REVIEWS OF RJ Cafe & Bistro IN Connecticut

Margo Bivins

Cute little spot. I was looking for a place as I was in the area that had gluten free options. Has several gluten free options and friendly service.

In the area and saw they were pet friendly, which was so convenient since I had my dog. Sat on the quaint, shaded back patio, enjoyed a salad, ginger peach iced tea and was brought a bowl of water for my dog.

Robert Guilmette

Great sandwiches, wonderful old book store, nice outdoor patio. Love it!

This little cafe is quite a surprise. A little jewel hidden amid wonderful tomes, it has far more to offer than most would imagine. A wonderful variety of iced teas wash a palate satiated with scrumptious foods only to be followed by an array of some of the best recent literature.

Chrissie Le

Staff is very friendly, food comes quickly and is a nice lighter fare option. They also have gluten free options and are very accommodating.

Macy Lind

What is there to not love about this place. Fresh menu, good coffee, friendly staff, nice cold drinks for summer, outdoor seating, books, indoor seating, cushions and art work.

Delicious gf bread . Had a lobster sandwich and Whoppy pie. Don't miss this if you are in Madison Conn.

Gabriel Chase

This place is a hidden gem located in a small, local bookstore that is already a hidden gem in Madison. The staff are very friendly and hard-working. The meals and the coffee are great. My wife and I have stopped here for food several times, and I've tried several different things. Their salads are fresh and delicious, and my personal favorite item was their chipotle chicken flat. A few weeks ago, my wife and I also got delicious, holiday themed lattes. I highly recommend this place, whether for a quick drink and muffin, or for a lunch.

RJ Julia is a wonderful book store with an amazing selection and great children's section but the cafe is just OK. Good soups but food is so so. Service can be slow and space is small. The do have some good desserts (cupcakes) and it's a cozy place to get a cup of coffee, coco, or tea.

Justine Childs Friedman

Had a lovely salad with curry chicken. It was a beautiful weekend day so we sat outside. The servers were a bit in the weeds. Nice selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. The cupcake frosting got a hard pass from my daughter, but otherwise all was good.

Aust Bozz Vlogs

A little small but the food is good

Casey Hines

Such a great cafe. Excellent coffee and very friendly staff. The fact that is nestled inside one of the best bookstores in America doesn't hurt either!

Karen Leite

Delicious sandwiches. I had the curry chicken. My husband had tomato veggie soup. He said it was very hearty and nice and hot. I had an amazing cupcake. Rosemary with a Chardonnay frosting. AMAZING

Terrie Nelson-Johnson

RJ Cafe & Bristo, a cozy bisto located in a fabulous bookstore. You can find a good book and a great meal. We had curried chicken salad with mango sauce and apples. On our way back we had a margarita flat and chicken and onion flat.

Jimmy Graham

Lobster grilled cheese was amazing. It was a special though. The coffee was good and the servers were extra nice. Outdoor seating was a big plus. Definitely coming back.

Karin Thelin

Good food and coffee, nice ambiance and friendly staff!

Dianne Galley

Last spring, my daughter and I took a trip to Hamden to look at colleges and on the way back, we stopped at this bookstore and had a bite to eat in the café. The store is very quaint and homey, the staff very helpful and friendly, the café is also staffed with friendly people and the food is great. Every time I pick her up at school to bring her home, we try to stop in for a bite to eat. It has become a favorite place for both of us. I highly recommend it.

Carole Hagemeister

Joe Vitelli

Lisa Pantalone Rollins

Nice menu and service

Scott Miller

Cafe in the back of a popular bookstore. Both come across a bit too full of themselves, perhaps reflecting the true nature of Madison beyond the Miller house. But the coffee is good, even though it only comes in one size.
