Brunch offers a taste of heaven in a glorious atmosphere right by the water

Sunday brunch at the Saybrook Point Resort & Marina’s Fresh Salt restaurant is a dining experience not to be missed, and not just for the waterfront views. Brunch at the resort, where the Connecticut River merges with Long Island Sound, has something for everyone, from starters of international cheeses, seasonal fruits and smokehouse specialties to fresh salads, a raw bar with locally harvested clams and oysters (and seafood ceviche) and entrees to please every palate. If you’re in the mood for breakfast food, there are waffle and omelette stations and eggs Benedict. If lunch is more your thing, there are seasonal soups and dishes. You might find blackened swordfish, paella – or barbecued ribs St. Louis style. And desserts and bake shop specialties are simply divine.

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.
