Don't be fooled by the luncheonette look on the outside. Cristy's has been in this location for a long time and was once a small diner type of place. Not anymore....Christy's offers a coffee cafe separate from the counter and main dining area. Breakfast can be ordered all day long. Daily specials = comfort food. Very generous portions. Friendly staff.

We had good service and the pancakes are excellent! I had raspberry oatmeal macadamia and I have never had better. The cornbeef hash was also very good although I have to admit I do miss the clam hash and red flannel hash that I'm used to being offered in Connecticut. Parking here is scarce.

Once you try breakfast at Christies you'll be back. The portions can't be beat. The food is consistent. The staff are excellent. Hard working to get you your breakfast hot, fresh and fast. I've never had a problem at Christies.

Little, well-known restaurant in Westbrook in a small shopping center. The best plain or specialty pancakes anywhere! No shortage of portions in anything served...my husband gives their swiss and bacon omelette two thumbs up, and can take some home for another meal! Coffee leaves something to be desired, though. Family friendly and extremely busy when tourists are in, so plan... More

Whenever my parents are in town visiting from Florida they ALWAYS want to eat at Christy's for breakfast or brunch. A fun atmosphere, yummy food (I love the raspberry crunchy french toast) and great location. We like to take a walk to the beach after our meal....beautiful setting 5 minute drive from restaurant. The sister restaurant in Madison is even... More

The breakfast choices are outstanding. I especially love the California Benedict . My husband loves their blueberry pancakes.we go often. Our grandchildren love their macaroni and cheese at lunch. I highly recommend it for casual dining.

Went to breakfast there and service was friendly, fast, and place was clean. Dinner was a different story. Place was filthy all around. Waitresses were rude (who rolls their eyes when taking an order? I saw her do this to the other two tables seated) and overwhelmed (place wasn't remotely busy because there were no tables) and food took forever.... More
