In the area for a wedding. Met relatives for breakfast. Promptly greeted and seated upstairs. Very pleasant server. Food arrived quickly. Was fairly good, certainly ample portions. Definitely worth a trip.

This is the perfect place to bring a family. There is something for everyone including the gluten free and vegetarians. I especially enjoy the magnificent breakfasts which are enormous and delicious.

I've never seen anyone with a dog there before. But, you can always call them and say you are traveling with your dog. 203-264-9190. I'm sure they'll accommodate you and your dog.
