“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Love the apple pancakes, and most of the specials. I found them off the Hometown quarterly last year and have been going back since. The place is out of the way. It's on 140 in that funky little plaza that has never been very good to restaurants, most lasting 2-3 years tops. Hopefully this one sticks. It's great food, it's worth the drive.

“This is the best breakfast place in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We love this gem of a restaurant. The daily specials are the best and we always order from the specials menu. We wish they did more than breakfast/lunch. I'd suggest doing a limited dinner menu and allowing bring your own wine. They'd have a huge following if they did late night breakfast too.

“Spacious with lots of seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Along with the usual breakfast offerings, the owners are interested in exploring breakfast takes on meals you'd find later in the day. For example, they have "Hell 'n' Eggs" features a bowl of chili topped with an over-easy egg, with a side of grilled cornbread. It's a fun, eclectic menu--and there are also of daily specials, so follow them on Facebook if you are a local.

I'm lucky to live near a bunch of great breakfast places, but I often go to Stir the Pot BECAUSE of its size. It is a spacious restaurant with lots of seating. I know that the chances of me waiting for breakfast is significantly lowered that if I went to other places in East Windsor.

If you are an out-of-town hardcore foodie, you might find the food inconsistent and I'd direct you to other places. If you are a local that just wants a comfortable breakfast with friends, you can't go wrong with Stir the Pot. Everyone there is really nice and it's great addition to the East Windsor breakfast scene.

“Not just another chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is a small restaurant in a small town. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is not large, but everything is delicious and unexpected. Even the names of the dishes make you smile. It sounds like they were named after a family member or friend. The chef is well-trained and not afraid to try new dishes. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have been there several times, mainly for breakfast. Plenty of food, very tasty, and always something new on the menu.
