Excellent food with a wide variety of menu choices. The service is quick and pleasant with the staff eager to please. I had the huevos rancheros. They were excellent! It's a popular place in a convenient location in New Haven.

I went here recently with a friend. I call these dishes vegetarian comfort food, and they are great. I've had the stuffed peppers and lasagna rolls, and both were delicious. There is a large variety of dishes reflecting many cultures. There are so many items on the blackboard, it can be overwhelming to read, so I order visually from the... More

When the owner is the pastry chef it's a good start. Claire's is a mainstay in New Haven and what a treat for me. It was friendly and bustling and though, as a gluten free gal, I am used to going into bakeries just too look and envy, Claire's offered me a choice of some great gluten free options as... More

Claire's never disappoints! The extensive menu can seem overwhelming,but counter staff is attentive and knowledgeable, even offering samples, suggestions and recommendations. The vegan cakes and muffins are amazing!

Love Claire's! Good healthful food. Great service. Warm atmosphere. I am literally addicted to their egg salad. Get it with a wheat roll instead of bread

We go here because it is the only real Kosher sit down restaurant in New Haven. And thank you for being Kosher. And thank you for having very fresh ingredients. And thank you for having lots of cheese on your entrees. But it is very crowded, it is tough to get a seat - and lots of students are there... More

The lady at the counter who took our order was extremely nice but after that it went down hill. Bad management you wait in line to place your order and your given your coffee when you pay. 15min later you get your food. While waiting for our food I needed to use the bathroom bad had to go to the... More

One of my young friends, a Yale graduate, when I asked what I should do in New Haven said, "Go to Claire's bakery and get the coffee cake." I didn't get to meet Claire, but I saw her picture, and everyone was nice and the Lithuanian Coffee Cake was superior.

I am not a vegetarian and am not one to typically order or visit a restaurant of that nature. However, the pasta fagioli is out of this world. The fresh bread, the fresh ingredients...... I love stopping by when I'm in the area. The soup is always divine. The Lithuanian coffee cake and carrot cake are a MUST! I actually... More

When I first moved to New Haven in 2001, this was one of my favorite spots for lunch. The food was delicious, plentiful, reasonably priced (not inexpensive - but reasonable), and the service friendly and prompt with a few rough edges around the refinement edges. But that was fine. The last few years, things have declined both in the food... More
