You jump with joy that there's a place so convenient just before the ramp to 138, but too bad if you don't wait for something better. The egg sandwich is a 'frittata' (think of a spongy square made long ago and nuked) with ham, bacon(think uncooked and tasteless), or sausage on a variety of breads. The muffin was fresh, but...

The sign out front reads kelle's Cafe. I stopped in because I drove by it several times while I was in Newport for a conference. It's located just off the highway and close proximity to 138 West. I stopped in because I wanted a cup of coffee and a muffin or bagel before my long drive back to NJ. Perfect... More

I work near here and have had lunch here many a time and it never disappoints. Besides a very good lunch they also do breakfast sandwiches well. Get the tuna salad sandwich and also try their specials. The specials are usually very good. Parking can be tough, so be prepared.

Kelle's "A little Cafe" has been a go-to for breakfast and/or lunch for many years now. Our latest visit to Newport would not have been complete without another visit. The fresh bagels and pastries are favorites of our grandchildren and the breakfast sandwiches are always enjoyed by our kids. We always look forward to Kelle's home made soups and her... More

Excellent pastry and good coffee. Would like to come back for sandwiches. A little out of town but easy to find. Small but comfy dining area.

We stumbled upon Kellie's "A Little Cafe" trying to find a place for a quick, but good, breakfast on our way out for a day at the Cape. We found this place on yelp, and since it was on our way (near the bridge) we decided to give it a try. SO happy we did! This is not a full... More

I stopped with my grandson who didn't see anything on the menu he wanted, so Kelle, the owner, offered to make him a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich, which he loved. Both our meals were excellent, and the service was great. It's a small place that we came upon while driving around and decided to stop. We were glad we... More

We stumbled upon A Little Cafe (Kellie's Kitchen) last year on our vacation to Newport, RI and were not disappointed when we returned this spring. This small, unassuming eatery just as you enter Newport at the foot of the Bridge exit, offers daily specials that are prepared by the owner Kellie that are outstanding and reasonably priced. Many locals are... More
