Las Vetas Lounge
29 Unquowa Road, Fairfield
The hodge-podgiest coffee shop I’ve ever graced with my presence, this café boasts an enormous selection of teas and coffee drinks (Flava-Mave, Shizzler’s Toffee Chocolate Shake), retro candy (candy bracelets, Bit O’Honey), single-serve bowls of sugared cereals, wall o’ bagged chips, some baked goods, sandwiches, garage-sale seating …you get the idea. Coffee’s okay but – let’s be honest – completely beside the point.
Robin’s note: Good news is, the environment itself is so loud no one notices when your children act like non-domesticated wildebeest.
Who you’ll see eating here: Fairfield U students, moms with young kids, and a random sprinkling of 50 year-old men.
Their specialty: Coffee drinks.
What you should order: One of their crazy coffee drinks, bag of fritos, handful of mini chocolate bars, and some sort of hard taffy lollipop that’ll keep the kids busy while you enjoy your lunch.
What you may not know buy should: They don’t have a liquor license, but bring in a bottle of wine and they’ll serve it for a nominal corkage fee.
