Where is Westport?

Westport is a picturesque town on Connecticut's coastline, only a little over 1 hour away from Manhattan on Metro North's New Haven Line.

Why come to Westport?

Why, for the food, of course.

Start your day neatly at Neat.

With a big ol' brekkie board and perfectly brewed flat white.

Or get some egg soufflés on house-made biscuits...

Eggs, bacon, bread, how bad could that be?

Or if you want something sweet, order the waffle with Neat's upgraded chocolate hazelnut spread.

I'm not so sure how you "upgrade" something as good as chocolate hazelnut spread, but Neat somehow managed to do so.

Next go check out Terrain, the beloved garden store of Martha Stewart.

Don't fret; there is a café and a restaurant attached.

After viewing unique gardening tools and exotic plants, sit down for a meal at Terrain.

You deserve it.

You deserve it.

I mean, you've clearly built up an appetite from all the walking you've done around the store, right?

You must try the sunchokes..

And don't forget dessert!

This chocolate mousse with a rose cream should be light enough to end your meal.

Now that you're full, go shopping downtown!

But really it's just so you can build up your appetite...

So head to Kawa ni for some BOMB Japanese food, like this gorgeous karage.
