“So quaint! A "must do" when in Mystic!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

I vacation in the Mystic / Stonington area every Summer and the Yellow House is part of the daily routine. It's a quaint little coffee house on a quaint little street with fantastic little shops and tons of atmostphere! Fantastic coffee and bagels as well as a great menu that will satisfy every taste. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area - or not, it's worth the extra drive. Tons to see around it and the main street ends at the ocean with a great little beach and awesome view!

“Friendly coffee house with fresh pastries and lunch specials”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Located in Stonington Boro the Yellow House is a comfortable spot for breakfast and light lunch (soup and sandwiches). The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is pleasant and the offerings are varied. Outdoor sitting is possible when the weather cooperates.

“Great Sandwiches”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

I've had a couple breakfast sandwiches and paninis here and they've always been great. Loved the free chocolate chip cookie I got when I checked in on Foursquare too!

“nice little place, but mainly for the location”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

we say outside on a lovely sunny October day, which was pleasant...but moreso because of the location than the coffee. We got a hot chocolate for my son which was less than tasty. Coffee unremarkable. Staffed by kids, so I guess it's always going to be random.

“The only local coffee shop in the 'boro.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

As with most places mostly staffed by teenagers, the quality and consistency of what you get varies wildly. Recent visits have yielded anything from cream cheese garnished with bagel to a bagel that looked like someone cleaned off the last schmear of cream cheese off a knife on it. Sadly the quality of the coffee and the level of service seems to vary as well. A recent upgrade is the use of Dave's coffee.

However, most come here weekend mornings to meet the neighbours and catch up on local town news and events. There are 2 small tables on each side of the door, a doggy water bowl and secure tie-out on one side to leave your pooch. The interior is decorated with artwork available for purchase by local artists, books and pamphlets on the town.

Despite variations on what you get, this establishment is still an important part of Stonington's local culture.
