Good coffee and chai. Reasonable prices: nothing is really cheap around here. The pastries are good and the staff was friendly. Great place to stop and take a coffee break while walking around Stonington. No dedicated parking.

Small, but neat. Funky décor, self serve coffee and bus your own dishes. Quick service with delicious bagel egg sandwiches.

We were staying in town for the weekend and stopped by this place (really cute from outside) on our first day! What a mistake...the coffee was lacking flavor and lunch items that we got (#2 and #5) were lukewarm and overpriced. #2 was turkey with chipotle mayo where avocado was a listed ingredient. But where was the avocado? We asked... More

This is a unique place. They are very nice we went there when Noah's was closed on Monday's. I like the people and it is a cute place for a cap or coffee but not a full breakfast spot just cozy and charming.

Convenient spot on main street through Stonington. We've been here a few times now. Variety of coffees and tea's with daily specials. We've never tried the sandwiches or other foods. Good quality and service.

A great comfortable place to rest. The chai lattes were delicious, as was the apple fritter. Very charming without being overly precious.

Simply the most exciting thing to this lacto pescatarian is a vegan hummus wrap, and they had it with red peppers and fresh veggies and it was so delicious. Also had a great assortment of teas and bagles to choose from. I approve:)
