I enjoy finding new places in Lowell, and this morning’s discovery was the Connector Cafe & Grill at 724 Chelmsford Street, a clean, well-lighted restaurant in a small business plaza close to Lowe’s in the Highlands.
I was with two friends, who ordered eggs, home fries, and toast, which were first-rate at the table. Besides the regular menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner selections, there is a Paleo Menu that emphasizes meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and olive oil and excludes processed foods, grains, dairy, legumes, refined sugars, and processed oils. I hadn’t seen this before, so I ordered the “Fran,” a vegetable omelette plus sweet potato hash and sliced cold tomatoes. Everything was fresh and tasty. I would order this again.
Inside, the atmosphere is bright and comfortable with seating for about 25 people. The chef and wait staff are friendly and eager to help. Breakfast is served all day. The sandwich and dinner offerings are plentiful, from wraps and subs to Caesar salad with grilled wild salmon, spaghetti, Buffalo wings, and pork tenderloin tips. The catering menu includes sandwich platters and a range of Italian and Greek foods—chicken parmesan to pastichio and spinach pie.
