Chai will never be the same

I am not a coffee drinker, by I do consider myself a connoisseur of chair and, let me tell you, this place served the best chai to ever grace my lips. So good, in fact, I can hardly drink the stuff any more without day dreaming of what I experienced here. My husband is a coffee drinker and shares... read more

I have been going to this special seaside coffee destination for years. I have gone in the morning, afternoon and at night. I have always had a perfect cup of coffee. All of the pastries are homemade and delicious, especially the spinach turnovers. The best part of this little gem is sitting outside watching the beautiful boats come in and... More

Delicious baked goods and friendly service at Coffee Grinder are the perfect way to start your day in Newport. Enjoy a million-dollar view for the price of a coffee and muffin!

Ok here is a tip to end a perfect evening: stop by the outdoor bar of The Black Pearl and order a Sambuca. Pay, and take your plastic cup of Sambuca down to The Coffee Grinder and order the espresso. Sit in the Adirondack chairs and sip your espresso with Sambuca. Nothing better!

Yes, the place was not cheap. However, it was well worth the money that my friends and I returned every morning during our stay in Newport (even though breakfast was provided in our hotel). The view of the harbor was peaceful and beautiful. The hostess of the coffee shop was very friendly -- she could talk about anything with anyone.... More

Great coffee where the owner would genuinely try and do you a coffee the way you want it. First morning in town called at 4 other coffee spots- all would only serve in takeaway cardboard buckets. This place was so different, as the owner served and took payment ultra efficiently but still had time to ask how I wanted my... More

A little hole in the wall at the end of the wharf. Stopped by after visiting black dog for a coffee and a muffin then sat in the sun watching how the 1% lives. Service today was excellent - friendly with a smile.

Central Newport is charming but it's not always easy to just hang out by the water. This is a nice down-to-earth cafe with relaxing chairs and a view.
