This is a quaint little place located along the river. There is nice seating inside and some outside sitting with a view of the river and the train station. The food is tasty and the coffee is very good.

This local gem had a funky, young vibe. The breakfast menu is limited, but the food is well prepared, tasty and fairly priced. The outdoor seating is a plus. Or there is indoor seating with a library feel.

Love the love salad! Lettuce cheese salami and garlic. Served with a side of garlic bread in a wooden bowl. Delicious! Great service and historic pics of new London. Only downside the patio was full!!
