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

When you can elevate something simple like scrambled eggs, with the thoughtful additions of cream cheese, bacon and spinach, you have a chef who cares to make breakfast extra delicious. There are so many different breakfast treats to try!

My husband and I visited Somewhere in Time Cafe yesterday and not only were we transported visually to another time, but also by taste. My husband had the Sausage Gravy Biscuits and declared it was the best breakfast he'd had...ever. Keeping in mind he rarely orders another breakfast dish besides his favorite, Eggs Benedict. I had the Hocus Poachus, which... More

Waitress came out with a bowl of water and a STACK of bacon. The dog was so happy. The food is great. Unlimited self serve coffee. With an extra cup to... More

When trying to decide where to go for breakfast we found this lovely cafe set with tables reminiscent of the "50's" complete with serve yourself coffee. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. We had pancakes with blueberry sauce and an omelet. Great value

Thank Annette K
