Only been here for lunch, but I hear the breakfast is good too. The sandwiches are nice and fresh, and the portions are great. The pulled pork with apple slaw is great, and I don't even like slaw. A bit pricey but it's adorable and has yummy food!

In the heart of quaint downtown Niantic, Café SoL is a gem of a coffee and sandwich shop serving up healthy and modern options.

We went to Cafe Sol for lunch. They were out of the BBQ that my husband wanted. He had a BLT and I had a salad with smoked salmon. The food itself was ok but took a very long time to prepare. As we were sitting waiting for our lunch we noticed that the restaurant did not seem to be... More

All the sandwiches are available on gluten free bread, AND it is delicious. Was glad to find such a nice little breakfast place I can ACTUALLY eat at!

Very good lunch with friends. We had sandwiches. They have varied choices for salads and sandwiches. Nothing for little kids really. The atmosphere is cute and food is average but not consistent . Staff is nice. Good choices for vegetarians.

I love the freshly brewed coffee's and BLAT sandwich. It has a cool local vibe to it and you can sit outside and enjoy the main strip of beautiful Niantic. Love this place and go at least one a month.

I would not call my experience anything other than average. Staff was nice enough, a bit scattered, not in a cool kind of laid back way, but scattered, as in who is doing what.

I spoke personally to Brian, one of the owners. Only the coffee, the agave, and spinach are organic. However, everyone who works here are wonderfully nice, and the atmosphere is cozy.

My husband and I were vacationing here and we eat very healthy. Generally only organic, non-GMO, etc. Well, I found this on Trip Advisor and was elated an organic cafe was in this town. I had a tuna melt on a gluten free bagel and I have to say I don't see gluten free bagels anywhere. It was devine. Love... More
