Excellent breakfast on the veranda by the Lieutenant River!

Not only is the breakfast wonderful, but their Pho soup and other Vietnamese specialties are authentic and delicious. A very popular spot, open for breakfast and lunch with seating directly on the pretty Lieutenant River Marshes.

Yummy breakfast. Real butter and real syrup--but you have to ask for it and they will happily bring it. Good breakfast specials. We sat on the patio and had a great view.

The restaurant overlooks the marsh. The food is outstanding and it is very homey. It is a bit small but still worth it.

tucked away in a tiny shopping plaza a copse of trees away from the Florence Griswold museum in Old Lyme, this lovely breakfast and lunch spot offers indoor and outdoor eating.

We ate lunch here overlooking the quiet Lieutenant River. The food was good; especially the egg rolls and Thai iced tea. The spring rolls were different than I was used to, with thick noodles inside. If I went again, I would try different food. Very nice scenery.

Menu has a nice variety and mix of ethnic and American dishes and sandwiches. Server was friendly and efficient. The Pho is very good, also Pad Thai. Almost all the sandwiches are quite good. Prices are just a tad higher than comparable restaurants of the same type.

This is always a fabulous breakfast location. I believe they serve lunch as well. The morning menu has a broad variety of healthy entrees and breakfast sandwiches. They also have outside seating looking out on the marsh.

Tiny cafe with interesting food, but very crowded and always busy, so very noisy. Lots of selections on menu, and unique specials, many with Asian influence.

This is a Laotian refugee family who has a wonderful history with the churches of Old Lyme who helped rescue them. They have brought a wonderful combination of their native cooking and traditional American dishes for delicious breakfasts and lunch offerings. The spring, summer and fall they have outdoor seating along The Lieutenant River. So comfortable and peaceful.
