Dancing Elephant: a new Colby favorite in Fairfield

I clearly remember the day that I learned that Fairfield’s beloved Kennebec Café closed. My girlfriend Elise and I had woken up on a Sunday morning, still drowsy from the previous night’s festivities and decided to go to our favorite breakfast spot, purveyors of decadent donuts and coma-inducing eggs benedict.

Banana cream pie on public trial

The Echo recently granted me the opportunity to try Bobs’ famous banana cream pie. However, my last review was labeled “too extreme” and “that guy legit wants to have sex with a pie,” so the Echo has barred me from expressing my opinions on the hot, sensual pie – I mean pie.
