I had a veggie egg white omelet, my partner had spinach florentine and both were great. The coffee was good the service was efficient and kind. Quaint location with the local diner feel to it.

Simply put, Franklin Spa was reasonably priced, had delicious food, and friendly waitstaff. Get there before 9am for an easy seat--I noticed a growing line waiting to get in after that.

The bartender at the Viking hotel recommended this hotel. He said they had the best pancakes in town. The cakes did not disappoint! This was the last place that we ate in Newport.. Oh, they take cash only so bring some cash in advance!

We stopped in for breakfast after a race. The service was good, and food was served quickly. Prices were reasonable and I would definitely go back when I am in town again. The cinnamon maple French toast was yummy.
