“Went in today with my little guy and it was great!! Very family friendly, the food was AMAZING and everyone who worked there was so friendly! I would definitely recommend this place, and will possible try to visit again before I leave Newport!!!
“My wife and I went for breakfast. I got the poached eggs, hash (their own homemade,) toast and home fries. My wife got French toast, with peanut butter and bananas. It was all delicious and the service was good. We enjoyed our breakfast and would definitely recommend it!
“Awesome breakfast! Loved our spider monkeys perfectly poached eggs, and a side of pancakes that tasted almost like French crepes. Yum! Friendly staff. Fast service. Even the bus boys were smiling and helpful.
