Soups, sandwiches, and salads are classic lunch staples. And, those are something that Bobette’s Restaurant in Milford has gotten down to a T. Located on Gulf Street, the restaurant offers an eclectic mix of classic lunch favorites and new items that make it a perfect place to grab a quick bite to eat during your lunch break.
Bobette’s has two menus — their daily menu which consists of their daily specials and their everyday menu, which offers breakfast, sandwiches, soups, and salads. Furthermore, they also offer desserts and combos consisting of a soup and salad and a sandwich and soup as well (sort of like Panera’s you pick two) — a great option for those who can’t make decisions. All of their food is delicious and fresh.
While their menu items are extensive, their prices are reasonable. Many of their sandwiches are less than $10, and you can get 12 ounces of soup for $5.50, which would last for a few meals.
Now let’s get to the good part. Bobette’s has been a great lunch option on those bone chilling days — like January in Connecticut — when all you need is a good cup of soup and comfort. I am a huge fan of their soup, and have even gotten a large container of it to last a few days. If you try anything from Bobette’s, you simply must give their soup a try.
However, what is soup without a sandwich. I also pair a cup of their soup with one of their sandwiches. I’ve tried their special dirty chicken ceaser, honey mustard chicken, and it paired wonderfully together.
Overall, Bobette’s is a delicious lunch spot to check out on the days you’re in the Milford area during your lunch hour. And, if you just want to grab it to go, you can take advantage of their online ordering feature — perfect for someone on the go in between Zoom meetings.
