My husband and I love Cafe Toscana! Arturo makes a mean breakfast sandwich and mocha coffee! It's small and intimate with a varied menu. A must try when in Old Saybrook.

Everything fresh, made to order, delicious. Since I discovered Caffè Toscano, I don't go anywhere else! Arturo makes my coffee perfect every time!

If you're looking for something more than Starbucks nearby, come down the block to this tiny establishment. Open for breakfast and lunch, you can also get take-out. Under former ownership, my complaint was that the cook was much too slow. But that was years ago and the new owner gets your food out much quicker. I just got a breakfast... More

Don't be surprised by the small size of this coffee shop as the coffee and food are excellent! My friend and I biked to this small shop, passing up the chain coffee shop as we prefer to support local businesses. We were so glad we did! The owner runs a one man show but takes the time to ensure you... More

Don't overlook this unassuming cafe. The owner is very friendly and willing to customize anything on the menu. Ingredients are fresh, and my kids swear he has the best muffins in town. Don't miss the tomato, mozzarella, and basil panini with balsamic vinegar -- it's my favorite item (especially when I ask for caramelized onions.) They've also just added a... More

While the menu is not extensive, they are flexible to make you what you want. Eggs and omelettes are as good as you get anywhere else in town. On a great day you can sit outside and just enjoy the small town atmosphere.

Stopped in based on other reviews. We had the veggie sandwich and the chicken fajita wrap. Both were excellent. It's a small place run by one man, at least while we were there. The food was the best part.

A cute little place on the south side of Main St. Everything was made to order. Eggs and omelette's with some fresh baked goods thrown in. My breakfast wrap was fresh and delicious. The egg white omelette was as well. I even ordered a grilled banana oat muffin that was excellent. A quick easy place for breakfast!

here's a small former house on the main shopping drag with delicious sandwiches and soup, recommended by a local merchant - good service and nice to help out the locals
