Went to Newport the day after labor day. Drove right from Ct to breakfast here. Great coffee and yummy breakfast sandwich. Best breakfast potatoes I have seen in a long time and very good. The crowds were gone because of the storm so it was pleasant parking on the street and inside the restaurant. They gave fresh bagels and tasty... More

We stopped here to get some drinks and a light snack to stroll with. The menu and omelets looked very inviting though. We ordered an iced mocha, iced cappuccino and the macaroons and have no complaints. The service at the takeout counter was efficient and friendly. The coffee was much better than Dunkin Donuts would be.

Lets start by saying the food at this café was excellent but, the service was like nothing I've ever experienced before. All both my friend and I wanted was get something to grab and go however, that didn't go as planned. My friend went to order her omelet first and I could see the cashier/server was having some difficulty with... More

Freshly and locally roasted coffee with deep flavor and tip top crema. The staff is friendly and care about each cup of coffee. The pastries are fresh homemade. The tables are clean and good internet connection. Skip the big chain coffee shop and go straight here.

Called in on spec and had a tasty lunch. The food is not remarkable - I ate a tuna salad followed by carrot cake - but the ambience enhanced the experience. The place is clearly popular with locals - there were groups of pensioner regulars as well as business people there giving it a buzz. The waitress was friendly. Cafe... More

The hostess was so friendly and "encouraging" to have one of their bakes specialties (a fruit turnover). I gave in and my only regret was that I didn't buy more than one! Delicious! Did I say it was "delicious?" I would have gone back for another one as well as some of the other items offered, but I had to... More

My girlfriend and I stopped here (at least I think this is the place. It's now called Washington Square Cafe?) while we were walking our dogs. They have outside seating and a dog dish ready - so we sat down outside in the nice sun. We ordered 2 iced coffee's, an english muffin with some peanut butter and banana, and... More

Tried to find Jonathan's Ocean Coffee this morning - it has apparently changed hands. The coffee was nothing special, in fact it was not very good at all. We did not try the food, but if coffee is in the name, I would expect that to be a major focus.

Thank Dan H
