Sugar Bowl, 1033 Post Road, Darien, CT
I knew breakfast at the Sugar Bowl in Darien must be good, because they have been around for over 65 years, and it was! We’re lucky we got there early, because soon it was packed with kids and adults who come for the food and the cool decorations!
Sugar Bowl does an awesome job of decorating the restaurant, and right now there are Halloween decorations up. And when it comes to decorating, they really mean business!!! And I’m not just talking about a paper skeleton and a few pumpkins — they have over a hundred decorations just hanging from the ceiling including pumpkins, bats, witches, skeletons and lots of spider webs.
And the food is just as good as the decorations. I had a short stack of pancakes, which were very fluffy, so fluffy that you don’t even have to chew them (but you should), bacon, which was really good and crispy and a sausage patty. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that the chocolate milk was not freshly made — but — at least, it was the organic kind
I asked our server Flor, “Does Sugar Bowl decorate for every holiday?”
She said, “Yes, we decorate for Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s, Easter, July 4th, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! — All the big holidays.”
I also asked her, “What is the most popular breakfast with kids?”
Flor said “The short stack of pancakes with a smiley face is the most popular”
Next time I’ll make sure to ask for a smiley face on my short stack!
Something else that Sugar Bowl is famous for is Brian’s Homemade Lemon Cake definitely try this when you visit. Dad and I got some to go and it’s really AWESOME — it’s super sweet but it’s also sour and it’s really dense — YUM!!!!!
