Not only was the gal working behind the counter extremely rude to us but we could hear her talking in the back with her staff. The coffee was flavorless, we dumped it and went to Dunkin! I love supporting local businesses but we will not...be back.More

Well, if any eatery can make the al fresco dining fun, Mystic Depot Roasters has it wired. We have only been there three times--we live more than an hour away, but each time has been better than the last. We had one grilled corn muffin...and one grilled cheddar and chive scone, and oh my. Now I will have to grill every muffin I serve my hubby. These were outstanding. And, of course, the cold-brewed coffee is wonderful as usual. We ordered at the front patio table, and our pastries were served hot and in a timely manner, even though they were quite busy and observing strict social distancing and masks in public areas. It's obvious they are prepared to do their thing with excellence and extreme health precautions. Thank you! We stayed about an hour, and no one hurried us at all.More

The staff is amazing. When we got there we saw a long line and thought that we would have a wait time. But the two people who were outside taking orders are super efficient and friendly. The breakfast burrito is one of the best we...ever had.More

Mystic Depot Roasters offers a safe environment for outdoor dining and take out service. Markers clearly show six feet social distance while awaiting placing your order; outdoor tables, with umbrellas for shade, are likewise spaced and are adjacent to the AMTRAK train tracks. Located in...restored historic Mystic train station, Mystic Depot Roasters is a great place for railroad fans, young and old alike, to enjoy outdoor safe outdoor dining. Highly recommended.More

Great location with parking. I had the delicious blueberry pancakes and my husband had a tasty breakfast sandwich. Coffee was fantastic. Although the interior of the restaurant is very cool, I would recommend snagging a seat on the outdoor patio behind the restaurant. Great views...and a perfect way to start the day.More

While driving around town on our first morning in the Mystic area, we stumbled upon MDR. We were helped by the wonderfully friendly and helpful Andrea, and we enjoyed a relaxing breakfast with good coffee outside. My omelet was tasty and sizeable, which made me...very happy. When we were considering where to go for breakfast on our last day in town, and based on our first experience, this place was an easy choice. MDR will definitely be a go-to place whenever we're in the area.More

have not had breakfast here but have had lunch a few times and each time it was really good. The couple that run it have their whole heart and soul into this small venture. They have done themselves proud as the sandwiches we have had...were really nice and the revamp of the train station is saving history as well. So good for you for having done such a great job and providing good solid food for the customers who I am sure will support you by coming back again. Prices are very fair and food is outstanding. A real Gem.More

Stopped in mid morning. We had never been here before. It is at the Amtrack station. Cute, clean, and relaxing. Great menu and great prices for what we got. Order at the counter. Lots of antique artifacts about trains. I enjoyed my chicken salad sandwich....The staff was friendly.More
