Buffet brunch Orange, CT area...w/kids?

Brens Mom Mar 4, 2008 05:25 AM

Our favorite brunch to go to when we're taking the kids was Dakota's in Milford but it's recently closed. We're having family in town on 3/16 and would all like to go to brunch together, preferably not too far. I was hopeful that the Bear and Grille would be a good sub but the only reviews I've seen so far (on Trip Advisor) aren't promising. ]

Would love any suggestions, thanks!

    If your crew is adventurous, Coromandel on route 1 has an excellent Indian brunch.

        Thanks for the suggestion! It looks awesome to me and I will definitely try it one day...but the rest of my crew (except my 2 year old who's definitely mama's boy when it comes to being a foodie!) wants regular ol' american type breakfast/brunch fare.

          and it looked like thet have a great buffet brunch

      The Brunch at Bear and grille is fantastic. There are many choices ranging from breakfast to salmon to prime rib. All done very well. I would recomend this restaurant to anyone and I eat at alot of restaurants across the region.

        I ditto simalibim. While I am not a fan of Bear and Grille for lunch/dinner, their brunch is fantastic and the staff are very pleasant and accommodating. We recently went with a party of 19 for my son's baptism and it was great. They also have a room for party of 25+--on our last visit, there was actually a small wedding taking place in that room with the brunch afterward. I, like mmalmad, above also think Brewhouse in SONO looks good for brunch but I have not yet been. Also, have heard that La Luna in Branford has good brunch, but also have not personally been.

        it may be 'below' the snobs on this board, but hometown buffet opens early in the morning on weekends.
