“Good American breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I walked here from my hotel on Goat Island, Newport specifically to have a good value-for-money no-nonsense American breakfast and I wasn't disappointed. Eggs done just the way I asked with suitable accompaniments and prompt service. The coffee was "bottomless" , its quality was nothing to write home about; however, coffee in America rarely is.

“A rushed coffee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We arrived, not realising that it was closing time. We had ordered our drinks and cookies and paid for them, to be told they were closing in 5 minutes and then were asked to leave after the 5 minutes had elapsed. We had just driven from Plymouth so were looking forward to a rest. Worse still it had started to rain. The lady was helpful with some directions we needed, but overall it was not a great experience and the drinks and cookies were average.

“Good Coffee - Bad Hot Chocolate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

My husband and I took a stroll through the town and stopped in here to get a coffee for him and a hot chocolate for me. My husband said the coffee was pretty good. I took one sip of my hot chocolate and threw it out. It didn't even taste like chocolate at all. About the only good about it was the whipped cream that was put on top. Thankfully I found another place that sold Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate (can't go wrong with that!).

“Good coffee, wifi, peace and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Away from downtown Newport but easy to get to, this cafe has superb coffee, sandwiches, desserts, snacks and a very comfortable seating area.

If you like to view photos you might see a beautiful wall display of photos taken and mounted by a local photography club.
