Brunch Blues

The one thing the FFC area, especially Greenwich, is lacking is great breakfast spots! Growing up we used to frequent the Driftwood Diner in Darien almost every weekend. Housed in a trailer, with a grill that probably hadn't been cleaned in 25 years, they had the most delicious, authentic diner food! Then they upgraded and moved into a real restaurant, and while good, it was just never the same.

This place isn't a greasy spoon but it's one of the few places in Greenwich that offers good, inexpensive breakfast in a nice atmosphere. The Cos Cobber is located at 31 East Putnam Ave in Cos Cob. Serving breakfast from 7-11 on weekdays and 8-1 on weekends (one of my friends with a baby noted it's one of the few places that you can get breakfast in town early) their prices are actually incredible reasonable for the area. Two eggs with toast and home fries will run you just $4.50, a steal! They also make great omelets, pancakes and french toast. Unfortunately we tried them once for dinner and it wasn't a home run, so for now we're just going to promote their great breakfast!

We love eating breakfast at the bar with a mimosa!

I also thought it would be fun to start sharing what's coming up on the blog next week!

Fingers crossed for some snow on Saturday. I have new Sorel boots that could use some love!
