Located at the intersection of US 44 and SR 74 it occupies half of building. There is ample parking and the menu is typical of a breakfast/lunch restaurant. I have been intrigued by The Wooden Spoon for years, but living a distance away, never found a convenient time to visit until today. My wife and I came at lunch time,... More

This place is a little gem in a the most unlucky of spots. Treat yourself to excellent food, prepared with care and served at fair prices. The pork schnitzel was outstanding !!! Scalloped Potatoes hot and just sooo good. This is the type of place we need to support, need to make a part of our dining regimen. I cannot... More

Pulled in here mid-way on a road trip across New England and found it ideal with great service and generous portions of quality food. Spot on for what we expected. Great place - seems to be popular with locals, so always a good sign. A great way of absorbing an American way of life too!

Had breakfast here. Food was yummy but the flies were persistent. That's nasty. That means the place needs cleaning. Upfront was acceptable, so.....

I eat there now and then for breakfast, i'm not a big eater and i order portions, doesn't seem to bother them as long as they are happy and the price is fair.

We have eaten breakfast here many times, and always loved the food and the atmosphere. This was the first time we ever went for dinner, which is only served on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The hostess and waitress were very courteous and friendly. . Even the other diners welcomed us so we immediately felt like we were among friends and family.... More

I was very disappointed - I recently met the new owner – she needs a lesson on good customer service. I ordered a few wraps and at checkout noticed that the prices went up to $8.99. Who charges 8.99 for a wrap in Ashford??? With potato chips - not even fries! Oh well, I thought they must be great. See... More

The best omelet I've had since I've been in CT! I had the spinach and feta egg whites with sliced tomatoes and a side of fresh Canadian Bacon. The restaurant isn't fancy but simple and clean.
