This place is always busy for a reason- it's good, inexpensive, fast and friendly. The menu is not wildly extensive, but they stick with the basics very well. This is a local place, right on Thames Street and if you want a good big breakfast (prime rib and eggs, before you set sail?) or hearty sandwich this is the place. It's usually very crowded, but the service is so fast your head will spin, so there never is much of a wait. This is not an over priced touristy coffee shop- this is local Newport at its best!
Pros: Food, Service, Location
Cons: Limited menu, Parking
