This is the best breakfast place in CT! The food is amazing. They offer about 100 different types of pancakes. I've tried a bunch and haven't had one yet that I haven't loved. The staff is very friendly as well. Great place!

They are currently closed due to a fire but went every Saturday for breakfast. Pancakes are awesome. Omelets delicious. Best burgers I have ever had. Can't wait till they reopen.

Not only the best tasting but the biggest and best selection. And that's not all--a large bar and an excellent dinner/after movie menu with the besst burgers around. Finish the meal off with a short walk to the seawall on Long Island Sound.

Just like Westbrook Christie's this place is amazing. Bring a big appetite as the food is excellent and plentiful. Outstanding pancakes, breakfast meats and egg selections. A "must experience" location.

The dining area can seat about 20 comfortably. There is additional seating in the bar. I would call Cristy's for specifics.
