“Great local eatery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Large serving sizes, unique menu that will please everyone and cozy atmosphere make this place a sure thing when visiting Newport. The 2 piece french toast option is similiar to a 4 piece option at most other places. Can't go wrong with the menu options!

“Best breakfast and morning service in Newport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Creative selection of breakfast foods, for all ages, not surprisingly heavy on the banana (for the monkey). Stuffed french toast, with peanut butter, and banana walnut pancakes are excellent. Corned beef omelet is a hit with the men in my family, the sausage is generous and well seasoned, and the coffee is real coffee.
Atmosphere is lively and comfortable, with pictures of the traveling sock monkey all over the place. Reserving the monkey for a trip can be difficult, everyone wants to travel with the monkey so there can be a wait. Only complaint is that there can sometimes be a longer wait for a tabe on the weekends, and the services, particularly for bussing tables, can be very slow. The waitstaff is very friendly and accommodating, they are usually just understaffed and can't get to everything on the floor.

“Really GOOD!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

I went there with my family. It was a nice little place. A food network person was there. Don't go for lunch. But it is really good

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

I was surprised to read anything negative about this place. We have been there several times and we think its just a great local place with delicious food and good service. Just an off day must be the only explanation. If you're looking for a good local out of the way place for a delicious breakfast, then this is the place for you.
