Best Breakfast/Brunch places in Central CT
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.

I love the Harvest Bakery and Cafe on Route 10 in Simsbury. It's casual and they make tons of baked goods. Their menu makes me drool (fritatas, waffles...pretty much everything you can think of).
For something small but good--Quaker Diner on Park Road in West Hartford is very solid as is Olympia Diner on the Berlin Turnpick (they have the best corned beef hash).
Two more for you: Rizzutos in Blue Back Square (in W. Hartford Center) has a nice Sunday brunch and I also like the Stone Well in Farmington for a pretty big brunch (lots of stations with omelets, carving...even a chocolate fountain.)

jumping on the Harvest bandwagon, although nobody has warned you about the line, which can stretch out of the cafe onto the sidewalk. be patient, dress warmly, bring coffee & enjoy!
