Why Go: CIA grads Shannon McKinney and Brian Doyle’s motto: “All you need is love and brunch.” You can tell that someplace is the local go-to when it starts naming brunch dishes for customers – like the crispy, fatty Judge Malone hash topped with an egg and served in a skillet, and Jerry Aron’s Favorite, a soup made to order with sautéed shrimp and scallops in a sauterne-leek cream. Aron was an elderly New York City resident who would send a car service up the Taconic to Pawling to fetch a quart whenever he had a craving for fresh seafood.

Worth Waking Up For : Because McKinney & Doyle is also a bakery, you know their pastry and breads are made from scratch. American actor and the unmistakable voice of Darth Vader, James Earl Jones, has been spotted lingering over a omelette or two there. And when you can have fresh muffins -- and celebrities on the side -- what better recipe for an unforgettable brunch?

When: Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Prix Fixe? No. Menu items are individually priced.
