Need really good breakfast place in Danbury, CT

I'm looking for a fantastic breakfast place in Danbury (and only Danbury). It can be a hole in the wall or a hidden gem, but it shouldn't cost too much or be fancy--we'll have 2 two year olds with us.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  1. I know it's not in Danbury, but The American Pie Company is just a short drive north to Sherman.

    Best breakfast around imho.

    1. I grew up in Danbury, and I'd have to recommend the Windmill Diner. It's your typical Greek Diner, but it's really reliable and I make it a point to go back there every time I visit my folks.

      Their omelettes and home fries are great.

        My husband worked there in high school! Windmill would be a great breakfast spot in Danbury.

      2. Once again, I know you said Danbury but I don't think you'll find what you are looking for in Danbury unless you want a diner. Brookfield is very close and Rickyls has a very nice breakfast, isn't fancy and is child friendly. It's at 800 Federal Rd next to Rocco's restaurant. They are open Tuesday-Sunday until 2PM.

            I'm afraid I have to un-recommend this place after an unpleasant experience.

          2. The Alley Diner, Ives St off of White St, in Danbury.
            Small place, food is always good, always fresh. Good place for 2-year-olds and 102-year-olds.
