Yellow House is delightful. You have to love a place that truly believes "the customer is always right". Great coffee, pastries and sandwiches. A really nice mellow friendly vibe.

Walked in without knowing what to expect. Got a lovely lunch - big tasty sandwiches and excellent iced chai. Friendly helpful staff. Will visit again!

Really enjoyed my iced chai with soy and the free wifi at this cool and funky coffee house on Stonington's main drag.

Good coffee and chai. Reasonable prices: nothing is really cheap around here. The pastries are good and the staff was friendly. Great place to stop and take a coffee break while walking around Stonington. No dedicated parking.

Small, but neat. Funky décor, self serve coffee and bus your own dishes. Quick service with delicious bagel egg sandwiches.

We were staying in town for the weekend and stopped by this place (really cute from outside) on our first day! What a mistake...the coffee was lacking flavor and lunch items that we got (#2 and #5) were lukewarm and overpriced. #2 was turkey with chipotle mayo where avocado was a listed ingredient. But where was the avocado? We asked... More

This is a unique place. They are very nice we went there when Noah's was closed on Monday's. I like the people and it is a cute place for a cap or coffee but not a full breakfast spot just cozy and charming.
