Always a stop when traveling through Connecticut. Breakfast Sampler, Breakfast Burrito and omelettes are great basics. Pierogi special is legendary. Endless gourmet coffee - with to-go cups for later!

Homey and friendly, with creative menu choices and reasonable prices. Outside seating in season. We visit several times a year and are never disappointed. Have not been there for lunch.
