Yea I wouldn't ever go there again I ordered blueberry French toast. There were no blueberries to be found. Horrible the wait staff said" I guess the cooks have nt had enough coffee". Btw stop brewing your own coffee. Stick with seafood

They advertise "the best coffee in Stonington". Sadly, they may be right. We tried both their normal coffee and their espresso, and they were both flavor-less, hard to taste any coffee. We did not try the food, so I can't comment on that.

Whether you are walking in for the first time or the 100th, you will be treated like family. I cannot think of another place quite like this in our fast food age. The baked goods (Susie's) are sublime and she offers gluten free alternatives. Breakfast is justifiably popular,but stop by for lunch too. Above all, don't miss the coffee. Beans... More

Adorable, very Maine-ish, good food in generous quantity. Plus I liked the serve-yourself coffee. Blueberry pancakes here are special....buttermilk, perhaps? One problem: open only a few days a week....can't remember which. They serve lunch too, but we didn't try it.

We just spent a week in Little Deer Isle, and one of the highlights was our breakfast at Susie Q's, a lovely, unpretentious little spot just off the main town road. We had blueberry pancakes, which my 7-year-old daughter says were just irresistible... they were light and fluffy, and the local blueberries - plump and flavorful. We also had some... More

First of all, let me say I HATE pancakes, but heard they were good at this restaurant so we decided to try it. It extremely casual and when you walk in you tend to feel like you have walked into a party to which you haven't been invited. Coffee is help you self. On our first visit 50% of the... More

I've been buying cakes from Susan for years! When ever I have a big party, she always comes through for me. Today we celebrated my Aunt's 90th birthday with a fantastic carrot cake - most, flavorful, and just sweet enough - and a chocolate cake decorated with beautiful edible flowers and writing. Who could ask for more?? They were both... More

We had breakfast twice this week at Susie Q's and we cleaned our plates both times. Best of all is the service which is local, genuine and friendly. They serve excellent coffee and I though the prices were very reasonable.

Stopped here while on vacation in Stonington to get a cake for my son's birthday. They didn't have any in the case, so I asked if I could order one for the next day. Not the friendliest person, but she said yes, took my order and told me what time it would be ready the next day. I didn't ask... More

In reading your review, I felt bad that the cake was so disappointing to you. When I talked to my hostess, she said that all the customers who brought back the plates that the cakes were on for that week all said that they were all great. I do realize that most people do not like face to face confrontations... More
