“Popovers Worth Getting Up Early”
Review of St. Clare's Annex

St. Clare's Annex
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Watch Hill
Cuisines: American
Description: Classis sandwich shop that's been a mainstay in Watch Hill for generations. The lobster roll is crammed with fresh lobster and the RI calm chowder is the best in southern New England. The real draw however is their ice cream which is made every day right on the premises. Peach ice cream made with fresh peachs, coffee oreo cookie and chocolate peanut butter cup are just some of the choices which change regularly. It is not to be missed!!

I'm not an early bird but when we're staying in the Watch Hill area we plan to be at St. Clare's Annex early on Sundays for the popovers. If you're not there before 10 AM you won't have popovers. They sell out early. Along with butter and the raspberry jam it is a delightful breakfast. As good as the popovers at the Jordan Pond restaurant up in Maine. Of course the fresh squeezed orange juice is wonderful too.

This is a must visit place every summer. The grand kids love the ice cream and it's a bonus that they also get to ride the carousel.

A friendly family place, St. Clair's is a Watch Hill institution. The food is straight diner fare, the menu is limited - don't expect posh. But the ice cream is fantastic, especially tasty after a day at the beach or a spin on the carousel. The piece de resistance, however, is the POPOVERS - available only on weekends and in limited numbers. Best on EARTH. No question about it. Gotta get there early to get them, though - they run out.
