Brunch in Mystic Should be the Staple of Your Day When Visiting

If you’re planning a day in Mystic, CT, you want to make sure you’re fully charged to have the energy to see everything Mystic has to offer. This means eating a good meal to get you going or to help you make it through the rest of your day. Brunch in Mystic at Chapter One is the perfect solution for amazing food at a convenient location.

Let’s take a look at some places you’ll want to explore during your visit to Mystic as well as some great menu options when you stop at Chapter One Food & Drink for brunch.

Places to Visit in Mystic

If you’re spending the day in Mystic, there are some “must visit” places that you have to put on your list. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Mystic Aquarium

For the young and the young at heart, you have to make a stop at Mystic Aquarium. The aquarium is home to whales, penguins, sea lions, and so much more. You can even catch a live seal show during your visit.

Kids love the habitat that allows them to touch several species of sharks. Adults may love it too! The beluga whales are also a fan favorite as you watch them swim and learn more about them.

Mystic Seaport Museum

Another stop to put on your list is Mystic Seaport Museum. The museum is home to numerous exhibits of century-old ships as well as artwork with seafarer themes.

One of the most popular parts of the museum is the section that houses historic vessels. You can actually climb aboard these ships which helps to bring them to life.  Mystic Seaport is home to the world’s last surviving wooden whaleship as well as the Charles W. Morgan. This is the last example of early 20th-century New England fishing vessels.

Olde Mistick Village

Another popular place to visit, especially if you like to shop, is Olde Mistick Village. This is a quaint spot where you can walk around the little village and pop in and out of stores with everything from hand-crafted gifts to high-fashion jewelry. You’ll also find shops that sell Mystic souvenirs, Christmas decorations, international treasures, and more.

These are just a few of the many fun things Mystic has to offer. There’s so much to do and see that you’ll definitely want to make more than one visit!

Brunch in Mystic at Chapter One

Whether you stop for brunch in Mystic before visiting any of those hot spots or eat in between to recharge, Chapter One has something for everyone. Our brunch menu includes delicious items like the Chapter One Omelet with three eggs, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, Chapter One home fries, and your choice of toast.  The Chapter One Eggs Benedict is also a crowd-pleaser. Choose from Filet Mignon or hot buttered lobster meat on a toasted English muffin, two poached eggs, and classic Hollandaise sauce, served with Chapter One home fries.

You also can’t go wrong with stuffed French toast. We take two slices of thick-cut bread, stuff them with maple brown sugar cream cheese, and serve them with real maple syrup and whipped cream. When you’re looking for something a little lighter, the breakfast parfait is a winner. Tasty whipped Greek yogurt is combined with house-made fruit compote and granola and topped with whipped cream.

If you’re visiting a little later in the day and want more of a lunch influence in your meal, you can’t go wrong with the Chapter One Brunch Burger.  We take an 8-ounce Black Angus beef burger, add smoked bacon, Chapter One sauce, cheddar jack cheese, caramelized onions, sunny-side egg, lettuce, tomatoes, and Chapter One home fries. The Caprese Salad is also a big hit with its fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, EVOO & balsamic glaze.

Chapter One Food & Drink is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Mystic just past the Mystic Drawbridge. This is the perfect location for when you’re sightseeing at any of the spots we mentioned and want to start your day with a great meal or just take a break. There are no worries when you choose Chapter One because there’s something on the menu for everyone!
