This place depends on the weather. My girlfriend and I pass through New London every 6 months or so on the way to or from the Amtrak station. What can you say about this place? Its a coffee house. Cozy, but what we liked about it was their back patio. Yeah, it looks out over the rear of a bunch of restaurants, but its right on the river and a very pretty view. Come here on a spring or fall morning, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and a pastry and you can start your morning off right.
I had tea, she had coffee - I don't remember what kind but it doesn't matter - and we split a cinnamon roll. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the cinnamon roll wasn't great. But we still enjoyed our morning before our train and I am sure we'll be back.
If you like coffee shops, then you'll like it here. Guess that's all you can say about a coffee house other than that it isn't Starbucks
