Chip’s Family Restaurant, 525 Tunxis Hill Cutoff, Fairfield, CT www.chipsrest.com
When I heard that one of my favorite breakfast spots, Chip’s Family Restaurant was opening a new location in Fairfield, I knew I had to go there! It’s been over two years since I’ve been to Chip’s, mainly because the original one is in Orange, CT which is about 40 minutes away. Now that they are in Fairfield, I can go there more!
Chip’s is famous for their pancakes! They have over 40 types for you to try – so there’s something for everyone. And they even have cool syrups! There are six different types for you to try: Maple, Pecan, Strawberry, Apricot, Coconut and even Boysenberry!
If you don’t want pancakes, they have all sorts of other food on the breakfast menu and are also open for lunch and dinner too.
Chip’s is SO awesome, they have their own mascot — Mr. Chip, The Pancake Prince! Their own SONG! And even a commercial on TV!
Check it out!
I had the M&M Pancakes — which were very fluffy and delicious — a side of bacon and a chocolate milk which was freshly made by our nice server Samantha!
I asked, Adam Kindilien, the manager of Chip’s,
“Why did Chip’s want to open in Fairfield?”
He said, “So many of our customers love Chip’s so much that they drove to Orange from all around — like Darien, Westport, Stamford and even Norwalk, so we thought it would be good to open in Fairfield, to be closer to them”
I also asked him,
“What’s the most popular pancake at Chips?”
He said, “The most popular is the German Apple Pancakes which is made of fresh sliced apples cooked inside five buttermilk pancakes, topped with cinnamon and powdered sugar. All served with a raspberry purée sauce!”
I’ll be trying that next time!
Chip’s is great for kids, they let you color the placemats and they will display your art on the wall — the new Chip’s is open now, and because they are so popular, the lines ARE HUGE! So get there early. The official grand opening is on September 9th.
