“Nice breakfast spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2010

We ate here both mornings of our visit and had a simple, healthy breakfast. The place is right on the corner of main street and was a great open spot to dine and read the newspaper. The coffee was wonderful and the fruit/waffle/egg plate was very fresh.

“higest quality coffee with higher price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2008

Been there quiet a lot with a friend of mine who lives in newport.

My first impression of the cafe was that it's compty. Employees were very friendly, its not like starbucks where they do not care even if you die as long as you paid for your coffee.

Second, coffees were somewhat expensive. starbucks as a standard, since they are the most well known coffee maker, miaafe priced their coffee a buck or two more with same size.

Third and the most important, their coffee. Simply put, best in town. Starbucks is out of question when it comes to comparing the quality of coffee. I was told that the bean they use is almost 3 times the price of starbuck beans. Might be of exaggeration, but their coffee was surely 3 times better than that of starbucks.
