Their lattes taste really well: both decaf and the ordinary one. I liked the way they were prepared as it looked that it was done with lots of care. And the cups were filled to the max :)
I'd say that the interior is à la Mystic. It looked a bit old and worn but well kept and maintained in the same time.

If you're in Mystic and want to have a cup of good coffee I'd suggest that you visit the place.

The only drawback: table by the window with comfy chairs that we chose was unstable and we spilled our great tasting coffee because of it. If it wasn't for that I'd have given 5 stars to the cafe.

We've taken to stopping here for coffee on one of our many strolls into town. The place isn't bad but it could benefit from a good cleaning. It could be a bit more inviting but at the end of the day, the coffee is decent. It could be a Mystic gem if they tried a little harder.

I love the chowder and chai latte tea. Fun to sit and read the Times. The owner and staff are friendly and accommodating. Inexpensive.

Stopped here for lunch to get a quick sandwich, not too much to choose from and the staff just expected you to know the options that come on the chicken sandwich, and seemed annoyed when you asked what the options were. I'm not sure if he was new but definitely did not seem happy to be working and did not seem to be paying attention, we were lucky he got our order correct. The coffee was good and the food was ok. Would not be my first choice to go back to for food, not very flavorful and just basic options. My suggestion would be to skip the food and just get to the drinks.

We wanted a quick sandwich and a coffee so went and ordered. When we sat down we looked around and saw how dirty it was bit late to cancel as order was paid for... you couldn't see out of the window for the coffee splashes inside and the dirt outside. The table was dirty on the sides from dried food spillage and the chairs were covered from thick dust except from the top that you sat on.
We were the only ones in there although there were a couple of people who came infer a takeaway coffee
This could be such a quirky and lovely place to visit if they would only pay attention to detail.
