Readers' Choice: Best Hangover Venue

In anticipation of St. Patrick's Day, where's the best place for an alcohol-fighting breakfast?

On the first day of this year, I headed into town for brunch at . Sometime during my stay at the counter, the waitress came over to refill my coffee and found me absorbed in a book I'd brought along.

"Well look at you!" she grinned. "Everyone else in here is nursing hangovers and you're just sitting here reading quietly."

Well, that was half-true. It's not like I was reading loudly, but I hadn't let New Year's Eve go by without a drink or two. A meal of eggs and bacon and butter-drenched toast and homefries is tempting enough on its own, but it's certainly needed a bit more if you spent too much time the night before with your .

Granted, this could easily be a "best eggs" poll among our readers given that this food has an amino acid that is especially helpful in breaking down toxins. But there are also pancakes, coffee, and maybe sympathetic staffers to consider.

We've rounded up the places on our directory that include breakfast on their menu. If you tied one on the night before and need a place to recover, where's your top pick?

I love Goldys! ! I've been there for every meal and I've always been happy. my waitresses were friendly efficient and answered all my questions. I thought the food was great. I'm not sure what happened with Suzanne and Jeff but I think You two should give them one more shot... they def are worth it.

I've read these comments with great interest and was shocked that their was no mention of Jack's Place. What better cure for a hangover or for that matter staple of any great breakfast fails to include baked beans? Sitting at Jack's as a boy for the first time with the Heap's, I was appalled to be offered beans with my french toast. After a heated argument with both Joe's (owner and best friend's dad), I was told to just eat the damn beans (the implied threat from Joe Heap if I embarrassed him, slightly more menacing, than Joe's "what kind of idiot turns down my beans). Eat the damn beans I did and few decisions in my life turned out to be as wise, as Joe H paid for the breakfast and my order of a second bowl ensured Joe continued to serve me his beans for years to come. Joe leaving Jack's for retirement was a blow that this city has never recovered from. Until someone in New London can ladle me up a bowl of bean's even half as good as Jack's Place, the question of best breakfast or great hangover remedy will be a question with no definitive answer.

Most definitely! The Upper Deck is the only place to go for a meal to save you from your hangover woes! The service is awesome as well as the food! Craig is a great cook! Trust me I couldn't love a man who didn't know how to make breakfast! :D

The Upper Deck has the best French Toast & Waffles in New London! Chef Craig is the only cook who will never let you go away hungry! He is the BEST just like the Upper Deck if your hungry or have a hangover.
