Do[edit]

Buy[edit]

Eat[edit]

  • The Place, 901 Boston Post Road, +1 203-453-9276. Tree stumps for seats, spools for tables, and the smell of clam-bake in the air, it could only be The Place. The whole restaurant is outdoors, so getting a bite here is only possible during the warmer months. It's kind of pricey so packing a cooler with drinks and appetizers may be wise, however the food is delicious!
  • Naples Pizza, 850 Boston Post Road, +1 203-453-4759. Cheesy pizza, panini and fried mozzarella. Seating is limited.
  • The Stone House, 506 Whitfield Street, +1 203-458-3700. Located on the Guilford Marina, the stone house isn't somewhere you want to go for a casual meal. Here its quality not quantity, however the presentation of their dishes is quite nice.
  • Shoreline Diner, 345 Boston Post Road, +1 203-458-7380. Just the average diner, if your looking to fuel up on an inexpensive meal this is the place to go. A triple stack of pancakes usually gets the job done.
  • Quattros, 14 Water Street, +1 203-453-6575. Probably some of the best Italian food in the area. Quattros is more fine dining then casual, although not too overboard. Ravioli hits the spot.
  • Little Store, 2802 Durham Road, +1 203-457-0009. A little shack up in North Guilford right before Lake Quanapoag. Bacon egg and cheese is excellent, actually any of their breakfast sandwiches are appetizing
  • Hidden Kitchen, 705 Boston Post Road #C4, +1 203-458-7806. It actually is hidden, this little breakfast joint is located conveniently out of sight behind the fitness center. Once you find it dig in, they make great French toast.
  • Deli Unlimited, 1099 Boston Post Road, +1 203-453-2473. Looks are deceiving, this deli is located in a gas station, but it is definitely one of the best places to grab a bite in Guilford. Amazing sandwich selection among other things, and the quality is great. A local favorite.
  • Pasta Avest & Pizzeria, 680 Boston Post Road, +1 203-453-8779. Pasta Avest has everything from fresh salads to stuffed breads. Offers Foxon Park soda, a locally-produced drink. Seating is limited.
