I staple of each of my trips to Rhode Island. Fresh, delicious, creative, local sanctuary for those in the know. The staff is super friendly and I always feel welcome. This is the home of the best corned beef hash I've ever had. Seriously. I'd sell my husband for it. (Not much of a deal). But seriously, I Love this... More

Blows everyone out of the water! Fresh, friendly, delicious, this little joint is a love affair for those that love simple, creative food w no fuss. The corned beef hash- makes me tear up, the pancakes- better than mom's! Do yourself a favor and visit. It did agent crowded, so be aware of "rush hours".

After a long trip, we were looking for a breakfast place and JP Spoonem's came up on the GPS. This is a little corner store front but has great attitude inside. The service was outstanding. The menu claimed they have the best corned beef hash and eggs in RI. This is often an idle boast, but not this time. The... More

Just a small little place we found near Johnson and Wales university, but what a great find. We had lunch even though most of the reviews we read were about breakfast. They have what they call grilled wraps which are a cross between a wrap and a quesadillas and are awesome. Portions are large. Staff is super and very pleasant... More

Very, very friendly wait staff, I would go back just to have the same waitress. Ordered the hash, eggs, and home fries. The eggs were cooked perfectly, and the corned beef hash is the best I have ever had. The toast was excellent. Next time I am driving through I will definitely stop again. Only a few minutes off 95.

This place has such a large selection it is amazing that they do it so well, but they do. They have all of the typical breakfast foods, along with several omelets, but they also have several great hashes and Benedicts. , there are only 7-8 tables, and several stool seats, so plan to wait, but it worth a trip.

Corned beef hash was amazing, best I've ever had! The scrambled egg whites had flavor and were not the usual bland fare. Be sure to order at least one pancake! Since it was my first visit, I ordered what I customarily have for breakfast to have a good point of comparison. This place now sets the watermark! It is small... More

This little breakfast place in Cranston has it all, great food, service and food. The breakfast specials are absolutely wonderful and can't be found elsewhere, the quality and taste are outstanding. We went during the week and had to wait a few minutes for a table, give it a try for breakfast or lunch you won't be sorry.
