“Mal is really the best!”
Review of Caffe Bon-Ami

Caffe Bon-Ami
Ranked #4 of 11 Coffee & Tea in Cranston
Price range: $2 - $12
Description: A Quaint, Stylistic French Coffee House/Bistro, featuring the finest exotic Coffees sourced from around the world and Selected from 5 micro Roasters. Everything is made "IN-House" from scratch. We Proudly make all of our Muffins, scones Cakes,Pies, Biscotti etc as well as our Belgian Waffle batters, Crepe Batters, Focaccia Bread, humus as well as Roast our own Turkeys for our sandwiches and Crepes. The Atmosphere is like none-other, with NO WiFi but a Mantra of "No WiFi.....Conversation Only" this affords the Cafe the unique environment to engage in the lost humanitarian art of friendly and often times spirited debates in what we refer to as The Politically IN-Correct Cafe. Come see for yourself.....

Every time we come to Rhode Island we stop at Mal's place. Caffe Bon-Ami has not only two very friendly faces ready to serve you but also a great selections of beans and eats to go with it! This past weekend it was not different! We were again received with an awesome smile and some fresh coffee! I recommend Caffe Bon-Ami to anyone!!

Mal's chai is delicious!!!! I especially like the vanilla. Mal is a great, hard working guy who has made Caffe Bon Ami a very popular place.

These folks take their coffee VERY SERIOUSLY. You can also buy house-made balsamic vinegar by the fluid ounce.

This is a small coffee shop with the best coffee I have found anywhere ... period.

I've done extensive traveling and I've tried all the mainstream places Starbucks, Peet's and so forth. And, yes, I've tried other small local coffee shops. Trust me, the coffee you get here is so superior to anything else you've tasted you'll cringe when you have to go back to them.

Shop is owned & operated by Malcolm and his mom Susie. Most pastries are homemade by him, or family members. If you're there in the fall, get a pumpkin muffin! Has been known to serve light lunch items when time is available, though this is not always possible. Other offerings are a variety of teas, Chai, etc.

Inside seating handles maybe 20, and in the summer there is outside seating.

If you're in the area, this is definitely worth a stop.
