We were tired of Starbucks and looked for a local cafe in Newport and this one was the one. We were there to pick up morning coffee and atmosphere was great and this coffee and Hot Cocoa was great.
I'll definitely be there next time I visit Newport.

On Thames Street, People's Cafe is conveniently located right in the heart of town. This is a great place to grab a quick breakfast or an afternoon cup of coffee or tea. The atmosphere is charming, since the building was once a bank. The tall ceilings, tables set up in several smaller alcoves, and just a general sense of "old" create a cozy feel. Try their breakfast sandwiches.....delicious!

My husband and I stopped in here for breakfast and coffee two mornings in a row recently - I had egg & cheese on an everything bagel, he had bacon & egg on an everything bagel. Delicious! The bagels were fluffy and the sandwiches were piping hot. Our coffees were great, too. Loved the atmosphere with the old vault door in the center of the room.

If you're looking for a place to have a leisurely breakfast or to sit, read/chat with friends, and drink coffee, this a wonderful spot.

This is no longer called the People's Cafe. It is under new management. We stopped by in the early evening for coffee. The service was quick and the staff friendly. The inside was very cool because it used to be a bank and the huge safe is still there. Worth stopping by.

We stopped by here for a quick lunch so just had the breakfast sandwiches and coffee. The building is interesting as there is bank vault as the centrepiece.
Service was fast and the sandwiches were good. The cost was very reasonable as the two of us ate for under $10 total.
The location is central to the waterfront area.
