I go there about once every week for breakfast. The food is always well prepared, the place is spotless and the wait staff friendly and make you welcome. A great place in the center of Newport.

On a damp, miserable November day we stopped for lunch at Brenda's. The hot turkey sandwich & fries served with cranberry sauce and coleslaw hit the spot. Clean, cozy environment and friendly service.
