You know the old saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well if it is, then you want it to be good, no, you want it to be the best.

The actual reason breakfast is so important is the nourishment that you get actually energizes you to power through the first part of your day. But that's not all, some days, just the smell of a good breakfast can be the one thing that get's you out of bed.

For folks in the Waterbury area, they can basically roll out of bed and find themselves enjoying the best breakfast in Connecticut at  the Brooklyn Baking Company.

So I'm sure you’re wondering, out of all the breakfast spots in Connecticut, just who determined that the Brooklyn Baking Company was the best?

First off the folks at joined forces with Yelp and listed the top two or three breakfast spots in each state. Then one restaurant from each state was chosen using algorithm's that looked at the number of reviews and star ratings, plus cuisine types, and price range were also taken into consideration.

So what makes the Brooklyn Baking Company so good, one word "Donuts."

According to reviews on, people can't get enough of the donuts at Brooklyn Baking Company, but that's not all that Brooklyn Baking's menu has to offer. More traditional wake up food like their breakfast sandwich (two eggs, cheese, and your choice of meat) on a Portuguese roll should hit the spot if you'd prefer a little more substance to your morning meal.
