Nice stop by the water

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.

At the end of Bannisters Wharf with seating including steamer chairs looking out over the water this Cafe could not be in a better position. On arrival, and having ordered drinks and food we got into discussion with a group of local residents who advised us we had come to the right place, the best coffee in Newport and the... More

We always loom for local coffee houses for our morning coffee, we walked 25 minutes in the cold, blowing snow to find this SMALL spot on the wharf. What a disappointment. The medium coffee was only 8 or 10 oz, and it was more expensive than Starbucks. I am not a fan of Starbucks, but I would have enjoyed their... More

Went in for a coffee and treats. I had the best piece of chocolate chip banana bread! It was so good, I went back for another piece! Great place to stop during a day of shopping in Newport.

Simply the best place in Newport for coffee. The views, the service and of course the coffee, just cannot be beaten. After a day of exploring Newport, you are guaranteed a relaxing break at Coffee Grinder.

Coffee Grinder is a great Coffee House located behind The Black Dog store at Bannisters Wharf with a terrific view of the Bay. The coffee, tea and hot chocolate are all outstanding not to mention the fresh baked goods! Indoor and outdoor seating is available and the owner is very nice and knowledgeable about the area. We have been to... More

There was nothing I disliked about it! Location is great, at the end of Bannister's Wharf. The owner has baked goods, breakfast items, outdoor seating (protected) as well as adirondack chairs that sit in the sun. Perfect place for coffee and the owner is wonderful too. Can't wait to go back!

The shop is right on the harbir on Bowen's Wharf. Decent cofee and a nice seating area right on the water. Nice place for a rest stop while exploring the shops on the wharfs. Good scones also.

Ordered a cup of chowder and a cup of coffee. Both were delicious.. We sat outside with our huge cup of coffee (in a huge ceramic cup with a saucer). That was a nice touch. The chowder was great and we enjoyed the view of the harbor. Great pastries also.

Lovely place to watch the world go by with a hot drink and pastry. I would imagine it gets very busy in the summer, worth a look.
