Brunch in this beautiful historic inn features thoroughly modern array of delights
An impressive brunch in an impressive inn: That’s the famous Hunt Breakfast, served Sundays at the remarkable Griswold Inn. This sumptuous buffet offers an array of breakfast and lunch entrees, including made-to-order Belgian waffles, fresh salads and desserts. And, there’s live music. Called the most famous brunch in Connecticut by The New York Times, the tradition for this bountiful spread began when the British commandeered the inn during the War of 1812. The charms of days gone by are evident throughout the inn, which opened in 1776, from its collection of maritime art to its wood floors and beams. (Check the inn’s website for changes and updates and the inn navigates new health and safety guidelines.)

Bountiful brunch in a restaurant with a breathtaking view is a highlight at this elegant resort
Sunday brunch at Fresh Salt, Saybrook Point Resort & Marina’s on-site restaurant, with a breathtaking water view, is not to be missed. You’ll want to visit the omelet station (make sure you try the local breakfast sausage or applewood smoked bacon) and the waffle station, which includes gluten-free options. Maybe you want a breakfast pastry: a muffin, amaretto scone or chocolate croissant. If you’re in more of a lunch mood, there’s an elegant array of salads, soups and stations for pasta and carved meats including black Angus prime rib and maple-cured roasted turkey. Don’t forget the dessert table where you’ll have to choose between a cannoli, cake pop or fresh-baked cookie. And of course there are Bloody Marys, mimosas and Bellinis.
