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

We found this restaurant by chance. We left MA. early to go to a wedding in CT. We stopped & were pleasantly surprised that it was more than good! The menu was different, easy, simple, good simple. My husband had eggs, typical breakfast & was good. I had a grilled cheese & hot dog sandwich! Never heard of it! It... More

We have frequented this little breakfast & lunch restaurant numerous times. Never disappointed. The breakfast fare is very good, the menu is extensive and the prices are inexpensive -- a good value for the family. Tends to be very busy in season (summer) and on weekends, so plan ahead if you're under a time-constraint.

OK - I have note eaten in every restaurant, but a few years ago I had a omelet while staying at a Ritz Carlton Hotel in South Beach. The chef asked her if that was the best omelet i ever had. And I said no ... that honor belongs to the Coffee Break in Clinton, CT. It is an unassuming... More

This is the ultimate hangout for the Clinton townies. Breakfast is very ample and reasonably priced. Try the omelettes: Really nice! Parking is in the back. Service is excellent. To appreciate the funky wholesomeness of this place is to appreciate our wonderful hometown of Clinton, Connecticut.

Found this small town diner after visiting the outlets. It was everything it should have been! I love real American breakfast, fast ,hot ,good choice, not expensive, local customers, local staff, sit at the bar, top up your coffee before you ask, and more. You will need satnav to find it but it is worth it.
