Dottie's Diner Bringing Breakfast, Lunch, And Award Winning Doughnuts To Waterbury
Economic development in downtown Waterbury just got sweeter with the announcement that Dottie's Diner, the creator of the best doughnut in Connecticut, is opening up a second restaurant at 146 Grand Street. The official announcement came from Mayor Neil O'Leary's office this morning, and the mayor and economic development director Ron Pugliese will hold a press conference this afternoon at 1:30 pm at the location on Grand Street, directly across from the post office. The public is invited to attend the event.
Dottie’s Diner, formerly Phillip’s -- a Woodbury institution since 1930 -- is scheduled to officially open on September 24, 2012, Dottie’s II will be initially be serving breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. From omelets to their famous old-fashioned chicken potpie, the menu will provide wide appeal. For five years in a row Dottie’s Diner’s doughnuts were voted #1 in the state by Connecticut Magazine. Known for a comfortable, family atmosphere, Phillip’s was purchased by Dorie and Ken Sperry in 2006, when it became Dottie’s Diner. The Sperry’s spent a combined twenty-two years at the Mayflower Inn in Washington, CT, where they met sixteen years ago.
Downtown Waterbury has been lacking a traditional breakfast and lunch restaurant. The opening of Dottie’s II represents another win for the central business district, and shows that the city’s economic development efforts are paying off.
