From fine dining to oyster bars and casual fare, this village has it all
The dining in Stonington Borough is as eclectic as the shopping in this charming seaside village – and just as satisfying. Start your day with a stack of blueberry pancakes at Noah’s Restaurant, grab lunch at the Yellow House Coffee and Tea Room and go for casual seaside dining at Dogwatch or the oyster bar and innovative cuisine at the Water Street Cafe. Or go for an authentic Mexican meal at the Milagro Cafe. Locals will tell you every restaurant is terrific. It just depends on what you feel like eating! And if you just want to “graze,” check out Saturday morning’s Farmers Market, on the Town Dock in the summer and in the Velvet Mill when the season turns colder.
