Stopped by this bakery while in Mystic today. Carrot cake was the best! My husband liked his peanut butter sandwich cookie. Also, their green tea ginger lemonade was delicious. I couldn't really taste the green tea but if you like lemon and ginger together - it's very good. Our vanilla macaroon, chocolate opera cake, and almond croissant were ok, but I'd definitely go back for the carrot cake.

Thank Grace L

Sit outside to devour your delicious pastry and coffee and people watch. Mystic is a quaint town and this place certainly adds to its charm. Everything is prepared with an eye for beautiful desserts.

My wife and I spend a few weeks in France every year. Fresh, high quality food is valued by the french - baked goods especially. SIFT is one of three bakeries in CT that offers truly authentic french breads, cakes, scones -and especially good, flaky croissants ( the others are Versailles in Greenwich and Isabel et Vincent in Fairfield ). SIFT is a nice addition to Mystic.

Stopped there on our way out of town. Tried the lemon scones and ham and cheese croissant. Both were delicious. The scone was light, not sweet, and just the right touch of lemon. Definitely worth trying. The croissant was also light and flakey and the ham and cheese was distributed evenly throughout not clumped in the middle. Will definitely return and sample other treats as all looked delicious. Quality comes at a cost, worth the price.
