Charming for a cup of coffee or a cap

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.

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

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:)

We have been here a few times for pastries and hot beverages. It is right near Dubois Beach where we go diving. (Note: We've heard diving is not permitted once the season opens on Memorial Day weekend.) We decided to try lunch today. I had the club sandwich. The bread was toasted just right and the meat was a good... More

After seeing this place turn hands several times, this is by far the worst. Several times I've been in the shop and I've seen the owner be pushy and rude to the customers. It is such a shame because this place has the potential to be great. The bagels are average, though, the addition of the lunch options are good.

This is truly a local coffee place - not a chain and also using a locally made coffee, Dave's, which is excellent. The sandwiches are fresh and often locally sourced ingredients, too. Great atmosphere for morning coffee with friends at the homey wooden tables.
