It’s More Than You Expected!
A local landmark for over 60 years, the Rustic Café has been a dance hall, wine bar, local watering hole and now one of the greatest “little secrets” in East Lyme. Both locals and summer tourists alike love the Rustic Café’s fresh seafood, tasty ribs and popular hamburgers paired with their tasty beers and cocktails.
Boasting a cozy atmosphere with an open wood-beam aesthetic, the Rustic Café is a great bar with an extensive menu. Fittingly referred to as a "GastroPub,” the Rustic Café serves skillfully prepared dishes more reminiscent of fine dining than of a bar. If you stop by the Rustic Café, you can enjoy great conversation along with fantastic food, beer, wine and cocktails.
Patrons of the Rustic Café treat the place as their own. Musicians show up with their instruments, often on Friday and Saturday nights (and yes, a little karaoke too). A band has been known to show up on a Thursday night to play for their friends. Out on the patio you will be treated to an inviting fire and bucolic setting and possibly a troubadour!
