Ripka’s is an unusual spot in Norwalk. It’s got the vibe of a beachside shack, yet the shack is more like a 1950s school room, cinderblock aesthetic, and the food covers the seaside fare you’d expect. But then there are the special events, where the food goes up a notch or two, because they can. So if you looking for a quick nosh while you are at the beach, Rypka’s is there. And if you are looking for a clam bake, well for that you need to check out their website for details. They serve breakfast, year round.
