HAVE LUNCH IN ITALY, NEXT DOOR

THE DEACON is a proud partner to Caffé Marche – a little taste of Italy right next door. Authentically Italian, the caffé serves breakfast and lunch six days a week, offering specials like handmade gnocchi, and our tried-and-true menu items like a cheese and meat board, penne all’ortalana and salads.

Join us for breakfast and lunch until 2:30. Espresso, cappuccino and gourmet teas are available all day until 8 p.m.

SCOOP UP SOME GELATO

The James Pharmacy (next door) was Old Saybrook’s first working pharmacy and later, a soda counter. Miss Anna James dispensed medicine – and ice cream floats – for 55 years to locals, travelers and even Katharine Hepburn.

Today the Italian owners serve Italian ice cream (gelato) as a tribute to its legacy. We make our gelato on the premises, fresh daily. Flavors like Lemon, Blueberry and Peach – plus traditional Italian favorites like Pistachio and Stracciatella.

Stop by and taste one. Or two, or three. We don’t mind.
