Happened across this place with easy parking. Wonderful clam chowder, omelettes & sandwiches. Don't forget the large, fresh multi-flavored muffins as you walk in. Took them as a house gift & they were delicious & well appreciated. My favorite - pistachio! Had good, friendly service.

We returned here several times during our stay in Newport -- delicious breakfast with plenty of gluten-free choices (including home-baked muffins). All the egg dishes were great, and they also have decent espresso coffee drinks.
