Breakfast Buddies III
Everyone has a favorite breakfast spots, and we have ours, too. Twenty-two of them in fact, along with a whole bunch of reader suggestions.
You can find them all right here, but in the meantime here are a couple of gems to consider for your next morning out:
499 Bantam Rd., Litchfield, (860) 567-3335
Go to Patty’s on a busy weekend morning and you get the sense of people not merely having breakfast, but greatly enjoying breakfast. This is understandable given the seasonal bill of fare—which might include raisin French toast, an omelet of apple, cheddar and sausage, and apple, walnut and cranberry pancakes.
728 Main St., Middletown, (860) 346-6101
The breakfast menu at this legendary spot is five pages long and full of wonderful surprises, but it’d probably be foolish to pass up something called The Dubliner at a place named O’Rourke’s. It is an omelet made with fresh corned beef hash and Irish cheddar accompanied by Irish bacon, fingerling potatoes and Irish soda bread topped with homemade jam.
