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

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.

This small cafe is a jewel! Open for breakfast and lunch until about 3pm, the surprising menu combines soups and salads with an Asian flair. The Thai Calamari sits on a salad bed with lightly fried onions and tangy fish sauce that delights the palate. When the pumpkin soup is available, it cannot be missed with it's garnish of toasted...

Found this lovely family owned cafe on this site. The menu offerings for lunch were varied and it was hard to choose. Breakfast all day was tempting, but we mostly opted for yummy lunch offerings. I liked the Asian salad! Service was very accommodating and happy to please.
