This little shop has great sandwiches, soups, and salads. We had the ham/egg/cheese stuffed croissant. But, our favorite was the black forest ham/gruyere/dijon stuffed croissant. Their fresh baked pastries are also excellent..until they run out. Don't miss the pumpkin chocolate chip croissant with salted caramel...More

We stopped here after a tour of the Breakers... What a great find! Yummy sandwiches and delicious coffee. The only downside is the very limited seating... but a great little lunch spot in Newport. We would definitely come back.

If you are looking for scones, muffins or pastry for breakfast this is the best stop in town. This is where the quote “you snooze you lose” comes in:) If you miss breakfast the lunch sandwiches are great too!

An absolutely lovely spot for breakfast or lunch. They always have great, freshly baked pastries & deliciously brewed coffee. I tend to go with the stuffed crossiants in the AM & the pressed Cubano in the PM.

This place is tiny. Two small tables very cramped. I do not believe they take reservations. It’s more of a take out place.
