Connecticut's top Sunday gathering spot is fast becoming the Old Lyme Inn, where each week we offer a scrumptious brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Enjoy lobster eggs benedict, poached salmon with crab and chive hollandaise, or malted silver dollar pancakes with berries and Vermont maple syrup. Our talented chefs prepare entrees that emphasize locally grown and deliciously fresh produce, meat, and seafood. Our wine and cocktail list changes with the seasons as well. The restaurant is part of our historic inn, originally built in 1856 and recently restored, preserving the 19th-century New England charm and adding all the modern amenities. Music lovers make this a weekend trip, arriving Saturday night to catch the top names in jazz at our Sidedoor jazz club.

Award-winning brunch in a scenic waterside setting a classic combination
Want to get a taste of what Yankee Magazine has called the Best Sunday Brunch? Call the Fresh Salt restaurant at the Saybrook Point Resort & Marina, and prepare to be amazed. Fresh pastries, local seafood, bountiful salads and decadent desserts are just part of what awaits you. There are also stations upon stations: carving, pasta – and waffles! (It’s a judgment-free zone for those who want both breakfast and lunch.) Fresh and seasonal ingredients are key to the many offerings, since Fresh Salt is committed to local farmers and food artisans. And the restaurant’s setting is as delightful as its menus, with breathtaking views of Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River. It’s an absolutely lovely place to spend your Sunday.
Fabulous Hunt Breakfast one more reason this Connecticut inn is famous
It’s “the most famous brunch in Connecticut,” according to The New York Times. But at The Griswold Inn, which opened its doors during the Revolutionary War, Sunday brunch is more than that: It’s tradition. The famous Hunt Breakfast at “The Gris” began when the British commandeered the inn during the War of 1812. Today, it is still a royal feast, featuring a varied menu that might include baked cornbread and scones, stations for omelets and Belgian waffles, salads, pasta, herb-roasted chicken, baked cod – and a pecan and caramel French toast souffle and chocolate brownie pudding. It’s beautiful to look at, set amid the warm splendor of the historic inn, and even more of a treat to sit down, pick up a fork – and enjoy.
