Profile: Midtown Cafe, Danbury CT

One of Danbury’s newest eateries is one not to be missed.

The Midtown Cafe, located directly across from the White Street campus of Western Connecticut University and opened in January of 2010 is already booming,and deservedly so.

In the words of one of the partners, Jason Cancro, the café is a “high-end burger joint”. For lack of a better description, I guess that would fit but it’s really a lot more.

With over 30 menu items, all cooked to order, Cancro along with partner Dan Serafini really seem to have nailed the recipe for what I predict will become a classic Danbury establishment.

Their signature “Midtown Burger” is just the right size with all the right fixings and is cooked along with most other hot sandwiches over an open flame on their charcoal pit. For burger lovers, like me, this is the only way to do it.

In addition to burgers and chicken sandwiches, just to name a few items,they also have a daily soup choice and a daily pizza choice. Even the pizza dough is smoked on the charcoal before it is topped and finished in the oven.

Cancro, a long-time Danbury resident was formerly in the deli business and Serafini was trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Dutchess County, NY

Open every day for lunch and dinner they also serve breakfast daily except Sunday. Their selections include the traditional items in addition to serving Bagelman Bagels which are delivered fresh each morning.

One section of the “joint” is a lounge for reading, chatting, emailing or Tweeting using the free Wi-Fi.  The lounge is also hosting coffee-house music one night a week.

If you’re anywhere in Danbury at meal time, it’s worth heading over to White Street to check this place out.

Midtown Cafe is located at 172 White Street Danbury  (203) 791-1119.

    I’ll be telling my family in that part of the state about this place – oh, and barring some time for research, your blog post subject challenge is accepted.
