Ripka's Beach Cafe

Ripka’s Bulls Head Market is a name in transition. Originally named for the Bulls Head section of Stamford, leaving its roots needed a newer identity seemed to be apt. Bulls Head Market name seemed to be melting in to the synonymous famous name for deli meats that came to most minds outside of the Stamford area. Ripka’s was an easy fit with the founding partner tagging his name to the product.

Originally a single deli the passion for growing a multifaceted food service company became the calling in my heart. Having been a chef and trained sommelier as well as manager for a variety of restaurants and concepts, some my own and most for others, I felt I could put my passion in to creating an environment that would develop new business opportunities surrounding the food service sector…from a café concept to full service catering to corporate food service, my goal is to develop people and products and answer the market I am in.

After a rough year experiencing scaled down main street retail activity, Ripka’s continues to pursue the quality and experience for our clients at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk and at High Ridge Corporate Park in Stamford.

From casual beach side cuisine, to corporate food service to catering Ripka’s will deliver the quality and value expected for all our clients.

More importantly our business is about quality products, good service, fare pricing and community involvement.
