Cant believe we have lived in East Lyme for four years and never came here until today! Relaxing cafe atmosphere. Fun drink menu (today tried lemonade fizzies- lime, pomegranate and blueberry- all great!). Enjoyed a cheese quesadilla , simple but nice flavor. Also morocco tomato, very yummy with authentic flavors. Bbq chicken salad also great. Highly recommend a visit!

My husband and I went before heading on our anniversary weekend to Foxwoods. I had the BLaT in gluten free wrap which was delicious. Bacon, lettuce, avocado and lettuce. However, they added a serving of pasta on the side which was not gluten free. They apologized and gave me a side of fruit salad instead. Very cute place. Staff is... More

My wife had been wanting to try this restaraunt for some time, so we finally decided to stop in an have a quick bite.

While it looked cute and the menu sounded good, it wasn't! We sat outside and although the restaurant wasn't busy, we had to go in 3 times to check on our order!

Cute little independabit t place. A fine menuve tried many of the drinks offered here. Lattes/cappuccinos are ok, but the coffee has always been hot and fresh. A small location, but service is prompt and the baristas are friendly. Part of our routine.

Fresh food with a lot of thought put into it! Gluten free, vegan and vegetarian friendly. Locally owned by very nice people. Sit inside or outside on the patio in nice weather, after walking around downtown niantic.

It may have been an off day judging from the other reviews, but we did not have a positive experience here at all. The staff were not outwardly rude, but were no where near friendly and seemed bothered they had to stop their conversation and help us. My wife asked if ey had almond milk as she is lactose intolerant,... More
