Probably Newport's most visited restaurant. Keep an eye out for Groupons for Mokka, and you won't be dissapointed. Considering we bought a $20 meal for $10 and we ate for $21 before discount. Ten bucks for a full meal is fantastic! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner - this is the place to go for a great meal. Sandwiches are LARGE and... More

I've always wanted to try this restaurant but I guess I never will. I called to see if they took reservations because I wanted to make one for an anniversary breakfast with my husband. I called and asked if they took reservations and the lady on the phone didn't even answer my question. With attitude in her voice she told... More

Party of three and we each got something different. We were all very happy with our food. My husband loved the 3 meat frittata. I got the bagel sandwich special with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, capers, red onion and avocado. It was excellent! The other person in our party ordered pancakes, eggs and sausage and was very pleased. We will... More

I'm normally not big on French toast, but their cornflake crusted French toast with creme brûlée sauce is wonderful! Nice atmosphere, we will definitely be back!

Happily surprised to discover a great breakfast place in what I thought was a bar! Our server Gail was both patient and helpful with newbies! I ordered the cornflake crusted French toast with Creme Brûlée sauce and sliced fresh bananas...oh mercy, heavenly!

great place to grab brunch with several different good options, be sure to arrive early or plan to have time on your hands as it can get quite busy on weekends during brunch time.

I have been visiting Mokka off and on for quite some time and I am sorry to say the service has gone downhill. There has almost always been a wait to get in but once seated, you should be treated better. Wrong food brought to table. Bill wrong. The list can go on. I am sorry to say that with... More

I took my daughter out for a belated birthday brunch. I had the best French Toast with bananas and pastry cream I've ever tasted. We also had goetta a local favorite. The menu has many dishes I would like to try in the future! Our server was friendly! This is a great restaurant!

Waited half hour for late Sunday brunch and hostess decided to seat us with one small child upstairs with two other families of children. She must have know how ill mannered these families were and sat us there anyhow. Once we saw that the other kids were running about and screaming, there was no help from the parents or the... More
