Breakfast for lunch

Much more than ice cream. We had lunch here with 2 of the three of us enjoying great eggs and the third a sausage sandwich (I think). We all left happy. Next time I'll have to try the ice team.

The location is great as it gets its name for the bridge. The variety of ice cream, coffees, and food is fine as well. It is a no frills place where you have to ask to have the tables cleaned. College kids run this place and you just need to adjust your level of expectations here.

My family stopped here for a snack while sightseeing in Mystic. The ice cream was good and the prices weren't too bad for a tourist area. Good service.

We went for ice cream, but they also serve what appears to be really neat & yummy food. The ice cream flavors are many, and creatively named. This was my second visit and I'm going again tomorrow! Looking forward to it, and you should, too.

My wife and I had ice cream here during our Mystic getaway and it was delicious. I tried the Mystic Mud and she had Peanut Butter Cup. The ice cream is smooth yet dense and the flavors are amazing. It's worth the wait in line.

Had to try this place after trying the sweet shop across the street. Have to say, it was great. Great variety for ice cream, creamy & rich. Not much room inside or outside but a great place to SI and watch the drawbridge.

All the girls at the counter were really sweet, helpful and patient. The ice cream was cold and fabulous! It was a hot day and it held up really well. Latte drink was good too. We ordered a Southwest Wrap and it was really tasty on the train home to NYC. Best ice cream in town

Having heard that Taylor Swift treated her entourage to ice cream here, we just HAD to try it out! We weren't disappointed. Delicious ice- cream and lots of flavours to choose from. The interior isn't very spacious, but we were more than happy to have our ice creams as 'take out', as we strolled around lovely Mystic.

Came in for a quick lunch and to fulfill an ice cream craving. The sandwiches sounded great, but I opted for the Garden Salad because I was saving my calories for chowder in the evening. It was ok. My mom had the Chef Salad and the lettuce was hardly cut at all. It was difficult to eat, especially with a... More

I am an ice cream snob and this is FANTASTIC! The Mystic Mud and Kona coffee are to die for. You can watch the drawbridge activity while you eat.
