Always a great spot to stop in for a drink or coffee. The food ain't too bad either. This is the "Cheers" of New London, its a place where everyone knows your name and the food is always consistent and good!

Stopped by to visit a new shop that had some pretty good reviews on Trip Advisor. This shop serves as a cafe during the day and a full bistro dining outlet at night. I had the bean breakfast bowl, which was a nice Mexican/American fusion. It's an extra $2 to add bacon or sausage to the dish. My guest had... More

Visited this small coffee shop/restaurant for an early lunch. Ordered house fritatta with home fries. So far, so good. Food arrived, delivered by waiter with the greasiest, dirtiest-looking hair I've ever seen. After he left, I looked at my plate and there was a long black hair across my food. Many apologies, and another 15 minute wait for a replacement... More

I come here frequently with my fiancé. We always get the NY style bagels with cream cheese (all 3 types of bagels are delicious and soft inside). He gets the caramel macchiato and I get the white chocolate latte. Heaven in a cup. My advice? DO IT. EAT HERE.

A place where locals gather for a good atmosphere! Met a few people that lived next door in the condos. A coffee bar meets Italian place. Perhaps it was late in the day but there were few in any cakes, cookies etc... available. Coffee is locally roasted and tasted good. Nice atmosphere. Nice to work, meet friends.

Even when it wasn't as promoted for the food, this cafe has definitely topped my list of favorites for their coffee and comfy sitting. Great place for me to study and get work done, especially cause of the lighting. Washington Street Cafe is also notably good, just not as great of lighting in my personal opinion.

Great coffee and pastries, the staff is prompt and helpful. We had espresso, regular coffee, macaroon and muffin--all made in house and all delicious.

My husband and I went to this restaurant because we were in the area and we read the reviews and it looked nice, my advice is Don t waste your time, there was only one other table in the restaurant being served, they took about 45 minutes to bring out our food, it was ok, nothing to write home about,...
