Good Food In Mystic, Connecticut

Mystic Connecticut is such a cute and well known sea-side town.
There are lot of city guides and pinions on where you should shop/eat/visit but today I wanted to share some places that I personally enjoyed going to grab a bite to eat. I love highlighting local businesses who have a passion for putting our quality food & product for those who visit them. I’m also a sucker for places that just feel like a warm hug from a friend & all of these places have that quality.

If you’re visiting the area soon you’ve got to check out these places and I promise you won’t be disappointed. I’m a lover of all types of good food (as most of us are) and these places delivered above and beyond the normal eating experience. Good food is good food!


1 Grass & Bone

This place BLEW ME AWAY.
Being a southerner in the northeast means when I find a diamond in the rough with food that taste like back home I get really excited! Eddie & I went in and got one of their lunch specials which was a ham & cheese sandwich and a bowl of rotisserie chicken & vegetable soup. This wasn’t just any sandwich and soup combination – this was beyond delicious. I actually took a bite of the soup an almost started weeping because it tasted just like my grandmas recipe back home. The sandwich was fresh cut ham, scrumptious cheese, and buttery rye bread. Eddie and I both wanted to take more home with us and eat it for dinner.
The pride themselves on selling locally sourced meats and have a wide array of meat you can get from their shop and I promise that you will regret it if you don’t eat here while in town!

2 Jealous Monk

Talk about a cozy place.
The minute we walked in I felt like I was transported back to Europe into a neighborhood pub. They have A TON of draft beers on tap (at least 32!) so if you like to taste different brews you’d be in the right place. I scarfed down a proper burger that was so dang good and their fries – goodness their fries are amazing. I’m so glad we took a recommendation to check them out.

3 Bleu Squid

Don’t let the name fool you, this isn’t a seafood joint. This place is known for their grilled cheeses and desserts and both are great! Also their breakfast sandwiches and hot lobster roll = SO GOOD.

4 M Bar 

This place is the cutest; it’s a restored gas station featuring coffee, wine, spirits and inspired small plates. I met a girl for brunch and coffee at this place and let me tell you – it was so dang good!
Definitely a must-go place for brunch. I haven’t had their dinner but it all looks very tasty!

5 Karma Kitchen

I stumbled upon this place when looking for more of a clean-eating option and there weren’t many places in the area that offered that. I’ve had their smoothies, bowls, and hot items = all were delicious!

6 Sift
I’ve mentioned Sift before but I had to include it in this list.
Their baked goods are SO GOOD (those sea salt chocolate chip cookies are out of this world) and so are their croissants. I’ve gotten their vegetable croissant and it was so filling and delicious and was a great breakfast/lunch option (or even dinner!)
