Great breakfast, lovely atmosphere

Sit by the big front window on a sunny morning, watch the world go by outside, and listen to the warm sweet hum of conversation inside. This is a gem of a place: home-made muffins and omelettes and good coffee along with plenty of customers who have been coming here for years. The waitresses are... read more

Still trying to find my favorite breakfast place in town, so naturally my feet led me here eventually. Small place, seasoned (old), but well kept and quiet at this time of day. Friendly service, that avoided direct eye contact and free choice of seating. Standard menu is small, majority is on the board for choices. I opted for simply 2... More

We came to this place based on reviews after hoping around different breakfast joints in the area. The area is beautiful and we were able to sit by the large window. The inside is decked out like an average mom and pop breakfast nook, small tables, local art and pictures on the wall of family and the town. The specialty... More

A local favorite with fresh ingredients used in a creative menu. Small and homey with art for sale on the walls and photos and articles about the restaurant and town. Dolores and her staff make you feel part of the family

This small mom/daughter run restaurant is a hidden gem that should not be missed. Everything is made on premise, including the daily selection of amazing muffins. The specials are always really creative, and often "Italian inspired" (think cheesy polenta topped with fresh sauteed crumbled sausage and veggies). Because everything is made to order, asking for special food accommodations never seems... More

We love this place! We used to live in this neighborhood. We can't get the way they prepare breakfast on other restaurants anymore!

This is a charming little breakfast book right in Main St. in Brandord, CT. The muffins are as good as advertised. Omelet was excellent. Great staff. Nice vibe.

Funky and unique. Home town nastalgia mixed with eclectic art in an old small town coffee shop atmosphere. Standard eggs and coffee or upgrade to great specials like a broccoli rabe and sausage omelette with cherry peppers or great whole wheat blueberry pancakes.
