Orangeside Luncheonette

25 Temple Street, New Haven, CT - (203) 773-1000

The Orangeside long dog is split and griddled, then tucked into a New England-style bun before the phenomenal chili is ladled on top.

Though the French fries are serviceable unadorned, we suggest ordering them with cheese and spicy chili.

The breakfast sandwiches, packed with eggs, cheese, and your choice of meat (sausage is pictured here), should be ordered on the locally baked Italian rolls.

Clockwise from the top left are buttermilk cake, Boston Cream filled, and the ultimate Butter Crunch, the latter of which is one of the best donuts in the country.

This buttermilk beauty has a cracked top that begs to be dunked in a hot beverage.

The devil's food cake donut is dense, chocolately, and quite filling.
