The Amazing Connecticut Restaurant You Can Only Get To By Boat

One of the most hidden dining spots in the state, Marley’s Cafe is located on an island just off the city’s riverbank. That’s right! Essex Island Marina is home to a Jamaican island paradise.

They serve breakfast and lunch and it’s always delicious. Check it out:
