For years, the American public has had a love affair with soda. Soda consumption reached its peak in 1998 with 54 gallons per capita per year. And then the tide turned based largely on the information that our nation’s rising obesity rates were due, in part, to our heavy consumption of soda. Today, Americans now drink only 44 gallons of soda per year, a 17% drop, and have increased water consumption to 58 gallons, an increase of 38%. For us at Breakfast on the Connecticut, our water has always been the perfect beverage. We have a deep-well artesian that draws from a very pure aquifer. Our water used to be state tested 4 times a year but, because of its purity, testing was reduced by the state to only twice a year. Our water is pure and refreshing especially on a hot summer’s day. When asked by guests if they can drink the water our response is a resounding YES! “Our water is purer and tastes much better than the contents of that bottle you are holding.” Bring your bottled water if you must – drink the contents and then fill the container again at one of our taps with “our perfect beverage”. Better yet, bring your reusable water container (reduce plastic waste) and enjoy what we believe is the “nectar of the gods”.
