“Great breakfast sandwich”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

If you are in a hurry or want to sit back and relax with a nice cup of coffee the People's Cafe is perfect. It is located in an old bank. The service was quick and the prices affordable. The breakfast sandwich I ordered was delicious.

“Cute atmosphere”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Went here one day during a walk. Was extremely hot inside so ended up sitting outside at one of their little tables. Drinks were good, atmosphere looked nice inside.

“all day for a coffee”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My wife and I keep our boat in Newport for the summer season so we frequent many establishments in the area. We noticed this new coffee shop and decided to give it a try as it originally was a peoples bank ( big valt in the main area) hence the name. Staff is very nice but the service is slow to the extent that is overpowers the friendlyness of the staff and the unique set up. The food is average. For a coffee shop it takes forever to make a cappicino! Hope it gets better this was there first season.

“A decent place if you've got some time.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I met a friend here for a late breakfast on a Sunday morning. There was a sizable line, but it seemed to move fast enough. We had catching up to do, so it didn't matter to us. A limited menu for food but respectable drink menu from a coffee shop. They have a $10 minimum to use a credit card, which is slightly annoying but understandable. The coffee was very good and authentic in that they made the espresso properly with a legitimate machine by hand. The coffee was as fast as you'd expect for a good cup of joe.

The food, as others have noted, took a while. Like a long while. We didn't really care, and the egg, ham, and cheese sandwich on english muffin was actually pretty good.

The giant vault in the middle of the place definitely adds a neat touch to the place.

Like I said up top: if you've got plenty of time on your hands, not a bad place to spend it.

“UNBELIEVABLE!!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Service was HORRIBLE! Over 30 minute wait for a cold, vegetarian sandwich! When we tried to cancel our order, the waitress ARGUED with us and refused to refund the money! ONLY after pitching a fit and complaining LOUDLY did they do the right thing and give us our money back. Horrible service, I do NOT recommend this establishment to anyone....including my worst enemy!
