To get your morning caffeine fix and to feel like a local, head to The Coffee House on the historic Newport bayfront. It serves one of the best breakfasts in town. The quirky, casual interior will appeal to kids, but the best show each morning is watching the many fishing vessels heading out to sea. This is a very family-friendly eatery, for both breakfast and lunch, and is an ideal spot to kick off a day along the bayfront. Their breakfast dishes range from pancakes to omelets, but the specialty here is their freshly made Cornish Pastie, which is a great meal for lunch or dinner. The biscuits and gravy are also highly recommended.
Breakfast is served from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., while the lunch menu doesn’t begin until noon.
