Our last day in Massachusetts, we headed over to Rockport and had lunch at the lovely Brackett's Oceanview Restaurant, 25 Main Street, Rockport. They seated us in a window and we had a lovely view of the ocean. The food was delicious - I went for the burger and my co-worker had a salad with shrimp. It was a lovely lunch.
Rockport (and it's tiny section called Bear Skin Neck) is a sweet little town with lots of shops, restaurants and such, but be warned - parking is very limited and the streets are narrow but you won't regret the visit.
On our way home, we finally figured out what is the halfway point between our hotel and my co-worker's home - it is Plainville Connecticut where she found us this lovely diner for breakfast. There is so much to say - I don't know where to start! The Main Street Diner, 40 West Main Street Plainville, CT, has to be the cleanest diner I have ever had the pleasure to visit. I think we could have eaten off the bathroom floor, except it is a small bathroom! Not a speck of dust anywhere in the place! The service was terrific - she was fast and fun to chat with while we had our breakfast (not that she ignored her other customers - because she did not. I can tell they get a LOT of regulars there which is always a good sign!).
But the food - I ordered a short stack of pancakes and you can see what I got - I think there was two pancakes but I couldn't tell from the volume of strawberries and whipped cream on top! It was heaven on a plate! My co-worker loves egg white omelets with lots of veggies and they did not disappoint her! She really enjoy her breakfast, too! The coffee was delicious as well!
It was the perfect place to stop on our journey. It wasn't too far off the highway and it is a lovely small town - street parking was definitely the way to go (and we did!). Once again - many thanks to my coworker for the outside photo!
