This is a wonderful place for breakfast or brunch. A full menu that is creative and has your old favorite. A bottomless cup of coffee at first. I had a traditional breakfast and a very good value. When Pigs fly is barely noticeable in town but extremely busy and popular.

Wonderful omelets! An interesting and delectable breakfast menu. Really nice servers!!!! A great selection of coffees and teas...bottomless cups... and they even allow you to take some to go! It is somewhat off the beaten track for a non-local, but well worth the effort to find. Be on the lookout. The sign is small (the building houses a few offices... More

Kids seem to like this place, but to me it is just so-so. It is small often crowded and doesn't seem to be the cleanest spot in town. You have to get your own coffee and the muffins and coffee are much better at Dunkin Donuts.

Always a stop when traveling through Connecticut. Breakfast Sampler, Breakfast Burrito and omelettes are great basics. Pierogi special is legendary. Endless gourmet coffee - with to-go cups for later!

Homey and friendly, with creative menu choices and reasonable prices. Outside seating in season. We visit several times a year and are never disappointed. Have not been there for lunch.

In an area without a ton of options for breakfast, When Pigs Fly is an interesting somewhat quirky choice. Some odd customs, such as serve yourself coffee, make it an interesting experience. The space is tight and the wait was well over an hour on Labor Day Monday. It was too chilly (for most) to eat outside so the wait... More

I had the Best Hamburger I have ever tasted anywhere!!! It was done to perfection! It was juicy and tasty, exactly the way a hamburger should be, only better! The cook, Jeffrey deserves accolades for this! The waitresses are very sweet, and a really different idea they have, is to have different coffee carafes out, so that you can serve... More

Worth the wait! And the coffee is self serve, so you can have it while you wait! Amazing everything and terrific if you have a table for 15. They make it work!
