Recommended by our tour guide, we lucked out! Delicious lobster rolls, served two to an order with cole slaw for $20. More than enough to share. Highly recommend.

I visited Belle's Café while on a food tour during the Summer. The food was sooooo amazing that I returned for breakfast the next day, and again for lunch day after that. Whether visiting Newport or local to the city, this is a hidden gem with food that does not disappoint. The clam chowder is a must try, but their... More

As a yachting destination, Newport is hard to beat. The beautiful harbour and charming town life lived up to its reputation, and my husband was in heaven. ⛵️🛥🚤 It was topped off with a beautiful breakfast at Belle's with a view of the boats that can't be beaten.

This was a great stop for lunch on our first day in Newport. We wouldn't have known about it except for the helpful suggestion by a Newport Visitor's Center employee. It's located in the middle of the busy Newport Shipyard, amidst luxurious yachts and smaller boats, and provides an interesting setting for a meal. Our sandwiches were tasty, ready quickly,... More

We found this spot on a trip to Newport a couple years ago through online reviews. When traveling, we love to find great breakfast spots that are low key and popular with locals. Belle's is a hidden gem in the Newport Shipyard, and it's too good not to share. We later hosted a casual post-wedding brunch at Belle's. Great service,... More

The food is fresh, and exquisitely tasty. But here's where I feel taken advantage of: you order at a counter and prepay, get a buzzer, pickup your own meal when buzzer goes off, then clean up your table when you finish, but they still charge an automatic 12% gratuity fee for the pleasure of eating there. It cost me almost... More

Got a bacon egg and cheese on a croissant and some pancakes here that were great. Especially because its such a short walk from the Hyatt. You can sit indoors or outside with a nice view of all the boats in the marina. Great spot for a quick breakfast.

First thing the map directions are not good. Belle's is located inside the boat yard gates. Just go past the guard towards the water! It was really cool to see all the massive sail boats on the hill having work done. So on to the food. It was good I had the lox and bagel sandwich and my husband had... More
