • 3. Nick and Tony's Apizza

    This is the place to get pizza or any other traditional Italian dish. This is THE local Italian restaurant, and the service and cooking will remind you of a trattoria in Italy.

    Shrimp scampi is superb, as is the spaghetti with red clam sauce. His marinara sauce is superb.

    Try the clams casino pizza with fresh clams. He'll garnish this pie with lemon slices- an interesting touch. The crust is thin, the clams predominant- a great pizza.

  • 4. Ballou's Wine Bar
    Ballou's Restaurant & Wine Bar, Guilford, Connecticut

    if you are in the mood for a light lunch or dinner and love wine, this is the place to go. On a clear warm day or night, you can wine and dine al fresco on their patio.

  • 5. The Stone House Restaurant
    The Stone House Restaurant, Guilford, Connecticut

    Restaurant on the waterfront, overlooking the harbor. Eat in the romantic, fireplace-equipped bar and enjoy the bar fare, which includes such delights as a shellfish pan roast and mussels steamed in a saffron broth.

    The dining room has fine seafood as well.

  • 6. Bishop's Orchards
    Bishop's Orchards, Guilford, Connecticut

    Guilford is fortunate to have such a well-stocked, complete farmers market. Fresh fruits and vegetables are available here daily, as well as some meats, lots of dairy products, breads, and Bishop's own fine apple and fruit wines. You might also be able to sample some unusual offerings here. Fall is a great time to visit.

  • 7. Guilford Food Center

    Go here for fresh meats, or to grab a sandwich that you can eat on the Green, across the street. It's a small supermarket with a full service butcher. The deli counter makes overstuffed sandwiches and roll-ups. Service is quick and friendly.

  • 8. Guilford Train Station- Shore Line East

    Shore Line East now runs trains daily and weekends. Trains in either direction stop at Guilford. It's a great way for Guilford residents to go into New York for a day trip.
