Nice breakfast choices-- we had breakfast burrito which included avocado and grills the tortilla so nicely. Other choices for breakfast and lunch were enticing. Good service, serve your own coffee and cash only. Prices are not low but suit the food you get. Very busy and popular spot- been in business a long time so you know they are reliable.

Best breakfast in Mystic! Such a unique menu with specials everyday.

Service is efficient and fast and you can sub, take out, and add stuff without a... More

Our family had breakfast at Somewhere in Time Sunday morning. Friendly and efficient service, interesting specials -- waffles with roasted pears, good coffee, retro decor.

Somewhere in Time met most of these.... More

I had the little breakfast with a side of bacon and my husband had the loaded omelet. Great coffee and sourdough toast. Reasonable prices - crowded but line moves fast.

Fabulous! I had the Hocus Poachus with a side of garlic/parmesan home fries , but really had a hard time deciding what to choose. The menu, and specials, provided such creative options that i wish I could have had a 'tasting' platter! This is my first TripAdvisor review and I implore anyone traveling in the Mystic, Connecticut area to take... More

Their coffee is excellent and refills are free. Everything was delicious and we will visit again when in the Mystic area. Give them... More

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

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!
