One of the Best Coffee \ Breakfast Cafés in the area!

Got to warn you first. You're likely to have to wait to get in. Very popular and well known for their food and service! Breakfast selection (along with specials) keep them coming back! You can grab a cup of coffee while you wait!

Just got back from a vacation in Mystic and absolutely loved stopping in here for breakfast. I can't believe this place gets anything but 4-5 star reviews. But then again, after reading the negative reviews - "there are a few in every crowd", right? Don't let them turn you off. First of all - yes, they are cash only. Bring... More

We are two UK people who visited as part of an East Coast Road trip. We were recommended this place by a server in a local restaurant. We were told 'it is a locals place' which made us a little dubious as we stick our like two sore thumbs being European!! We were given the most friendly welcome and the... More

Very popular place, also very noisy when full - hard to hear yourself talk at your own table. Should have sat outside on the little porch. Serves breakfast and lunch, have to get up and get your own coffee!! Good food.

I came here with a rather large group and our waitress was helpful, cheerful AND PATIENT! It is hard to get 6 gals together in one spot and make a decision on dishes but everything worked out. Our waitress immediately explained the system (grab your own drinks inside) and the food was fantastic! Filling and Delicious; perfect for brunch with... More

Somewhere in Time is a nice little gem located a few minutes outside of Mystic in a small strip "mall" type building. NOTE: Cash only but there is an ATM outside the entrance door which is inside a short hallway. Also, when you arrive, help yourself to coffee. Lots of different flavors and the fastest way to get coffee when... More

Large portions and fast service were always the norm, not the exception. Staff was friendly and cheerful.

A very upsetting experience. My husband and I moved to Mystic last September and have since made this a regular breakfast spot. We go every weekend- sometimes even twice on the weekend! It's got a nice hustle and bustle atmosphere and the waitresses are very efficient during the weekend rush. I have tried nearly everything on the menu and have... More

I'm so glad we have gone here ! The portions are huge so we get to take some home. We go for Sunday breakfast but get there early before the church rush! Service is good and they are so friendly ! Prices are reasonable and I like how they have coffee to go after your meal. The breakfast burritos are... More

Food is great here but best bring your own cash. The restaurant doesn't accept debit or credit and their atm inside is known to have loiterers. The business doesn't care enough about the atm to keep an eye on it at all times to prevent this sort of thing, but this morning when I went in for breakfast there was... More
