Breakfast/Brunch between Waterbury and Danbury

I need a place to have Breakfast/Brunch with about 10 people on Sunday morning somewhere between Waterbury and Danbury. It can't be anything too expensive or formal. A diner with good, reliable fare would be fine.

  1. Leo's in Southbury might fit the bill. Not sure if they take reservations and can be crowded.

    There is also Heritage Deli/Cafe at Heritage Village. Counter service only but decent breakfast and pastries; more casual...throw some tables together for your group.

    1. King's in Monroe on 25 (exit 9)has a great breakfast/brunch too. It's on the Newtown side of Monroe.

        King's is in Newtown, closer to Exit 11. They do not take reservations and can get crowded. If you want to go there, take Exit 11 off 84. Make a left at the end of the ramp/at the light. Follow Mile Hill Rd/Wasserman Way to the end. Turn left at the light on to Rt. 25. Follow about 2.5 miles. King's will be on the left shortly past the shopping center with Stop and Shop.

        There is an adequate diner right off Exit 10 called Blue Colony Diner. It can seat all of you and may be easier to get a table there than at King's or Leo's.

      2. The Inn at Newtown has a Sunday brunch from 11 am to 2 pm that is very good and reasonably priced. Their website is Also, Maggie McFly's in Southbury, right off Exit 14 on 84, has a Sunday brunch. I've never been, so I don't know how the food is or the cost, but I believe they have a website as well. Both those places could accomodate your group of 10, and I bet they'd take a reservation.

        1. Inn at Newtown is great. But I would steer away from the Blue Colony Diner ... definitely greasy (though inexpensive).
