Went for Sunday breakfast, but we ate inside due to rain. Cute place, attentive service, well prepared breakfast dishes. An easy breezy place to chat over a coffee or tea. We think we remember it was cash only, no plastic, but that may have changed by now. Egg combos run in the $10 range, so be prepared .

The restaurant was busy, but I sat for twenty minutes before I was even given a menu....people that came in after me were served before me. i had to ask to order. I know that it is difficult to be a server during the lunch rush, but I didn't find... More

Great breakfast. Stopped here on a whim because weren't familiar with the area. Service was quick, food was delicious. Nice sunny atmosphere. Lovely paintings on the wall.

This is another local favorite for breakfast or lunch (no alcohol served). Chai teas, Asian salads and soups plus very fresh seafood or a hamburger are all fine. Coffee is good and the view is unequaled.

I had homemade soup that was delicious! No salt or pepper necessary! The waitress was friendly, personable, and knew the menu very well. My entree salad was extremely fresh, tasty, and huge. I wish I lived closer to frequent the cafe more often!

The lunch meal including the spring rolls were very good, the view of the river with the fall foliage was spectacular but the story of the family that own this restaurant is one of determination and simply amazing. Great place to stop for a meal based on the varied menu, quality, quantity and value. Will definitely stop here again when... More

Always fresh food and pleasant servers. The Peach&Pumpkin soup is delicious, as are the very fresh salads. Good portions and decent prices. The menu seems to change with the seasons which is always nice to see.

Loved the view. We chose to eat in where it was cooler on a warm day. The service was attentive and food was delicious. The tuna sandwich was tasty as was the beer-battered cod fillet on a bun.

I loved this place! I wish I wasn't gluten and dairy free because I could have tasted the amazing food my boyfriend has but the Spring Rolls and Pad Thai were incredible! Thank you for a delicious meal! We hope to stop here again.

This restaurant has a wonderful story. The owner came as a child from Asia in a refugee family sponsored by the Congregational Church of Old Lyme. He has grown up and is running this lovely breakfast and lunch spot in an idyllic location. My favorite lunch is an Asian salad with chicken served with a peanut sauce. Yum, yum! Breakfasts... More
