I was craving "Eggs Benedict" one day & stop by "Café Sol", close by our house & she said they do not make it, but she said to go to: "Charlie's place" up the road. Good recommendation & I am thankful, because this way I discovered an excellent local restaurant we enjoy now pretty often. "Cafe Sol" is located on... More

I love to support local. This restaurant is in beautiful downtown Niantic. It's a bright casual atmosphere with photography and artwork on the walls from local artists. Friendly and prompt service. We ordered 2 sandwiches and their homemade lemonade. We were very pleased and will return.

Exactly the type of place we were looking for. Cute restaurant with an excellent selection of sandwiches. You can combo soup and sandwich or salad and sandwich. Fresh, organic ingredients. Nice employees. Definitely rooting for these guys.

As long as you don't mind hanging out for a while this is a great little place for lunch. We enjoyed roll up sandwich plus hummos/black bean dip plate. It took a while to be served so we just read local papers.

Only been here for lunch, but I hear the breakfast is good too. The sandwiches are nice and fresh, and the portions are great. The pulled pork with apple slaw is great, and I don't even like slaw. A bit pricey but it's adorable and has yummy food!

In the heart of quaint downtown Niantic, Café SoL is a gem of a coffee and sandwich shop serving up healthy and modern options.

We went to Cafe Sol for lunch. They were out of the BBQ that my husband wanted. He had a BLT and I had a salad with smoked salmon. The food itself was ok but took a very long time to prepare. As we were sitting waiting for our lunch we noticed that the restaurant did not seem to be... More
