Milford Center came back to life almost a decade ago, and the centerpiece here is the duck pond and City Hall constructed to resemble Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home. The Corner Restaurant is an unforgettable cutie with a breakfast menu that is off-the-charts creative. Along with the usual suspects (like the scratch-made buttermilk blueberry pancakes I had) is the Portobello Florentine, poached eggs resting on portobello mushrooms, spinach, and English muffins, all smothered with Hollandaise. The selections are endless and each made with care. I dined with everyday regular Tom Delisle whose favorites include the strawberry & banana stuffed French Toast and an eggwhite omelet with sweet potato hash.

Server Marc Nobel deserves a prize for his skills, and the effervescent owners Michelle and hubby, Amer Lebel, both cook and love to coo over their customers. The lunch menu is also wildly creative.

Bite of the Best
Review by Bonnie

My friend Diane and I like to catch up over Sunday brunch — generally trying new places but sometimes returning to ones we’ve liked. We returned to The Corner (Milford, CT) — a cozy place filled with regulars (we know as we chatted with many of them while waiting for a table).

When asked what’s good, one of the regulars said, “Everything!” This regular has been coming for years and had worked his way down the menu, trying each and every unusual offering on it.

Their brunch items are a bit different than the regular omelets and pancakes usually found — although you can order those, too. This time we tried poached eggs over a flavorful corned beef sweet potato hash (a soft hash with diced bacon, sausage and onion), $8.95 — and the flaky French flatbread stuffed with sauteed spinach, scrambled eggs, caramelized onions and smoked gouda. A nice homestyle place for brunch.
