Port Coffee House
2889 Fairfield Ave Bridgeport, CT
Sorry we haven’t posted for so long. I’ve been very busy with school, baseball and even took a vacation to Savannah, Georgia… which we will be blogging about next week but for today we’ll be telling you about one of our new favorite places… Dish!
As you all know, today is Cinco De Mayo, which put me in the mood for a Mexican-inspired breakfast. We also wanted to try out Dish – so we were really happy when we could do both!
Dish was started by Janet Habansky, she learned to be a chef by cooking for her family, on her website she calls this learning how to cook at ““School of Mom and Grandma”. So we knew this was going to be good.
As soon as you walk in, you enter through the Port Coffee House, which is attached to Dish. Here you are greeted and given a slip of paper which has all of the breakfast choices on it… you check off what you would like, order your drink, then you go through an archway next door to Dish which looks like a big open kitchen in someone’s house. Then you give your order to the chefs who then make it fresh for you. The tables are big, because you get to sit on the tables with other families and diners who you don’t even know - which is fun. It’s really popular with kids — there were a lot there today.
Now about the food — since it was Cinco de Mayo, I decided to have Huevos Rancheros! Black Beans, “Fresh Chunky Salsa”, Fresh Guacamole, Eggs, Cheese and Sour Cream served on a Tortilla. It was excellent. I told the staff that there is a difference between gourmet and simply just amazing… and this was amazing! I also had a side of Bacon — which was flavorful… and to drink… I had a Hot Chocolate which was also really good. I tried my Dad’s French Toast, which is one of their specialties and some of their Homemade Sausage which was superb.
He told me, “From a lot of places, we special order things, some things come from the market… some things even from BJ’s!” “I love Egg Whites and love what you had, The Huevos Rancheros!”
I also spoke with Jerry, at Port Coffee House and asked what the most popular baked good is.
He told me, “People love the Apricot Scones and our Gluten-Free breads!”
Thanks to everyone at Port Coffee House and Dish for being so nice and for the delicious breakfast… we’ll definitely be back!
