With all the times we have been to Stonington, this is our first time sitting down at the Yellow House for a real meal. Usually it is coffee on the run. We loved it. We shared a Panini sandwich with turkey, peppers and cheese. Just enough without being stuffed. However, You have to also share a cinnamon bun. GREAT.

The Yellow House has kind of a dive-y feel, but I couldn't fault the coffee. The salted caramel latte was very light and not too sweet, and the chicken salad wrap was delicious. Maybe I just happened to stop by on a good day...??

Yellow house is fine for coffee and a bagel but I made the mistake of ordering a sandwich last summer which, if I remember correctly, was turkey breast, avocado and bacon. The 1 slice of bacon was about 2" x 1" and the avocado was a smear in the middle of the bread. When I opened it up to eat... More

Have breakfast here most mornings when I am not traveling. They have "Daves" coffee which is really nice (Boro blend is my favorite) . I have the oatmeal with raisins and h&h. Some tasty vegan items as well..

Located in Stonington Boro the Yellow House is a comfortable spot for breakfast and light lunch (soup and sandwiches). The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is pleasant and the offerings are varied. Outdoor sitting is possible when the weather cooperates.

I've had a couple breakfast sandwiches and paninis here and they've always been great. Loved the free chocolate chip cookie I got when I checked in on Foursquare too!

we say outside on a lovely sunny October day, which was pleasant...but moreso because of the location than the coffee. We got a hot chocolate for my son which was less than tasty. Coffee unremarkable. Staffed by kids, so I guess it's always going to be random.

As with most places mostly staffed by teenagers, the quality and consistency of what you get varies wildly. Recent visits have yielded anything from cream cheese garnished with bagel to a bagel that looked like someone cleaned off the last schmear of cream cheese off a knife on it. Sadly the quality of the coffee and the level of service... More
