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

This is a fab place for grabbing a great coffee and cake and sitting out in the sun whilst enjoying an amazing view of the harbour. A must for that morning read of the paper, wind down after shopping or basically taking the time to enjoy the sun and contemplate life! Seen the review of 'yucky latte' and can't share... More

Hard to beat this place for breakfast. With good coffee, perfectly prepared eggs, the best corned beef hash anywhere, and efficient service, I can't wait to return.

Good grief! Use a quality espresso bean and learn to make a good cup of coffee.. My latte tasted as if it was made from used coffee grinds.

We headed here for coffee with our son's family our first morning in Newport. The service was great and the coffee was outstanding. Above all, you can drink your coffee while sitting in Adirondack chairs watching yachts and other vessels come and go while being absorbed in all that is Newport! We were with our 5 year old grandson and... More
