Best Brunch Near New Haven, CT

Meat and Veggies


Having already given you our favorite restaurant recommendations and best spots for pizza in the Old Saybrook, where do we go from here? Brunch, of course! Below, you’ll find the very best brunch in New Haven, CT—or so we feel. Remember, the Old Saybrook Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM team may not be professional food reviewers, but we do use the term “foodies” a lot.

Shell and Bones

Shell and Bones Oyster Bar and Grill (100 S Water St, New Haven, CT 06519) sits on the edge of New Haven Harbor, offering fantastic views to accompany the restaurant’s fantastic dishes. You can’t go wrong with any of the seafood offerings, from raw oysters to shrimp and scallops. For brunch specifically, if you’re looking for the best brunch in New Haven experience, you need to try are the Eggs Benedict Oscar with crab cake, hollandaise, and Old Bay home fries on the side. With that said, the lobster rolls are some of the best in Connecticut.


Firebox (539 Broad Street, Hartford, CT) focuses on local fare, offering visitors sausages, cheese, bread, and vegetables from Connecticut farms. Located in the Frog Hollow neighborhood of Hartford, the Sunday brunch offerings dazzle with tasty French toast and bloody marys with bacon-salted rims (for the adults who didn’t drive). The Buttermilk Fried Chicken, served with maple sausage gravy and pickles, will hit the spot.

Bella’s Cafe

For the past two decades, Bella’s has worked hard to bring New Orleans-inspired treats to New Haven. Their work has paid off: the food at Bella’s Cafe (896 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT) has led to one of the best Sunday brunch in New Haven experiences, with lines going out the door. Expect brunch staples like Eggs Benedict, along with less-traditional but still tasty concoctions. One favorite: Roasted Chicken Crepes, which are stuffed with rotisserie chicken, cheese, corn and cilantro, and then topped with a Poblano cream sauce and a fried egg.

Barracuda Bistro and Bar

A cozy, Latin-inspired restaurant that will happily steal your Sunday from you with a fantastic bottomless brunch in New Haven experience, Barracuda Bistro and Bar (1180 Chapel St, New Haven, CT) is a must-try for any Connecticut resident. Chef Sonia Salazar, who grew up in Colombia, has combined Latin America flavor with traditional American food, with staples like BBQ Pulled Pork Arepas (a sort of tortilla pancake with pulled pork), and the Chorizo Mac ‘n’ Cheese. Finally, they have bottomless mango mimosas. Best brunch in New Haven, CT? Quite possibly.
