"Mo's is proudest of its home fries, and they are cause for admiration. Cut into extra large hunks and seasoned with brio, they are kept warm in a huge heap on the griddle in the dining room open-kitchen. Whenever the grill man finishes an omelet or an order of eggs, he ..."   [Read More]

"I stopped at Mo's Midtown in Hartford last Saturday morning for first time in many years. Don't know why it took so long to go back. I had blueberry pancakes and bacon, a friend had eggs over easy, homefries and toast. The blueberry pancakes are to die for! Each ..."   [Read More]

Hot off the griddle, this buttermilk 3-stack is still smoking. Their shape is irregular and their color muted, but these are magnificent pancakes.

We love the view from Mo's counter: a mountain of hash browns on the grill, ready to be loaded onto plates alongside eggs and omelets.

Not far from I-84 in a strip mall alongside a nail salon, Mo's is a small gem that is treasured by Connecticut breakfast hounds.

Served four to an order, Mo's potato pancakes are shatteringly crisp on the outside, but that crust encloses a creamy center with rich potato flavor. In the background, of course, are sour cream and apple sauce.

This was the view from my counter seat at Mo's: a heap of semi-cooked bacon, ready to heat and serve. It's not my favorite way of bacon preparation, but I asked for an order well-done, meaning it spent extra time under the bacon press and got good and crisp. Still, flavor-wise, these strips aren't among the greats.

Robots made of tin cans used to populate Mo's brick walls above the booths. On a recent visit, we noted they had been replaced by two-dimensional art.
