“Great Breakfast and Homemade Ice Cream”
Review of St. Clare's Annex

St. Clare's Annex
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Watch Hill
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American

Restaurant details
Good for: Child-friendly, Kids
Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, Breakfast, Outdoor Seating, Seating, Takeout
Description: Classis sandwich shop that's been a mainstay in Watch Hill for generations. The lobster roll is crammed with fresh lobster and the RI calm chowder is the best in southern New England. The real draw however is their ice cream which is made every day right on the premises. Peach ice cream made with fresh peachs, coffee oreo cookie and chocolate peanut butter cup are just some of the choices which change regularly. It is not to be missed!!

“Great Breakfast and Homemade Ice Cream”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Excellent omlets and pancakes! You may need to wait a bit since it seems to be the only sit down full breakfast restaurant in town. Still worth the wait!

“Clam Chowder”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We stopped in for a quick bite on an overcast day. I ordered the clam chowder and my wife ordered a BLT. The chowder was good; plenty of clams and potatoes. The BLT was just as good with crisp bacon and lettuce.

“Fantastic ice cream”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

I have been going to Watch Hill for more years then I want to admit. My family used to have a home there and we spent summers there. I would go to St. Clare's 3 times a week just for ice cream. I went back this summer and had ice cream again and it was delicious. My flavor of choice is always chocolate. My wife had a great pistachio. All the flavors are home made and you won't be disappointed. They make some excellent shakes too. I have had their hot dogs and pop corn also which are very good.

“New England Charm”
Reviewed 30 September 2012 via mobile

Next door to the famous carousel in Watch Hill is the St. Clare Annex. If you are looking for delicious home made ice cream and a old fashioned orangeade, then put this spot on your itinerary. The no frills food is good too.

“Best Ice Cream ever!”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

This is one of my most favorite spots anywhere! They have the best ice cream and many flavors- all super creamy and really tasty! Their lobster rolls are delicious as well, and all my friends love to have breakfast there- If you come to Watch Hill, you must stop here and at least have an ice cream. Also they make delicious Orangeades, Lemonades, milkshakes and sundaes.
