Decent food, good prices

My kids love going for the breakfast, and each time we go the restaurant never lets them down - consistently good, quality food and decent prices. They order pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon.... Servings are large and the tell take sign of a good place - Dad, can we go to Coffee Break again

...if you like good, down home food in a friendly, quirky atmosphere then this is your place. Had been here many times for breakfast, but today was the first time for lunch, and the food and service is the same...GREAT. Our server, Elizabeth, was very sweet and professional and took great care of us without being intrusive. The decor of... More

Decided to try this place for breakfast, arriving a few minutes before 9 a.m. on a Sunday. Ordered a couple minutes after being seated, and were served our coffee and tea. Looking around at a few other tables, we began to wonder why another couple who were there before us had not been served yet. They eventually were around 9:25.... More

This is a must try for breakfast. The pancakes are delicious and the staff is very attentive. The place is clean and neat. You'll feel at home, the decoration is lovely.

I live in town, and this place has been open for as long as we've lived here. Good "home cooked" breakfast fare - lunch is great too, though we far more often are there for breakfast. On your first visit, time it so you're there during the top of an hour - multiple cuckoo, and chiming clocks are all over... More

I'm local and hadn't been to the Coffee Break in a few years. I went 2 weeks ago and had a really good breakfast. The service is attentive, coffee, water and tea were replenished in a timely manner. Service was also very friendly. I was there at 11am, so lunch was also starting to be served. A person at the... More

Coffee Break is about the only place in town for a sit down breakfast. It has a "Mom and Pop" feel to it. Food is ok, and if you want grits with your eggs, this is the ONLY place I know of in Connecticut to get them.

We searched Yelp for good breakfast in Branford where we were staying, and this place had great reviews. I was expecting really good grub, based on the enthusiastic reviews, but I wasn't expecting such a large menu, house-made corned beef hash, or the best Reuben I have had in years. Great flavor all around, including waffles, eggs, french fries, and... More
