I stop it probably 1 a week. Everyone is always polite and happy to see you. I kinda have the same thing all the time . Ham with eggs toast coffee and a glass of milk. I always see all different types of pancakes going out to the tables. I know there are also plenty of choices to have for... More

Just down the street from home so we go often on the weekends. Breakfast is great with large variety. Muffins are delicious, get them warm so you get a carmelized coating on top by they way they warm them up. So good. Don't be discouraged by the line out the door, it moves pretty quick. After all, a line out... More

Nice little breakfast spot. It was very busy Saturday morning but the staff was nice and the food was good. Refills on coffee and great egg dishes.

This place is only open for breakfast...that's how good this place is....if you are not there by 7 am when it opens you are going to wait for a table. Everything about the food is top notch..from the Omelets to the potatoes to the French toast to the coffee. If you are in the area and love to eat out... More

One of the best places for breakfast in the New Haven area. Large and bright, the Breakfast Nook is a must for weekend breakfasts in my family. Their regular menu is large and full of great stuff. Their specials are really special! Stuffed French toast, feta omlets, delicious muffins, and best of all--good coffee. Sometimes they even have a dark... More

I just randomly stopped in. Sat at the counter. Great group of girls working there. Attentive with your service and refilled my coffee as I like it. This is the 1st place I've been to where they asked how I liked my potatoes and hash cooked. Where as you usually have to request how you like it. The only thing... More

Honestly, I don't know where to start, The environment has a quaint, small town vibe when you're inside. It makes for a fresh, home cooked meal type of feel. The food is delicious! Every time I go, I try something different and I have never been disappointed. The toast, is amazing! (I know, you're thinking, its toast. How could that... More

Stopped in on a road trip for a late breakfast. Greeted by very friendly staff who went out of their way for us and a large party seated next to us. Blueberry pancakes very good and hit the spot. Would stop in again if I were in the area for breakfast or lunch.
