I have searched the chowhound.com boards for great breakfast/brunch places in the Hartford area (or within 25 mile radius). I have a group of friends and we have gotten into Sunday Brunch gathering mode.
We've tried some good places:
Emporium in Middletown (yum yum)
Pond House in Elizabeth Park in West Hartford (excellent)
Mill on the River in South Windsor (lots of food)
Gelston House in East Haddam (beautiful view)
Cosmic Omelette in Manchester (yum)
And we are about to try:
Johnny Pasco's in East Windsor
Pepper Pot in Southington.
If you have found a great breakfast/brunch place, please share. I've only seen posts about the shoreline or near Northampton MA, not many for Central CT.
