The Pond House Café Blooms in Elizabeth Park Year Round

The Pond House Café is housed in a building that used to be home to the snack bar in the heart of Hartford’s venerable Elizabeth Park. While a small snack bar still exists at a window on the exterior of the building, I am still nostalgic for boxes of cracker jacks and salty popcorn as I enter the café. However, what awaits you now within the Pond House far excels the old snack selections sold!
