Good for a quick cup of coffee and cake, they do make breakfast but we had no time. They do have wifi.

“A must stop for coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

I stop here every time I'm in Mystic for a coffee or Chai Latte and they never disappoint! The food is pretty good too! Grab a chair by the window, relax and read the paper.

“Decent food, high prices, and a RUDE owner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

The food was great but almost $10 for a chicken wrap at a coffee shop is way over the top. The coffee was delicious but my husband's chai was way too sweet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy my visit due to the owner constantly verbally berating his staff. Very rudely, loudly, and in front of the customers. When I looked nervously at a couple sitting nearby I heard the girl say, "Again? Working here must be awful." I want to support local, small businesses but I won't support bad bosses who treat their employees so poorly. I'll go to Starbucks next time.

“Great cafe - shame about surly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

This is a cafe is in a great location on the Main Street in a pretty town. My coffee and sandwich was good - and there was fast wifi as well. It was just such a shame that the staff member was so indifferent.
