Off the beaten path, self serve coffee and cash only. We stopped on our way back to Long Island from Foxwoods and I would take the ferry back to eat breakfast there again! Omelet was outstanding! Service was great too. A must try

Nice breakfast spot inland. Excellent coffee and varied menu. Everything was fresh and tasted good. Liked the many menu options. Did I say excelleent coffee! A little expensive but worth it as a special treat.

Came in for brunch. We were sat at a dirty table. I had to wipe it myself with napkins. Got coffee to start with. Waited a while for our foods. Their sausage is awful! Not coming back here again!

This place is good, but it's the same food you can find at any diner of breakfast place. Waiting 20+ minutes for a table isn't worth it.

One of the best for breakfast in the area of Mystic. Hard to find place but the food is great. Expensive for breakfast but if you want to have a great meal spend the money.

As a second stop on an area day trip, I took a friend( who had never been on the back roads of southeastern CT) to lunch at Somewhere in Time, after visiting the Clyde Cider Mill. I knew we had to make this the 2nd stop on our road trip, since they are only open until 2 pm. I have... More

We look forward to coming here once a year if we are in Mystic. The food is excellent and it's a great little place. You get your own coffee with as many refills as you want. The food is always good...omelettes, eggs, French toast, bacon and sausage. It's always crowded but we didnt have to wait long at all. It... More

Geography has prevented me from eating here more often but fortunately I was asked to have a breakfast meeting here last week. Although you are on your own when it comes to getting coffee, they offer a great selection of different coffees and teas. The staff couldn't have been more polite or accommodating and the day specials and their menu... More
