I love Rosemary and Thyme! The owners just renovated the space and added a few more tables, but I usually take my food to go. All the pastries, cookies, muffins and so delicious you can taste the love (as well as real butter). The breakfast croissants are so good and super filling. It's definitely a calorie splurge, but so worth... More

My friend raved about this little café so we went for lunch. I had the Smoked Salmon Tartine. Holy smokes this was delicious!! I don't know what is wrong with the reviewer who did not like this sandwich but I'm glad he will not be back, more for me! The flavors melted together and it was so very good. The... More

Stopped in for a quick coffee and left with a full, happy stomach. Ended up getting a 'European' sandwich and it was the best sandwich I've ever had. The chocolate croissants have a layer of Nutella in them and they are so good it's almost addicting. Will definitely be back, I highly recommend stopping in for lunch!

Rosemary & Thyme is hands down the best place I have ever visited. Looks are deceiving, but in the best way possible. My boyfriend and I were immediately greeted with a smile and cheerful, "Good morning!" I told her we had never been here before and she immediately began explaining how things worked. They serve stuffed croissants and fresh pastries... More

Rosemary an Thyme is a fantastic establishment, with great food and a wonderful staff. Matt and Anne wake up in the wee hours of the morning to prepare fabulous pastries (pain au chocolate, muffins, croissants, & etc), and even better stuffed croissants which are usually gone by 9:00 a.m. Lunch is just as good, with a menu that changes over...

The first day we discover that they closed at 2 o'clock, I guess shame on us for not reading their operating hours but that is a pretty early time to close. Second day we show up at 1:30 and there is a sign outside that they are sold out of lunch for the day.

With the many positive reviews posted for the Rosemary and Thyme Cafe, we felt we had to give it a try for lunch when in Newport last week. Our food was average at best, and the experience was below average. They only have four tables crammed into a small space. You can see into the kitchen from the table where... More
