“Not Customer Focused”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Ate here two years ago and was very satisfied. What a difference a couple of years has made, and not in a good way. Receptionist put our name on the list and then disappeared for 20 minutes. A waitress found us a table. Another waitress took our order. She brought coffee we didn't order, but forgot the water we asked for. My husbands eggs were cooked as ordered, but they forgot the bacon. Finally brought it after we finished eating. The pancakes had an off taste. I don't mind paying a little more for breakfast when the food and experience are worth it, but in this case, it was a major disappointment.

“Ok breakfast on a cold Monday morning”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went to Ocean Breeze on the recommendation from some on line resources. Expected the best but got an ok breakfast. Service started out slow but greatly improved. Needed to send back bacon due to it not being well done as requested. Cinnamon french toast was a disappointment, no cinnamon flavor and the bread was only coated not soaked in the egg mixture.

“Delicious muffins of all kinds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I had the Greek omelet. It was well made with fresh ingredients. And quite large. The muffins are delicious and extensive in variety. Probably the best cranberry nut muffin I have ever eaten. The muffins were also quite large.

“Very Best Breakfast in Newport!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

While in Newport you have to stop in for a very special Breakfast and best coffee in Newport. while I recommend everything on the menu (I think we ate there 6 times) I particularly liked the Lobster omelet and Blueberry coffee (fresh brewed not sugar shots). Flavored coffee changes daily as well as breakfast specials. If you have a lighter appetite the breakfasts are all big enough to share, which is what we did on several occasions.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Service was horrible. The cost exorbitant, Omelettes and coffee for two: $29 before tip - ridiculous. The place is a filthy dump. Cramped and dirty. We waited 1/2-hour to be served. Food was ordinary. Don't even think about going there.
