Very nice coffee shop in picturesque downtown Guilford, across from the Green. Tasty sandwiches, gourmet coffee, pastries. Good prices. Enjoyed lunch there before heading on to Hammonasset State Park for a walk along the shore.

A happy place where regulars get their favorite beverages/coffee without requesting - they remember! A lovely assortment of salads and quick on the run snacks. The ambiance great, the shop overlooks the beautiful Guilford green.

They roast and grind their own coffee. This place out does the DD's by a mile with their great coffee. Also wonderful selection of delicious pastries and breakfast sandwich items.

Cilantro has excellent coffee and a variety of pastries. The wraps, paninis, and sandwiches are excellent. I prefer the paninis. As the cold weather comes they will start to have soup! The staff is nice and this is a great place to meet with fiends...More
