“once, and weren't impressed”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

We stopped by here for a late breakfast/early lunch after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We were disappointed. They don't serve breakfast on weekdays, we learned. We settled in for lunch, then were very much not impressed by the re-heated split pea soup that was so thick, it was the consistency of heavy mashed potatoes. When one of us mentioned it to the cook, who had asked how our food was, she just said oh well, she had stirred water into it when she reheated it. The waitress then added some hot water which we stirred in, but it just was almost solid, it was so thick. And it wasn't tasty at that point. Whatever we paid for just that cup of soup (we had sandwiches - they were meh), we paid way too much.

Cute place. Other reviewers seem to think it has good food. Perhaps our visit was an aberration, but they can't serve soup that bad and expect to have customers return.

“Four times and always good.”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

This was our fourth visit in the last 12 months. We have been here for breakfast, for lunch and just for a beer and some great baked goods. Nice people, nice place, friendly and relaxed.

“Vegan, Gluten-Free and Meat Lovers Unite!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

For the record I don't like breakfast foods... but I loved eating here. We went here based on the recommendation of other TA reviews. It was excellent - fresh, unique and catered to many different food preferences at the same time. Breads are homemade, coffee good and plentiful, portions generous. Definitely recommend.

“Seven fabulous meals in four days”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

My wife and I love this restaurant and couldn't stay away during our four-day stay in Newport. Everything is made from scratch, is creative and delicious; and the service is fun, friendly and efficient. We very much enjoyed getting to know owner/chef Judy and her assistant/waitperson Katharine.
