Breakfast Buddies II
There's nothing like a good breakfast to set you up for the day ahead.
With that in mind, we are recalling some of our favorite breakfast spots from our cover story of May 2010 and presenting them here all this week. For the full list, you can check the article out right here.
And now for today's picks:
Olde Blue Bird Inn
363 Black Rock Tpke., Easton, (203) 452-0697
Do you have recurring fantasies of a good country breakfast in a 1919 roadside diner complete with maple hutches and bustling crowds of locals? The Blue Bird’s homemade baked goods are exceptional, as are dishes like blueberry-peach pancakes and pumpkin-walnut pancakes with maple butter. Very good eggs Benedict, too.
The Shack Restaurant
324 Flanders Rd., East Lyme, (860) 739-8898
Hungry? A local favorite at The Shack is “The Mess”—a plate of home fries topped with scrambled eggs, ham, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage and onions, all covered with Monterey Jack cheese and bacon, with grilled corn bread on the side. The extensive breakfast menu at this popular spot amply covers less bearlike hungers as well.Breakfast Buddies II
