More deliciousness than you expect! Lots of breakfast danishes, muffins and croissants not to mention the macaroons and my fav the Opera cake! Easy to try lots when it's a slice of this or that behind the glass. Eat in or take out. Waitstaff very helpful too!
Incredible... this has become our family favorite, and we stop by weekly to enjoy delicious pastry’s (their chocolate chip cookies are the BEST I’ve ever had) and mystics best cup of coffee. The environment is welcoming and bright, and very clean. We love that there is outdoor seating available, and I so appreciate that it is a kid-friendly location. I can bring my little ones for a special snack without feeling out of place. The staff is wonderful as well. Extremely polite and friendly!
Good atmosphere, good food and great staff.
O man is this a great dessert. Must check it out if you are in the area.
Super yummy pastries! I am glad the place has expanded.
Love the new indoor seating!
Delicious pastries and coffee, especially when enjoyed on their second-level patio area. It's also fun to watch the bakers make their pastries from behind the glass (similar to a Krispy Kreme).
I always enjoy a visit to Sift in Mystic. The food is fantastic and the staff is always friendly and very helpful.
I don’t know how we made it out without buying at least one of everything. It all looked incredible. Happy to report that everything we did buy was absolutely delicious. The macaroons were the highlight. Give the lemon/olive oil one a try. Several other gluten-free options as well.
Another trip but during construction nothing has changed the scones are still as tasty as ever. Can't wait for our visit next week.
I've been wanting to visit for months and wasn't disappointed!
Out of this world. The individual deserts are of the hook. Cookies, cakes, bread, sandwiches. Must try the croissants. Wonderful! Rooftop deck is a great addition!
Excellent place for gourmet sandwiches, delicious desserts and baked goods. Beautiful Roof top available. Great customer service. Highly recommended.
Variety. Their croissants are loaded with butter. The almond croissant is heading with cream. When it's sunny I will go back and sir in the shop and try one of their espressos and see if they make sour dough loaves. The town is like a movie set and everyone is polite, sweet and kind.
What an incredible spot! Super awesome pastries and too-botch undeniably eye popping coffee. My family had an overwhelming preference for the lemon and blueberry scones! Parking can be a little tricky and Sunday mornings are slammed so keep that in mind when visiting. My recommendation is grab your scones for tomorrow the afternoon before if you’re visiting the area to avoid the long lines! It is a must to visit!!
Absolutely amazing, I had a ham and cheese croissant and it was one of the best things I've ever eaten. This place is a must if you are ever in Mystic.
The best bakery I have visited in the past decade! Everything is excellent!
The best bakery I've ever been to and I expected the prices to be higher. They were very reasonable and the staff couldn't be any nicer!
Avant garde luxurious bakery. Finest baked goods in Mystic and surrounding area. Large inside eatery area and outdoor seating area. Friendly staff. Kudos on the total renovation you had made.
Delicious... We visited late in the day @ 8:15pm - low inventory. So, go early to pick up the scrumptious food!
Such an awesome place to have lunch!
Nice, clean and fantastic customer service
The everything croissants are amazing! My husband and I love them. Next time we visit we're going to buy them all out!
Anything worth having is worth the wait and I promise, the tasty treats at Sift are worth waiting for. Delicious breads and scones as well as other Delectables will have you coming back again and again.
I expected better for the reputation and price. The service was a bit of a Chinese fire drill. But it's extraordinarily popular and so deserves another try.
Yumm! Unexpected to be so beautiful and delicious!
Tasty treats from the winner of America's Next Great Baker
Delicious pastries except they attended the person behind me first ... literally ignored me. there were a TON of almond croissants and this white chick gives me the smallest one with no filling on top of that she also gave me the smallest cookie when there were a lot of cookies... I just assumed she was racist. My friends and I will not be coming back because of that.
I compared this croissant to Franks at Foxwoods and let me tell you that extra $1 at sift is worth it. As for the Cinnamon pecan roll I rather have a regular Cinnabon roll from the chain ( also at Foxwoods) . The brownies were eh the cookies were eh but the opera cake was good!
I'm just glad I have to drive there. If this was closer... The best pastry I ever tasted.
Great food, great coffee, amazing baked goods
I waited 20mins for a coffee with only 2 people ahead. The girls said it's because they have new equipment and don't know how to use efficient yet.....
Sift is one of New England's finest bakeries...The kind of place that offers fresh-baked cookies & confections, to satisfy just about ANY & all customers!
This is almost embarrassing to admit, but it just goes to show how much I love Sift. My friend and I hiked at Napatree in Watch Hill and ended our visit there with some cups of cappuccino from Sift. Absolutely "good to the last drop". We then headed to Mystic for some shopping. We frequented Sift AGAIN and loaded up on cookies and coffee before heading home. I am a cookie aficionado. They are the BEST!! All flavors are so satisfying. Soooo, Kudos to the friendly staff in both locations and to Adam for being such a talented baker. I know Food Network is running that competition again. It doesn't matter to me who wins this time around, because in my eyes, Adam will always wear the crown of "Best Baker in America" Lisa D
Opening day at mystic sift was exciting!!! This French bakery is total 5 star from it’s pastries, breads , etc...to its staff, it’s amazing remodel and just love viewing there spacious clean kitchen. Well worth the ride from niantic.
Unbelievable baked goods!!! The chocolate croissants are huge and so unbelievably delicious! Still soft after 3 days. Also had the blueberry cheesecake, peanut butter cookies and opera cake. Gained 4 pounds just from this place!!! Everything is amazing. Staff is super friendly. They also have sandwiches and coffee.
Sift cannot be described in any way unless it is a synonym of amazing! Each pastry, each drink, each sandwich is crafted with care and lights up your taste buds as if they've been struck by lightning. If you haven't been there since the remodel, words don't do it justice! You have to see it for yourself. The rooftop is beautiful. The cafe is spacious and serene. It is perfect. Sift is a must try in Mystic!
Very good and great selection of baked goods. We'd already had lunch or I would have been tempted to try their sandwiches. Everything looked outstanding!
Consistently exotically delicious; a treat for the palate and a feast for the eyes!
As always...excellent place to nosh and chat!
The BEST Food, Staff, atmosphere and coffee.
Delicious meal and friendly service. Love the new renovation.
The food here is consistently amazing, the staff is consistently friendly, and the atmosphere/eating space is beautiful! You cannot get desserts like this anywhere else.
The best bakery I've ever been to. We visit at least once a month for a family date. The food is surprisingly inexpensive and so delicious! Their loaf of bread that looks like a head of wheat is the best bread I have personally ever had.
Best bakery in Connecticut and RI, hands down. Everything they make is literally the best version of that thing that we've ever tasted.
I highly recommend stopping in & picking up something to take home!!! The best! Also very important ALL of their staff were lovely!!
Absolutely positively the best cookies I have had anywhere. They literally make me nuts!!!
I might have OD'ed on sugar but it was worth it. Make sure to get there early because they are a limit bakery and will run out. Cookies are bomb!
Amazing spinach and artichoke croissants! Enormous and delicious chocolate chip/chocolate walnut and sea salt cookies.
As the Pastry is very good here. The quality of service is not the greatest. Too much disposable ware being used. The line staff are not trained well and generally don't know what the product's are made from. Some of the management staff are unprofessional when dealing with staff members. It would do upper management good to monitor the staff training more closely
There's a line but its worth the wait (and honestly, the line is processed very quickly). Highly recommend one of their hot chocolates!
I live for Sift! My only complaint is my last 2 orders have been missing items /given the wrong items and I live over an hour away so it is pretty disappointing.the new way they are handling customers with the new set up isn't working like it should. Ot sure if it is the people or what but when I pay for 3- $4+ croissants, pastry, bread and a cookie along with other items and drop almost $ 50 on the entire order I would like for it to be correct without me having to take the entire order apart before leaving
The pecan roll was so good. Reminded me of a great southern pecan roll. Yum!
Wish they have more variety
Always great, but avoid holiday weekends if you dont want to wait in 30 minute lines. My favorite item is the chocolate croissant but everything else I have tried has also been outstanding. Staff is very friendly.
Great place to get baked goods
I love to visit bakeries and try different pastries. My latest quest was to find a bakery shop that offers fancy french desserts. After visiting many shops i can confidently say that Sift Bake Shop has the best french desserts. They look very exquisite and taste divine!!!
Awesome bakery! Delicious scones...chocolate chip cookies...and assorted baked goods...place is worth the long wait for quality fresh baked good, staff was awesome n helpful....also they have a great outdoor deck/rooftop
Honestly the best croissants I've ever had. The atmosphere is great and the staff always friendly! It's really hard not to always order everything I want to from the ham and gruyere quiche to the macarons. There aren't enough great things to say about this place, my sister's always place orders whenever I go since I'm closer
The lemon meringue tart was as well executed as any I've ejad in the U.S.A. The brioche was very good, very very good, but not exceptional. I asked for it heated amd it came to me ice cold in the center. Otherwise, Sift would have been a 5
Most delicious and beautifully decorated pastries and breads we have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. We travel from the New Haven area just to patronize this wonderful bakery. It’s cozy atmosphere only adds to the friendly feeling you feel as soon as you enter. Staff is courteous and ready to help. We recommend anyone reading this review to put Sift on their must visit list!
Their desserts are excellent. These are the kind of bakeries you find in the cities like Chicago, NYC or San Francisco. The line was long but it moved fast. If you have a sweet tooth and still haven't been here, you should definitely go and try it.
Love it! Best croissants I have EVER had!
The food, the building, the customer service. Perfect across the board. We tried an array of sandwiches and desserts and each one was perfection. My wife even got a coffee with a shot of house made vanilla syrup. Coffee was cold brew and she said it was the best shes ever had. Theres an old saying i go by: do it right and do it once. These guys expanded and did it right the first time. Hats off to the sift family. You guys have definitely set the mark and provided a perfect experience.
Great bread but the deserts are lacking.
The best most decadent pastries a human could eat this side of heaven
Fancy shmancy. Long lines to get excellent baked goods and coffee if your in the neighborhood
This is a great bakery & well known. Everything is so fresh. It's hard to resist from buying the entire store.
I'd love to post a picture of the Cheese and Guava Danish but it's all gone so here's the sign... Having heard great things about Sift from a co-worker I made the hour and a half drive down. It was worth it, downtown Mystic can be terribly congested on the weekend so park in the Mystic Museum of art lot down the street. All of the baked good and macarons are super fresh and still well stocked at 3 in the afternoon. The Cinnamon sugar ebbioche my wife got was delicious also. No matter what your tastes in baked goods are you're bound to find something here! It's worth the drive from hours away.
Too many delicious looking things to only get one. Your eyes will be bigger than your belly for sure! The seating is tight with plenty of room outside. Hey, why not take your goodies for a walk? It's close to a great bookstore as well.
Amazing bakery!!! Everything was delicious!!! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!!
We expected the delicious food. Customer service was fast with a smile. Highly recommend.
The inside seating area is nice and the sidewalk area is pretty good too. There's a deck that I didn't get a chance to see, but I've heard good things. The drinks and pastries are incredible and I got to try a few samples of other stuff because of the re-opening event. Though most would assume a bake shop would be primarily serving breakfast items, there's quite a variety of options to choose from. I can safely say that I will be coming here over and over for all three different meal times and I want to go back already.
Enjoyed a quick dessert after lunch today. All treats looked delicious, carrot cake roulade, and coconut macaroons were delicious. Unique treats - understandable why the owner is now judging on the Food Network.
This place is amazing and our new go to place in Mystic from now on. It's an incredible bakery with a restaurant inside for breakfast and lunch. We had the chicken salad and roast beef sandwiches which were one of the best sandwiches we ever had. Everything is super fresh (including the made on premises bread and cakes, cookies, brownies, fancy beautiful pastries, etc.!!) You will think you died and went to heaven when you step in and smell the delicious smells! The prices were very reasonable, and the portions huge! You order from the counter, they make it fast and bring it to you. The place is modern and clean.
Most amazing place I'd go too so much if I lived there! Wonderful staff who help you and treat you as you are so special and they love to wait on you and food is beyond amazing!! Atmosphere is awesome!! You walk out with a joyful experience
We ordered way too much food, because it's impossible to choose, and we didn't regret it at all.
This is, hands down, the best bakery I've ever had food from. We've travelled from NY just to go here and it was totally worth the 2.5 hr car ride even with a toddler in the back. I got a brownie which just melted in my mouth, a slice of opera torte which was divine and a chocolate croissant which was my favorite. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful place as well as the staff and o got a glimpse of Adam Young, the genius behind it all!
Best pastries I've ever had Macron's are to die for!
Ordered sandwiches for a picnic, cookies for a sweet snack and croissants for an amazing breakfast the next day. Everything is delicious.
Buttery, crispy, and delicious! The most amazing pastries, I only wish I remembered the name of the cinnamon knots, so good!
Wonderful breads and pastries,I haven't had a chance to try their coffee yet
Best desserts I have ever had. I highly recommend this bakeshop.
The food and pastries were excellent. It's primarily a takeout location and the shop is very small. There are a few seats so plan to walk or wait. Had the bacon and egg and chive sandwich for brunch. Bought chocolate chip and oatmeal blueberry cookies for later. My CC cookie was very good. Crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle. Just the way I like them. My husband had the oatmeal and was surprised by the blueberries but said it was really good. Their croissants are huge! Choices of a variety of French macaroons, cookies, cakes, bread and sandwiches.
The baked goods at Sift are so soft and delicious and it doesn't hurt to see Adam from Spring Baking Championship. He's so handsome in his chefs uniform. I was truly impressed with the quality of these sweet treats.
This was the highlight of the evening. After dinner we stopped at Sift for my wife to browse for dessert and the lady asked if I needed any assistance. I told her that I had a severe dairy allergy and did not believe she had anything for me. She responded that they had dairy free cookies and I was shocked. Purchased a chocolate chip and a ginger cookie and told her how great it was that they had a dairy free option. She then proceeded to break the last chocolate chip and threw it in for free. It was WONDERFUL and the service provided by this member of the staff was OUTSTANDING. If you are in Mystic you need to stop at Sift as it is GREAT!!!!!
Such a great local place. Great food and treats as well as a great new space to sit inside and out. A wonderful treasure for Mystic and everyone who visits! Highly recommend. Just save me an Ebbioche.
Nice bakery where you can watch them bake. They even offer free cucumber water. It tasted like pickles.
I took my family out for a treat, then we were jumped in line by several people because they have no clear system for ordering, just a bunch of people yelling next up and down the line. Then they mixed up our order and we didn’t get what we ordered. Although the food looks good the service is awful and they failed to deliver a simple order and took an extremely long time. I recommend any other shop over this overpriced chaotic location. Hard pass.
There aren't many places I have visited in New England that greet me with such genuine smiles as if I've been a customer for years, or that make my morning better for having stopped by. The lattes are in fantastic flavors like Vanilla Lavender, Cardamom Honey, and my personal favorite Rosemary Ginger, and the sweets are wonderful just to gaze at. I highly recommend Sift to anyone who's looking for incredible customer service and the perfect way to sweeten up your day.
This was recommended by an acquaintance who recently moved to Mystic as a must do stop on our mini two day vacation to Mystic. Our group of 3 couples all had salads for lunch earlier in the day at another locale so we could save room for Sift’s treats. The chocolate chip, walnut, sea salt cookies just out of the oven were to die for as were the tarts and croissants. Everyone then ordered extras to go before we left. Worthy of the many five star reviews.
It is a great coffee shop their pastries are so fresh and taste amazing!! Also had their rosemary ginger latte which i was skeptical but curious to try and it was worth it! It's definitely a new favorite in my book! Just a great place overall
Went tonight to go have coffee and dessert, received the coffees and the coffee's were both cold. Asked for two new coffees the coffee's were so strong it was like chewing on a coffee bean. Dessert was very disappointing, the carrot cake tasted like it had been sitting on the shelf for four days and had that refrigerator taste. My husband ordered a chocolate croissant and it only had two small chocolate chips dead in the center no chocolate throughout. There was barely any seating in the establishment I will not go back I do not recommend it .I spent $22 on dessert and was extremely disappointed ,the diner down the street has better carrot cake . My opinion is for somebody who is supposed to be a baker of the year is really not that good of a baker . I've had better desserts at diners then I had there , the shack in Groton has better desserts.
Best croissant I've ever had! Ham & cheese, almond...both excellent. Looking forward to going back for the chocolate croissant tomorrow. Bought a couple entremets for later. Can't wait! Baguette and cranberry walnut bread are also delicious!
The aesthetic alone gives off a luxurious and regal vibe, very clean and pristine. Staff members are friendly and accommodating. But of course the desserts! So many delicious items, be sure to try all the macarons!!
I would just say YUMMY. BEST chocolate chips ever and the peanut butter sandwich cookie was outstanding. Totally worth the trip to Mystic when in Connecticut
Coffee and cakes very nice, prices good for a touristy area. Air con not brilliant but front door always open with amount of customers
The cookies are sooooo good, we drive 45 minutes just to get them.
Do you love pastry? Then you gotta go.
We stopped in here in the morning of a holiday around 8am or so and the line was already almost out the door. My wife got the avacado toast which was a big thick slice of crusty bread with plenty of toppings. I got an egg sandwich and a nitro cold brew. Despite the line they had lots of staff that kept things moving right along. The space is very nice and big inside and they also have lots of outdoor spaces as well. We sat on the front patio which is small but comfortable. Friendly staff, great food, and a nice location. The perfect breakfast spot.
Very tasty (though pricey) pastries. Their homemade lemonade is good, too. I just wished they didn't use so much disposable ware and instead served the drinks in real glasses and real cutlery. Sit in the terrace and enjoy the breeze.
Editing my review to include how much I have lived off of their chocolate chip cookies through the later half of my pregnancy. I knew I was craving a cookie, but didn't realize it was Sift's Chocolate Chip until I got the chance to try them! Affordable and so, so yummy! I read a review that someone didn't like them (and thought they were $4 each), and I have to say, they must not know good baked goods. Well, more for me I suppose! Thanks for being my go to, Sift!
Great local bake shop. Really good croissants of many varieties. Delicious cookies and good coffee. Worth the wait in line!
Excellent food and service. Great upper deck and awesome pastry.
Great place. Recently upgraded (I’m told). Pastries etc are awesome (chocolate-raspberry croissant, macarons, cakes...). Sandwiches, quiches, etc are NOT made to order. They only have whatever remains. So, look at the glass case first before waiting in line. Nice little selection of wine and drinks for the patio.
Sift has undergone a lot of renovations in the past year and has more room overall to pick up yummy baked goods and to sit and enjoy them. The macarons are delicious and the sea salt chocolate chip cookie is salty/ sweet perfection. Must stop whenever in Mystic.
Wonderful. Best bakery ever. Now lite lunch products too. Parking in back.
Best sticky bun ever!! I think they brulee the sticky stuff so it's caramelized. Dough is almost like a croissant. Amazing!! Wish I'd taken a picture but couldn't stop eating it!
Outstanding in every way. Every detail is done with care, creativeness, and a complexity to the taste buds. Keep up the good work!
This was recommended to us. Small, some prepackaged cookies, shortbread, macaroons. Gift cards and coffee available. Super small, but worth a look. Did I mention … delicious?!
Delicious food! Amazing staff! I love the ambiance here. This place is popular so be ready for a long line on a beautiful morning.
Delicious food and coffee. Staff was friendly and polite. Wish they had a place like this in South Jersey!
OMG what yummy pastries, croissants, and sandwiches. Cannot wait to return.
Baked products are awesome. Sandwiches are pretty good. They kind of sit out and they would be better made fresh. Service is excellent and I like that they give you the option to use stainless steel utensils instead of plastic.
Stumbled upon this bakery in downtown Mystic. Amazing unique variety of high quality baked goods and cafe sandwiches! Had to go back to the counter to order more to go! Staff was super nice and the place is beautifully decorated. We’ll be back next time we’re in Mystic!
The navy brought us to Mystic in 2016. This place quickly became a favorite. Great coffee and great cookies (PB and chocolate walnut sea salt and oatmeal blueberry are my favorites!). We also love taking home loaves of their bread! Basically we like everything. I was living under some sort of rock and didn’t even know they’d become famous last year— but it’s so well-deserved. This will be one of the places we miss most when we have to leave this summer!
Love this place. There pastries are delicious, there chocolate croissants are my favorite, and there cakes are magnificent.
The chai iced coffee with espresso was really good. I’d go back.
Good sandwiches and drink at this bakery. The upstairs deck overlooked the water. Very nice bakery.
Crosisants are too bready and lacking in cripsness. Over rated.
This ham and cheese croissant was delicious. I alsonhad probably the best chocolate chip cookie ive ever had in my life.
Long lines but worth the wait! Everything we had was delicious! My husband loved the lox croissant sandwich and the kids love the baked goods!
Good stuff! Macaroons are tremendous.
Ive never had anything even ok here. All baked goods are wonderful!
All I have to say is, OMG, amazing, amazing, amazing
Too loud for us older guys with marginal hearing. All hard surfaces. Better outside. The pastry is as good as it gets though. Coffee very gourmet. My blueberry muffin was very good.
Love it great service and even better pastries
Best crossaints on Earth.
What an amazing bakery. Everything was A+++
Great baked goods. So good went back for seconds on our way home.
While it may not be my favorite bakery in Mystic it has definitely become my go-to when in town because I love trying everything they have. I sometimes find it to be a bit pricey but as I only go once in a while I don't mind the cost, I couldn't make this my everyday spot though for that reason.
Chocolate Walnut Sea Salt cookies are AmAzInG!!!!!
Solid. Usually pretty good but can be a little inconsistent. Staff rarely crack a smile.
Exceptional. I could have chosen one of everything. We can't wait to see what Adam Young has up his sleeves! #teamadam
Always a wonderful visit. Friendly staff, awesome bakery items.
No thrills. I purchased a croissant and a chocolate chip cookie. Croissant was pretty good, but nothing special. Cookie was flavorless and dry. Staff was helpful and friendly, and the dining room was pretty clean. I would not return to this bakery.
The most affordable yet absolutely delicious desserts I've ever tasted! My taste buds love you!
Delicious options and a fantastic staff!
Awesome place great baked goodies.
My mom wanted to go ever since she saw Adam on TV. She was so shocked when I asked the girl behind the counter if she could say hello. He was busy but yet came out and talked to her for awhile and even took a picture with her. She is now on her second cookie and loves it! What a great experience for her. Judging by the way she is eating the cookies we will be back. Thanks Adam!
I prefer the cookies, a good selection chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter and white chocolate macadamia to name a few
Baked goodies to die for, grab some and a coffe/latte/cappuccino then go up and sit on the deck
So good that I forgot to take a photo
Great service, even in the long line for breakfast. I had an egg sandwich and hot chocolate.
All I can say is check this place out!!! Thier bakery is AWESONE! Go once and you will go back
Great place. Can't wait till they expand the building. Adam is a real artist and a really nice guy!
Great local bakery with lots of sweet temptations.
Great experience. Not a ton of inventory but worth a stop.
