A Mystic Must!

On our way to visit family for Christmas, my husband and I stopped at Lis Bake Shop in Mystic for some breakfast. Although very unassuming - inside - this bakery is brimming with divine bakery treats. There are a few seats at a counter - but no real table seating. In warmer months - there are a... read more

Real bakeries using real ingredients are harder and harder to find. I adore Lis's tangerine cupcake. I have turned numerous friends on to Lis's delicious baked goods. Hands down, the tastiest in town.

When visiting from out-of-state, this is my mom's favorite spot to stop in for tea and a scone or something similar. We went there before Thanksgiving and, as always, whoever is working there couldn't possibly be any nicer or have a warmer greeting--the owner obviously has a knack for hiring great people! This time we shared a large square of... More

Stopped here to see what pumpkin treats they had made. There were so many to choose from and I could have tried everything. I settled on a pumpkin whoopee pie with cream cheese frosting (amazing!) and a small pumpkin cheesecake (also amazing!). I have never been for breakfast sandwiches, but next time, we will give it a try. My only... More

Have been twice for breakfast. Super cute. Friendly staff. Lattes are delicious. Egg sandwiches are good. Morning Glory muffin is so amazing, I wish I could have one every day. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I visited Mystic for our 25th Anniversary, and had seen that Lis' was highly recommended. We would walk into ton each morning, and that was our first stop. We were not disappointed! Great Egg Sandwiches, Sweets and Coffee. The ladies were friendly and a must for any travel to Mystic!

Our 1st morning in Mystic we came upon this little spot and decided to grab a quick cup of tea and then we walked in and the delicious smells caused us to get more than coffee and tea. We had a breakfast sandwich on bagels, which were delicious but we couldn't stop there. We tried the fresh baked pumpkin coffee... More

Great little bakery. Very friendly. Ask what is freshest baked for that special out of the oven experience. We got a couple coconut macaroons...too good given their freshness. Highly recommend, especially given its off the main avenue. If the weather is nice, go out back and sit by the dock!

If you want the MOST AMAZING and FRESHLY BAKED bread, you have to visit Lis Bake Shop. It was a great experience to see the art of them actually making the bread. It was truly a delight to watch. The delectable aromas that filled this bakery was just outstanding... You have to experience it first hand! Amazing Find!
