The coffee is average, the muffins gooeyl the lady serving was efficient and friendly and the prices high but I would come again just to sit and while away an hour or so.

Looking for a great place to sit down and enjoy the view? This is it! Looking for a good place for coffee? Not so much... Young lady behind the counter was very friendly and accommodating. Popped in for an iced latte. Was hoping to enjoy one of those delicious just made brews poured over ice. Yeah, no. Coffee was kept... More

A post-lunch coffee was in order when we stumbled upon this place down on the harbour. Coffee Grinder is a cute little cafe with chirpy service, a counter brimming with homemade baked treats and some coveted Adirondack chairs on the deck. Pity the coffee had an over-roasted flavour.

Cute location, on the wharf but for 2 cups of coffee, a muffin and a danish, it was over $15.00. Not bad if the pastries had been good but tasted like they were manufactured and frozen. Even heated they were soggy and tasteless.

Great coffee served by a small local business at the end of a pier, what's not to love. Service is a bit slow as the kitchen is tiny and only the owner works here most days. The coffee is great though and served in awesome hug cups. The pastries are pretty good too and she'll even heat them up for... More

Not only is the coffee/espresso great, but the customer service and views/atmosphere is topnotch! Comfortable and quaint. What more can you ask for when enjoying a nice espresso! Quite honestly, the Coffee Grander is one of the best things about Newport!

Grad a cup of fresh Joe and a wonderful chocolate chip scone. There are tables to sit seaside and enjoy these treats while looking at the ships.

This is a great place that is much more intimate than the usual chain. Our quiche and muffins were great. Very cozy with a nice view.

The setting out on the wharf on a warm sunny late autumn day doesn't get much better than this when you can sip a good espresso coffee (apologies to most Americans but we find the average coffee quality awful), nibble on some quality cakes/pastries and a plain but very fresh sandwich. Reasonable prices to boot
