Best breakfast in the vicinity!

By far the best omelettes I have had in Connecticut ever! The breakfast sandwiches are good too. Only negative is limited parking at times, at least anywhere near the front door due to many businesses sharing the same lot. Second negative is no credit cards, and that is usually only a problem for... read more

Unfortunately this location, 705 Boston Post Rd next to Planet Fitness, is now closed. Their other location in N. Branford, 2341 Foxon Road, North Branford, Rte 80 is open. I had eaten at the original; location several times and the food was always good but the service from the kitchen was slow.

We visited for breakfast on Saturday and it was not as great as our 2 previous visits. My husband got a California Eggs Benedict and he searched through his dish to find the avocado that was listed on the menu. The waiter went back to the kitchen to get it. I had a wonderful Pumpkin Spice Belgian Waffle with vanilla... More

I've always enjoyed the comfort food at this place. They now are only open on Thursdays through Sunday.

I came here for breakfast, it was outstanding. I had the corned beef hash with poached eggs; it was the best I have ever had. Service friendly and prompt!!

This used to be my favorite breakfast spot. Last time it was dirty and service was poor. Food was just adequate but nothing like it was years ago under the other owners

Cash only! Spotty service! Hours are short! The girl with the tattoos is self-absorbed, preferring to do anything behind the counter other than serve customers! Food is mediocre! That's the bad news. The good news is regulars love this place because they get a familiar greeting and know what they should order from the menu. Portions are as you would... More

The food was terrific. Home-made corned-beef hash, home-made blueberry muffins split and warmed with butter over the grill, and really really good diner-style coffee. Obviously a local favorite.

We found the hidden kitchen with help of a smartphone app on a trip back south after visiting one of our children in Worcester, MA. What a fortunate find! On our most recent trip, we made a point to stop here again for breakfast. The breakfast offerings vary from standard to creative, but all are well-prepared and delicious. I usually... More

Was looking forward to a late breakfast at The Hidden Kitchen after reading the positive reviews today. They didn't have the ingredients for my first choice so I ordered the black and blue pancakes from the specials board. There were a few frozen blueberries in the pancakes and one fresh blackberry on top of the pancakes. The pancakes were very... More
