My daughter is a student at Connecticut College, and we have been pleased with our explorations of the dining scene in New London and nearby towns like Mystic. Saturday night, our family ate dinner at South Side Bistro for the first, and certainly not the last, time. We had a delicious dinner comprised of fresh food prepared very well. The owner was very friendly and gracious, and the service was excellent. It is a small restaurant with just a few entrees to choose from, but those choices were enough. Prices were reasonable. It is BYOB, but Thames River Wines and Spirits is a door or two down on Bank Street, and they have an excellent selection of wines.
We had breakfast that morning at the Broken Yolk, which was off the beaten path on Montauk Street. This was an unpretentious, friendly breakfast and lunch restaurant, with good food at reasonable prices. The short stack of pancakes (strawberry, blueberry, chocolate chip or the daily special, apple strawberry cheesecake!) was enormous. Lots of choices on the menu. This was a great little breakfast place I would also return to.
