If you go in on the weekends for breakfast, expect a line. It'll move pretty fast and the pancakes are worth the wait. Friendly staff. Accommodating to special food requests.

My husband and I were traveling by car from Maine to Connecticut and wanted to find a good place to eat before going to our hotel (the Westbrook Resort and Spa). We are diehard trip advisor users to help steer us in the right direction. We were going to go to Cafe Routier, rated #1 but my husband didn't want... More

Food is good, I think it is all home made. I've had breakfast there many times on weekends. It gets VERY crowded yet the tables turn over fairly quickly - you may have a challenge parking. Pancakes are wonderful - many different choices - typically one is enough for me. They do have real maple syrup (extra cost for that... More

Christy's offers a very large breakfast menu and all items that we watch coming out of the kitchen look great! However, everytime we go I get the pancake with the berry crunch, which is delicious and the size of a dinner plate. Two others in our party also ordered pancakes and another ordered a waffle. Everyone was very pleased with... More

Cristy's is a throw back luncheonette - actually from 1957 and not much has changed. For breakfast, go early, especially on weekends - during the summer the lines will be out the door. The food is great and the portions are huge, honest.. I ordered 2 eggs scrambled with corn beef hash. The eggs must have come from an elephant,... More

We were staying down the road at Water's Edge and did not want to eat at the resort's restaurant on checkout day. We decided to look for somewhere to have a leisurely breakfast. We noticed many cars in the Christy's parking lot and a sign promising breakfast, so we decided to take a chance. Upon entering, we notice the long... More

My family and I enjoy going to Christie's, and the restaurant is always busy. They have a few dozen types of pancakes (which are HUGE), and they can mix-and-match if you have something else in mind. They also offer any of the dishes you would expect from a breakfast place, and everything is made fresh. The only complaint I have... More

I stopped here on the way to Newport and had the best breakfast I have had in years. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was great.
