Kitchen Little started out as this "hole in the wall" breakfast/lunch place along the Mystic River in CT. It was a tiny place with limited seating in the winter (in summer, they expanded to outdoors). The food was good and a Portuguese theme prevailed. A few years ago they moved over to the... read more

Food: OUTSTANDING. Staff: Super Friendly. View: Boats and Waterfront. I would suggest getting one of everything from the menu and then finish off with everything on the special's menu. Everything is fantastic. Lobster Omelet, scrambles, regular breakfast fare. Did I say it before? AMAZING. We will go back again and again. Thank you to the staff and chef.

A very small shop with a quaint hometown feel that overlooks the Mystic river. Even in winter the drive out to the restaurant from Mystic is just beautiful. The food was excellent and plentiful. It was a good value and simply delicious. I suspect this little restaurant would be jam packed during the season and it wasn't all that empty... More

My husband found this place online and took me there for breakfast on my birthday weekend. It was fabulous and we will return as often as we can (we live an hour away). I love going out for breakfast and this is one of my favorites. Everything is perfect - the ambiance, the food, and the staff. I love Kitchen... More

The location is off the beaten path but well worth the drive. There was a keyboard player who added to ambiance. The menu is extensive and the specials were exciting. Shout out to our server Jimmy who was accommodating and attentive. The food was delicious. If you are in the Mystic area, don't miss this restaurant. It makes breakfast the... More

This place never disappoints. Great American breakfasts with a home cooked feel. Always very busy especially on a Sunday but worth a short wait.

Make sure to program your gps in advance and don't miss this gem. Wanted to try something different while staying in mystic and this place hit a home run. Different. Delicious. Great people. Fast service. Friendly. A hidden gem of a place hidden in a boat yard

Can't get there without GPS. That said, worth the AG of looking for. We come here every year during vacation. This time I tried the sausage gravey and biscuit. Great big fluffy biscuits with lots of meaty sausage gravy. Good eggs and my husband swears by the pancakes. Very reasonable prices.
