Located right across from Olde Mistick Village (up on the hill above Starbucks - you can't see it from the road) and the Mystic Aquarium, and near the Seaport. This grocery store has excellent ready-made foods on a hot bar/salad bar and at the deli, they have pizzas too and a large indoor/outdoor seating area. Their breakfast buffet on the weekends is great for a quick meal.
