Lakeside Diner, 1050 Long Ridge Road, Stamford, CT
The Lakeside Diner has been serving breakfast since 1951 and Jane Agostino has owned it for over 27 years. She came here from Denmark when she was 18!
The Lakeside known for two things… it’s by a lake and their donuts!
Lakeside donuts are homemade and come in two different kinds… Plain and Sugar.
I asked Ms. Jane: “How many donuts do you sell on a Sunday?”
She said, “Wow, a lot! — About 30 dozen – sugar is the most popular, I sell ten times the amount of sugar donuts to plain”.
360 Donuts in one day! That’s a “HOLE” lot of donuts!
If you’re lucky and can get a table by the window, you will see the lake and even some wildlife like fish, ducks and even a beaver!
I had the short stack of pancakes, bacon and a chocolate milk — it was great! We also bought donuts for the ride home and one for MY MOM!
Lakeside Diner is very popular with kids, and since there are only a few tables, get there early!
