211 State Street Bridgeport, CT
Coffee is always a good idea. If it is a latte you crave or a wake-me-up espresso, Funchal has you covered. Their drinks are made from fresh coffee/espresso beans that are ground on the spot. Talk about fancy!
Located on the McLevy Green, Funchal’s fast become one of my favorites. I can relax on one of their sofas and stay there all day, going back and forth to their coffee station to try the endless flavors offered everyday:
- French Vanilla
- Butter Pecan
- Maple Cinnamon French toast
- Chocolate Cappuccino
- Cinnamon Churro
- Tropical Coconut
- Breakfast Blend OR Drink it Darker
But it’s not only coffee. Funchal Café has cheesesteaks. It ain’t a real Philly cheesesteak because I’ve been there and nobody can do cheesesteak like Philly. But Funchal’s Classic Steak & Cheese wrap, my favorite, got cheese, lots of gooey cheese – and loaded with sliced roast beef, caramelized onions, portabella mushrooms and mayo. Oh Myyyy Gawdddd, this thing is so juicyyyyyy! I literally bragged about it to the entire staff. Like they didn’t know! I also got a discount for being a Bridgeport resident, say what!? I’m loving y’all. Every item comes with a side of macaroni salad, veggies or cole slaw.
And let me give a shoutout to the student at Housatonic Community College who painted an outrageously beautiful mural for Funchal Café’s front counter. To my dismay, no one knows your name but you’ve painted our city so beautifully and left your mark in downtown Bridgeport.
