LIS BAKERY: BAGELS, BROWNIES and BREW

unnamed-1

One of my favorite take-out breakfast spots downtown Mystic is Lis Bakery. They have some of the freshest bagels in town (I usually order a spinach and pair it with their iced chai latte). If you are planning to stay and eat there is a small breakfast bar, but be sure to go back when the weather warms up; bistro sets are set up outside for you to enjoy your treat and take in a view of the harbor.

Other favorites include cinnamon buns, chocolate croissants, and I’ve yet to try them, but locals rave about the Russian Tea Cakes.

Stop in warm up with a hot cup of joe and a grasshopper bar or red velvet cupcake. Planning an event? They also take  custom orders for pies, cakes, cookies and more!

Cheers to local homemade goodness,

This is truly a great event. The Mystic Arts Center will be buzzing with locals getting down on the dance floor, enjoying specialty cocktails and mingling with friends. Tickets ($40 in advance and $45 at the door) include two drinks, snacks, music and dancing with a portion of the proceeds benefiting L.U.N.C.H. (Local United Network to Combat Hunger).

Funds raised at the Snowflake Social will also enable the Downtown Mystic Merchants to continue to bring events to downtown Mystic such as the Farmers Market, Mystic Pirate Invasion, Spring Stroll and Solstice Luminary. Fabulous local items will be raffled and baskets will be there for you to bid on as well! Tickets can be purchased at The Captain Daniel Packer Inne and Steamboat Inn.

Cheers to getting your groove on,
