Bruegger's Bagels Open on Crosby Street

Danbury has a new breakfast and lunch spot a half block from Main on Crosby.

Bruegger’s Bagels opened at 33 Crosby St., Thursday, offering a wide selection of bagels, cream cheese spreads and breakfast foods, as well as soup, sandwiches and other lunch foods.

It is next door to Papa John’s Pizza and the downtown dance studio, A Common Ground, a half block from Main Street.

“It’s a step up brand-wise,” said Dan Bertram, of BRT General Corp., which brought the Bruegger franchise to Danbury.

Bertram said he was very happy to see the city and Landlord Joe DaSilva doing work to improve Library Place, which is two blocks south of the new bagel restaurant.

“I embrace anybody putting money into downtown. It will help everybody,” Bertram said.

Brueggers offers six breakfast sandwiches, Green Mountain Coffee, soup and sandwiches for lunch, hot Panini, deli sandwiches, salads and light desserts.

What I have a problem with is they close in the mid-afternoon. Most of the dance classes start then until 9pm. The patio is huge and inviting and I'm sure the parents would love to lounge outside on some furniture, enjoying food.

Agreed!!! There is a pizzeria on every corner in Danbury! Stanziatos is awesome though! and so is pepe. I love that the Cheesecake Factory is coming here, Whole Foods and let's see what else. But seriously, enough with the pizzerias! Danbury is full of shopping and food. I wish they would open something different and not only that, but a beautiful place to just walk around and enjoy! Exit 5 can be that. But not just yet I guess....Danbury can be the next Ridgefield or Greenwich if it wanted to or if The Owners started accepting worthy stores in our neighborhoods. Danbury is beautiful and safe and as you can see the economy here is not doing bad at all. Think BIG Danbury! Danbury is tranforming beautifully. But there's still alot of work. And no more pizzerias :)
