“Skimpy sandwich”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Yellow house is fine for coffee and a bagel but I made the mistake of ordering a sandwich last summer which, if I remember correctly, was turkey breast, avocado and bacon. The 1 slice of bacon was about 2" x 1" and the avocado was a smear in the middle of the bread. When I opened it up to eat it, I couldn't believe it so I took it back and advised that it was highly inadequate. They redid it, but wasn't that much better. As one of the previous advisors said, there are teenagers working there in the summer and quality may vary but I will never order a sandwich there again.

Have breakfast here most mornings when I am not traveling. They have "Daves" coffee which is really nice (Boro blend is my favorite) . I have the oatmeal with raisins and h&h. Some tasty vegan items as well..

“So quaint! A "must do" when in Mystic!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
