We had coffee and snacks here overlooking the harbour and it was absolutely beautiful. We were lucky enough to be able to sit on the gorgeous deck. Definitely worth the walk to the end of Bannisters Wharf for this café. We found the staff to be very friendly.

I Was so upset by the surly, unfriendly service ... The owner of this coffee shop was outright rude to not just myself and my friend, but to everyone who ordered! The coffee was mediocre ... Sad to say but Starbucks was much much much more pleasant! I strongly recommend avoiding this place!

Superb location, ok coffe and a very grumpy personal (I guess we just choose the wrong day). Worth for the location spot.

I had a few minutes to kill between a busy business day and a dreaded business dinner. This I decided to walk a little bit of downtown Newport. While wandering I found the Coffee Grinder. The person serving me, I discovered, was the owner who was charming. She served me cappuccino which was scrumptious. The combination of a great coffee... More

Tucked out of the way overlooking the water. Scenic and great coffee, too. What more could a traveler need? I'll be back to sit and relax.

The service in this coffee shop was amazing! They serve good coffee as well, with yummy home baked goods. There aren't many seats, but the location and view are great.

The Coffee Grinder is a fantastic place. I'm typically an on the run "large regular, cream & sugar" type.... which they accommodate well, but the menu offers a wide variety of great coffee selections both hot and cold, terrific baked goods and snacks and more, and prompt service with a smile... what more could one ask for? Well, there is... More

We stopped by for a little something to eat on a cool but sunny Sunday afternoon. We warmed ourselves up sitting at a table outside with good coffee and delicious chowder enjoying a great view right on the water. the kids got Rice Krispy treats which were huge but I thought overpriced. The food was very good and even though... More
