An adorable hole-in-the-wall coffee shop. Strolled on the dock to the Coffee Grinder on a Monday morning while on vacation. The owner was very helpful in helping me pick out a drink to order- I ended up with something similiar to a flat white and...More

Stopped in before heading home for a nice coffee to take on the road. It's at the very end of the pier, right up against the boats and facing Newport Harbor. I got a double latte and my wife got a plain coffee. Both were...More

Excellent coffee, friendly service and a beautiful view. Shaded area was a perfect place to relax. Snacks were available and light fare is available and liked good.

We meet here for a late evening business chat. The view was fun and plenty of seating. Coffee and dessert / pastry choices were somewhat limited but that was expected given the late hour. Thrilled to find somewhere to chat at 10pm that was happy...More

Best joint in Newport if you want a REAL cup of java. We stumbled upon this by following our noses and boy we sure are glad we did. We went here everyday. We found the Mocha and the Capp delightful. Keep up the good work....More
