167 Danbury Road, Wilton
For some reason, this diner attracts successful, sometimes well-known businessmen who sit in small clutches eating breakfast on weekends wearing wrinkled khakis and button-down oxford shirts. It’s kind of odd seeing a crowd of middle-aged men having Saturday brunch together instead of throngs of families with screaming charges. Although, it did create a much calmer atmosphere than most diners and any noise my crowd made was amplified and more embarrassing than usual.
Robin’s note: We all love the jar of free butter mints near the register (the “help yourself” policy makes it even better.)
Who you’ll see eating here: Mostly men in the morning, ages 40-85
Their specialty: Pancakes, bacon and eggs.
What you should order: Pancakes and omelets.
What you may not know but should: If you photograph yourself in or around Orem’s, they’ll scan it into their website and send the original back to you.
