@ THE CORNER

“where good food and craft beer meet”

For General Manager, Jeff Schmidt and his Stepdad and owner Chef Red Lanphear good food and hospitality comes naturally. I’m at the corner and for me @ The Corner – which is quite literally on the corner of Main Street’s green at Route 63 & 202 is the “Pollo Loco Taco” and a”Steak Poutine”. It’s delicious. Open 7 days a week. | Website | (860) 567-8882 | IG: @athecorner

PEACHES N’ CREAM

There are two good ice cream shops in Litchfield, and yes one is absolutely Arethusa Farm. However – what we know and love about Peaches N’ Cream is that it is a small, locally owned ice cream parlor and that means a lot to us. All products are home made on site with sugar free and vegan options available. | Website | (860) 496-7536 | No known IG.
