Pond House Café

The Pond House Café, located within the Park, is a top dining destination in Hartford, with an eclectic and creative cuisine. The focus on local, fresh and organic ingredients can be seen as you stroll by their vegetable and herb gardens on the grounds. Sunday Brunch and Tasty Tuesdays are favorites of the café patrons. The menu changes to reflect the seasons. Special events are offered, such as an Easter Brunch Buffet and Mother’s Day Brunch. The Pond House is open year around.

The Pond House Garden Room accommodates private parties from 25 to 200 guests. Whether you are planning a wedding, bar-bat mitzvah, social gathering, corporate meeting or a non-profit event, the Pond House is a wonderful backdrop for your special occasion. The Pond House Garden Room offers spectacular views, with floor to ceiling cathedral windows overlooking Elizabeth Park pond. The Pond House Café is beautifully decorated for the winter holiday season.

The Snack Shack, a take-out window, is open during the summer months and specializes in gourmet hot dogs, ice cream, cold drinks, and other warm-weather snacks.
