We look forward to coming here once a year if we are in Mystic. The food is excellent and it's a great little place. You get your own coffee with as many refills as you want. The food is always good...omelettes, eggs, French toast, bacon and sausage. It's always crowded but we didnt have to wait long at all. It... More

Geography has prevented me from eating here more often but fortunately I was asked to have a breakfast meeting here last week. Although you are on your own when it comes to getting coffee, they offer a great selection of different coffees and teas. The staff couldn't have been more polite or accommodating and the day specials and their menu... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast on our way home from Foxwoods because we were looking for a quant little diner and some good food. And let me tell you, this place did not disappoint! My husband ordered the pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon swirl and cream cheese glaze and they were the best pancakes I've ever eaten. I... More

Recommended by a staff member at the hotel. Don't blink or you might miss this quaint friendly local eatery. Unique menu offerings include vegetarian, Mexican, southern options. We bounced between the sampler, sausage and gravy, "the topper" and "the healthy" items. Hubby choose the sampler which included French toast, pancake, bacon, eggs, potatoes, sausage, and toast. I choose the topper... More

Having eaten here Over 20 times and another 10 times at their sister restaurant "When pigs fly" in Jordan village. I can unequivocally say they are two of the BEST eatery's for breakfast in South Eastern Connecticut. Chances are there will be a wait, but well worth it. Call ahead. They don't take credit, but have an ATM in the... More

Somewhere in Time Café – Mystic, CT – 9/3/2016 If you can picture a cozy little out of the way breakfast and lunch place this would be that place! The service is friendly, the coffee is included and you can choose between outdoor or inside seating. I had an omelet with avocado, tomato, bacon & cheese with a side of... More

Sunday, August 28th - Breakfast. My wife and I were on our own this morning. We had driven up to Shelton, CT, on Friday (staying at the Marriott Courtyard there) to visit family, but we had no commitments until dinner today. Remembering a family event in Mystic, CT, several years ago, we figured that since it was such a nice... More

Whenever passing through, we get breakfast here. It is a strange place in all the right ways. Expect a wait on weekends, but do it. They let you have all you can drink coffee while you wait. The menu is expansive, with a focus on fresh, creative breakfast items. The service can range from down-home to full out "I don't... More

OK, I saw the ratings and chose this for our final breakfast in Mystic, so maybe the experience of lobster benedict elsewhere totally spoiled me for any other place, but I didn't really find this incredibly noteworthy. The self-serve coffee, tea, etc. is a little strange and it is not a huge place, so moving around the tables and servers... More
