Orem’s Serves A Breakfast Big Enough For A Lumberjack… But Good For Kids Too!

Orem’s Diner, 167 Danbury Road, Wilton CT


Orem’s has been serving Wilton and other towns great food since 1921!  I’ve been going to Orem’s since I was a baby.

Orem’s is very popular with kids and adults, so, if you go on a weekend morning, be prepared to wait for a table… but the wait won’t be very long, and it will be worth it.

Their menu is HUGE and there are lots of different delicious choices for breakfast.

I had the “Lumberjack” breakfast, which is 3 Pancakes, Two Eggs (I had mine scrambled), Bacon, 2 Sausages AND… a slice of Ham!  It as BIG enough for a Lumberjack – and I could barely finish it!  The chocolate milk was freshly made and cold!

I asked the manager, Chris Papanikolaou, whose family owns Orem’s, how many eggs does Orem’s use on a Sunday:

He said “Wow, a lot, during a typical week, we go through 20 X 60 cases of eggs

That ‘s a lot of eggs!

Mr. Chris also told me that pancakes are the most popular item on the menu for kids.

Orem’s has a great website with has lots of cool stuff about its history — they were even once in a Hi and Lois Sunday Comic in the newspaper! So definitely check it out!

  1. Once again, a very tantalizing review. . . wish I were in Wilton, but it is sunny and 75 degrees here in Los Angeles, so I can’t be too sad.

  2. Hi Alex, we love Orem’s too! I love diners, and I think your blog Is great! I really like the ratings of the bathrooms since that is something I find important. Keep up the good work!
    Have you tried Blue Colony Diner in Newtown? They make great fries with gravy!
