Really good sandwiches. The overhang over the water and the wonderful sunloight coming in the back makes this a great part of "old" New London.

Cute and casual cafe in New London on the water. Lots of seating outside and a nice view of the water. The service is good, staff is very friendly. Food is delicious - from nova lox on bagels and bacon egg and cheese for breakfast to roast beef sandwiches and tomato soup for lunch. Very affordable and good size portions... More

We came for breakfast, the owners are very friendly and the service was great. There is seating in the front , a very comfy sitting area towards the back and then an outdoor patio in the back. The coffee was delicious, and a good variety of yummy pastries. We ate breakfast which was served quickly and came to the table... More

This is a nice, local, coffee house with excellent sandwiches and other goodies. It has a great deck, and a pleasant interior. Friendly service, good coffee, and a good local atmosphere - what's not to like? A must stop if you are in historic New London.

I liked this place, it looks and feels very homey & funky and the good food was fresh. They have an unusual selection of very nice drinks, too.

Rainy day in new London and wanted a coffee and a cookie (got a muffin too!) Very nice and tasty. Got a comfy couch and sat and read lots of old circa 1950-1970 life magazines, watching the rain fall. Then got grilled cheese and soup mmmm. Perfect On a rainy day.

My wife and I really enjoy this place when we are in New London. The sandwiches are always fresh and very tasty and BIG. There is a great selection of drinks. I enjoy the hot chai. It is nice having a non-typical restaurant to eat in. It is very relaxing and today a gentleman was playing soft music on the... More

Coffee was terrible, food was lack luster. Atmosphere was.. ok, very quiet, a few regulars sitting around. Barista was sweet, but everything else was bleh.

It is easy to label downtown New London as a dead zone, yet there is a vibrant community of interesting people who call New London home. Finding these eclectic folks is easy, as they usually hang out at the Muddy Waters Cafe for breakfast, and/or lunch. The vibe here is laid back, and the cafe is decorated with interesting, vintage...
