Spend Sunday morning as you wish and then head out for a late breakfast/early lunch that will tide you over until dinner. Absolutely perfect for #realtor life, where hosting Sunday afternoon open houses is the norm.
Over the years, we’ve all tried many places – some have come and gone while others have stood the test of time. Give our current favorites a try and let us know what you think.
Tried and true, in Easton is The Olde Bluebird Inn. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and of course, an awesome breakfast. Equally great are the Westport icons — Dunville’s and the Sherwood Diner. In Blackrock, Haborview gets an enthusiastic thumbs up for its variety of delicious breakfast sandwiches and omelets.
Lavish and more traditional brunch buffets can be found at Via Sforza (with an Italian flare) and The Pearl in Westport. For those willing to venture a bit out of Fairfield County, The Wharf at the Madison Beach Hotel was voted ‘Best Brunch’ in New Haven County by Connecticut Magazine, and includes a signature raw bar among the more traditional offerings. The Bacon Bloody Mary comes highly recommended!
A special brunch menu, with a French flare, is offered at Martel in Fairfield. In Westport you can’t go wrong with the atmosphere (or food) at Terrain, the Greenhouse Café , the Boathouse at Saugatuck or Tavern on Main (with bottomless Bloodies, Bellini’s & Mimosas for those not working in the afternoon!). In Wilton, the Schoolhouse at Cannondale will delight with entrees ranging from a French Toasted Brioche to the Schoolhouse Burger with Black Pepper Truffle Aioli
Artisan in Southport has blended offerings – a small buffet, plus a special menu featuring delights like Coffee Rubbed Sunday Brisket. Need we say more?
Of course, there are those days when nothing can match draw of family favorites cooked in your own kitchen….Bon Appetit!
