Wedding weekend in Morristown, NJ

I'm headed to a family wedding in Morristown, NJ in September, and I need some help with eating recommendations!

What I'm looking for, based on our "plans" below:

- A yummy breakfast and/or brunch spot - this crew is big into healthy eating, fresh preparations and they buy organic at home.

- If it is sunny, we're planning on going for a walk (thinking Jockey Hollow -- also, taking recommendations for a outdoor all-ages friendly activity/walk). Thus, we'd need a box lunch or picnic. Is there a gourmet deli or food shop or caterer that makes box lunches or tasty veggie-heavy sandwiches?

- if it rains, we need a place for lunch - cozy, perfect for a fall rainy day indoor lunch that can accomodate about 15 people.

- Best sunday brunch spots?

Thank you all in advance for your help -- couldn't find what I was looking for on the boards!

  1. I don't really have specific recommendations, but I know the feeling of going somewhere for and having no sense of where to eat!

    You could try this...

    Sorry couldn't be more helpful!

    1. Re:Jockey Hollow. This place is a few miles south of the south entrance of JH on 202, so it's a bit out of the way but definitely worth it!

      Re: Sunday brunch. This is also a bit out of the way (not quite as far) and a bit pricey but good:

        1. I've been a Morristown resident for 3+ years and here are my best suggestions...

          For your picnic, you can't get any better than C'est Cheese, located on South Street, near the intersection with Pine. It's a family-owned establishment that makes almost everything fresh on site. They have prepared foods, sandwiches, breakfast goodies and more. I'm a vegetarian and I can always find plenty of options there.

          There's also the Health Shoppe on Morris Street that offers lots of sandwiches and prepared foods to go! Definitely plenty of organic options.

          I like C'est Cheese for brunch too, but you can also try the Morristown Deli on Elm Street or for a calorie splurge, try the Artist Baker on Cattano. On Sunday mornings, there is a Farmer's Market in town, close to the Green that runs from 8:30-2:30. You can grab all the fresh veggies and fruits you'll need!

          And for an indoor rainy lunch spot, you can try Caffe India on Washington Street, The Famished Frog on South Street or this Asian place on South Street that I forget the name of. I think they do lunch.

          Good luck and enjoy Morristown!
