New Dinners at Truffles Bakery in Farmington: Gourmet and a Bargain Too
(page 2 of 2)
“Maybe in the summer we’ll have slices of pie, or a strawberry shortcake would be nice,” she says. “That would be a delicious dessert to have after dinner, freshly made.”
Truffles increasing focuses on non-processed, non GMO foods and it has gluten-free options ranging from brownies to sandwich wraps—and there’s more to Walton’s story, such as the fact that she and her husband also run the cafeteria at the University of Connecticut School of Law.
But enough said. At this point, you probably just want to check out Truffles’ Sunday brunch (think yummy pancakes), and its breakfast and lunch menus—and see the home page for links to the range of sweets and baked goods (“People have gotten into arguments about [getting the last] chocolate chip cookies before,” Walton says.)
(Above, chocolate raspberry cupcakes with raspberry French buttercream and gelee stars.)
And Walton will be happy to tell you her story—that is, if there are any pauses in your exclamations about how great everything about Truffles is. For more, information, see the website, the Facebook page, or call Truffles at at (860) 409-0667. The address is 767 Farmington Avenue in Farmington.
From the website, the hours are as follows:
(grill closes at 3pm - cold sandwiches/salads available till closing)
(serving our new dinner menu 3-8pm)
Serving our usual until closing, PLUS Brunch until 1pm in our dining room!
Parking is limited directly in front of Truffles and—largely because of the flow of Traffic on Farmington Avenue (Route 4)—getting in and out can sometimes seem challenging. An alternative is to turn onto High Street and immediately turn right into a parking lot that puts you behind Truffles, in a much calmer environment.
