Wandering Moose Scenic Breakfast Retreat

1-Wandering Moose


(EDITOR’S NOTE – The Wandering Moose is no longer open.)

WEST CORNWALL, CT – Just footsteps from the covered bridge, The Wandering Moose always seems to have bikes parked out in front and for a good reason – the omelets are great and so’s the hash. There’s a small outdoor patio for warm weather dining. It’s always a pleasure to stroll down by the Housatonic River and walk it flow under the covered the bridge. Adding to the fun is Route 7 on the other side of the bridge. The 40-mile stretch between New Milford to the south and the Massachusetts border to the north is a smooth, twisty ribbon of pleasure, except when filled with leaf-peepers in cars in autumn.

  1. Not so good anymore. Has gotten very pricey and not really motorcycle friendly, either. Went their last fall with two friends and owner gave us shit on where we parked out bikes, which was on a side street – nothing to do with the restaurant. Owner was more like a parking Nazi. Would not go back again, and I have lived in West Cornwall for 22 years. Sad. Used to be a great place. Try the Mountainside Cafe or Toymaker’s Café, both in Falls Village.
