We stayed at the Mainstay and this was so close. Great breakfast great in a fun old fashioned diner. Decor was a bit ketchy and dusty but food was excellent and service was very good.

I got excited when I saw this was a railroad car diner. It lived up to its classic nour feel. The food was how it should be, hearty and delicious. I got the classic breakfast and it was enough for two people! I can't believe...More

I eat here just about every day I am in Newport. Bana pancakes are a meal for a big eater. Go to Bishops, you won't regret it. Get in your car and drive from Thames, totally worth it.

We chose this place for breakfast based on TA reviews. It was exactly what you would expect. Coffee cup was kept filled, lots of locals (always a good sign) and lots of choices with good prices. Great way to start the day.

This place has been around for many years and we visited after a long time away from Newport. It looks like an old diner and service was fast and friendly. It is cash only, so be prepared for that. I really like that they have...More

We just moved here and are already in love with this place and have been 3 times. It's cash only, so make sure to stop and get some cash before you come, although I did see a sign saying they had an ATM? I didn't...More
