Hands down the BEST lunch spot in Newport. Home cooked specials of the day, including all their wonderful sandwiches and sides. Grape Salad, Chicken Salad are my FAVES. Great desserts and ready made items in the cooler for a quick week night meal.

Great place to eat. The soups are fabulous along with the cornbread. The take home meals are fabulous. Also don't leave before you get the grape salad.
