Many choices on menu. I had the best cup of coffee I have had in a very long time. Baked goods were very yummy. They even have homemade treats for dogs that my dogs loved!

Looking for an EXCEPTIONAL cup of richly roasted coffee nestled in a neighborhood nook of Newport? Look no further. Roesmary & Thyme has all you need in the caffeine delivery department, as well as some sinful confections and breakfast sandwiches. The only bummer? They're closed...More

The food is really good and the coffee is excellent. The location has poor parking and limited seating. Overall it is worth visiting.

There are two spots right in front of the place or you can park a view blocks down on one of the side street near the churches like we did.
