Located inside the Newport Shipyard on Long Wharf with parking on the street and within walking distance of many hotels. This is definitely not the usual cafe. An eclectic menu, nicely upscale, but with basics like bagels and donuts. Our group strongly recommends the avocado...More

Had a line out the door for the entire hour we were there. Crab eggs Benedict and a veggie omelet special. Both fresh and big portions. Not cheap but worth the dollars. Good coffee too.More

We were in Newport over the weekend and found this great cafe in the Shipyard. Loved the breakfast, everything was fresh and delicious. Love the atmosphere in the working shipyard and the best part is we could bring our Golden Retriever

We had breakfast here twice. The service is prompt and a great selection of breakfast options. The atmosphere of a working shipyard and sitting watching the yachts while you eat outside is wonderful.

This is off the tourist map. A local's spot. You need to know about this place and realize it is in the very back of the shipyard. Very friendly service! Open for breakfast and lunch only. Wonderful outdoor seating when the weather cooperates. The lobster...More

Recommended by our tour guide, we lucked out! Delicious lobster rolls, served two to an order with cole slaw for $20. More than enough to share. Highly recommend.

As a yachting destination, Newport is hard to beat. The beautiful harbour and charming town life lived up to its reputation, and my husband was in heaven. ⛵️🛥🚤 It was topped off with a beautiful breakfast at Belle's with a view of the boats that...More
