Cute place you can sit in or out- surrounded by beautiful flowers. Soup, sandwich's and salads are super fresh and interesting. Don't skip this if you're in town.

I love this cafe. The staff are friendly and accomodating and the food is great. They will do catering platters as well. I had the Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato (BLAT) sandwich last week, and added egg to it - delicious! Gluten free options too.

The food is good but I've consistently waited a minimum of 15 minutes every day this week when I came for my tuna melt. (And I was the only customer there!) Each time I've had to go up and ask if my food is ready and then they always go back and check and profusely apologize and bring it out.... More

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

The cafe itself is small with only a coulpe of tables on the inside, but has a large "patio" seating area that was quite nice on the day we went. The menu itself is a little... More

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! My friend had the quesodia and she said it was like eating play dough ! I had a veggie wrap with Avocado, awful tasting! The avocado was not... More

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.
