They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it's likely that there are a few who would argue that brunch is the most important. After all, it's brunch that helps people get their weekends off to a great start and it's brunch that combines two meals into one.

One of the toughest things about brunch is deciding what to order. Buffets take that decision problem out of the equation by letting you have whatever you want, all for a fixed price. On Sundays, the Adams Mill restaurant offers a brunch buffet, with seatings starting at 10:30 a.m. The buffet menu offers pretty much everything you'd want to have for breakfast or lunch, including a waffle station, fruit station, omelet station and carving bar, plus dessert and beverages.
The buffet is available for $24 for adults, $19 for teenagers (13-17) and $9 for kids (3-12). Reservations are accepted until 1:15 p.m. and the restaurant asks that you limit your brunch experience to two hours, so that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy it.
Over in South Windsor, the Mill on the River serves a Sunday brunch for $19.95 per person. When you order brunch at the Mill, you get a choice of two cocktails, tea or coffee, and a choice of an entree. You also get a selection of pastries and other small snacks from a buffet. Brunch is on offer from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
On weekends, the Landmark cafe extends its usual breakfast service until 1 p.m. The cafe's brunch options range from stuffed French toast to huevos rancheros. It also serves a selection of starters for those who are not particularly hungry, such as fruit and granola, muffins, and scones. It also has a full selection of espresso drinks and coffee.
Another cafe worth checking out for brunch is Center Perk. The cafe offers a full selection of breakfast dishes, including a wide variety of eggs benedict.
