Wave Hill Breads Cafe


The best part about visiting a client in lower Fairfield County is the bevy of delicious lunch options. We always, and I mean always, try to work out a meeting time that will allow us to catch a tasty lunch before heading home.

After a recent client meeting in Norwalk we jumped onto our iPhones and discovered we were mere minutes away from Wave Hill Breads. Sweet! Now, we finally would give their cafe a try. We’re big fans of their bread, which is available at local farmers markets and local grocery stores.
The location at 30 High Street in Norwalk is totally unassuming, in fact, if you don’t pay attention you could drive right by it. The cafe is simple, cheery and adorned with artwork by local artists.

Lunch typically features two to three daily soup specials as well as a rotating assortment of sandwiches. Additionally, there is an array of pastries from croissants to pain au chocolate to cookies.

Both Renato and I were there for a little bread indulgence and we opted for sandwiches.

I had the smoked turkey, avocado and bacon with balsamic caramelized onions on honey whole wheat. It was a solid combo served with a small side spinach salad. The extra crispy thick-cut bacon was the perfect crunch to the creamy avocado and lightly sweet bread. I would totally order this again.

Renato chose the WHB Muffuletta featuring Genoa salami, capicola, provolone, mozzarella with marinated artichokes on olive and roasted red pepper ciabatta. The ciabatta is one of our favorites and he gave the sandwich a thumbs up.

While we resisted the tempting pastries, we couldn’t leave without buying a demi-baguette to enjoy back at home.

If we’re in the area again, we’d certainly go back for quick lunch.

The cafe is open Tues-Thurs from 8am to 3pm and Sat. and Sun. from 9am to 2pm. For a heads up on the daily specials go to their Facebook page. Or visit their website.
