~(‾▿‾)~ Eggcellent Easter Brunch + Dinner Spots in Fairfield County (=^_^=)

Brunchmazing at SoNo Baking Company

We are in the process of updating listings for Easter 2015! 

*Tweet tweet* Spring has sprung and the smell of brunch is in the air.  Brunch, one of the most awesome meals of the day.  Better than breakfast and better than lunch:  it is a combination of the best of both worlds.  Sweet, savory, eggy, bready, and meaty.  We’re not talking about just any brunch, though…Easter brunch, one of the best dining days of the year.  Well, we hopped from site to site, from e-mail to e-mail, and restaurant to restaurant and found some great spots for brunch.  Make sure to make reservations, though.  If you have a suggestion for a place that we left off, let us know.  We’ll add it for the benefit of all mankind.
