The Indian Turkey Sloppy Joe hot open scone at Daily Fare in Bethel.

If you are one of the lucky ones who get to ride the train from Bethel every day, then you have most likely already discovered the tasty eats at Daily Fare, the in-house cafe at the train station.

Those of you who don’t take the train regularly, I highly recommend stopping in for your morning cup of coffee and bite to eat or popping by for a nice quiet lunch.

Daily Fare serves locally roasted coffee from Bethel’s Redding Roasters and offers a variety of locally sourced teas from Simpson & Vail Teas in Brookfield. She also has cookies and bagels, but she has become best known for her scones, ranging from strawberry coconut to blueberry to cinnamon chocolate.

The Indian Turkey Sloppy Joe hot open scone at Daily Fare in Bethel.I KNOW that a lot of you readers are local to the Greater Danbury, Connecticut area. It would be fair to say that a good number of you are commuters to your jobs. Of those commuters, there has to be at least a few of you that take the train from the Bethel train station. If you are one of the lucky ones who get to ride the train every day, then you have most likely already discovered the tasty eats at Daily Fare, the in-house cafe at the Bethel station.  Those of you who don’t take the train regularly, I highly recommend stopping in for your morning cup of coffee and bite to eat or popping by for a nice quiet lunch.

Daily Fare is owned and operated by Chef Robin Grubard. Grubard went to culinary school in Baltimore, Maryland and has worked in high end restaurants and as a personal chef. She decided to leave the hectic life of foie gras and fine wines to find a better balance between work and home. This decision landed Robin and her husband in Bethel. Robin opened Daily Fare three and a half years ago and has been filling commuters bellies and supplying their morning dose of caffeine ever since.

 

There are hot open scone sandwiches to meet all tastes, including Meatball Stroganoff and the “Thanksgiving Anytime”, complete with turkey, stuffing and cranberry chutney.


Daily Fare serves locally roasted coffee from Bethel’s Redding Roasters and offers a variety of locally sourced teas from Simpson & Vail Teas in Brookfield. She also has cookies and bagels, but she has become best known for her scones, ranging from strawberry coconut to blueberry to cinnamon chocolate. The scones are perfectly moist and go great with your morning cup of joe. But the goodness doesn’t stop at breakfast.

Grubard also makes a larger scones in several more savory varieties such as corn, multi-grain, and bacon cheddar, which she uses in her hot open scone sandwiches. These are filling, healthy sandwiches that are great for lunch. I tried the Indian Turkey Sloppy Joe, and it was delicious; a lightly spiced mix of ground turkey, raisins and pistachios paired with a corn scone was a perfect match, along with a side of a tangy carrot slaw. There are hot open scone sandwiches to meet all tastes, including Meatball Stroganoff and the “Thanksgiving Anytime”, complete with turkey, stuffing and cranberry chutney. Daily Fare also offers an assortment of other sandwiches served on wheat bread, white bread, wraps or, of course, a scone.  

Daily Fare is open from 6:30am to 2pm Monday through Friday, and Grubard will be there every day to serve you as you wait for your train. Lunch-goers will find a very peaceful, quite place to take a rest from a chaotic day and enjoy some good food to help you push through the afternoon. So stop in and see Chef Robin soon and try a scone; I guarantee you will want to return for more.
