From the outside, you would never guess that they make such good food! It's a very "hole-in-the-wall" location with very limited seating inside. But the FOOD is soooo good. I stopped by randomly looking for a place with cheap sandwiches, and was so happy I chose here. I ordered a "European" - ham, smoked turkey, greens, and mayo on grilled... More

Any time you can get in the door means the rest of the day will be spent smiling . Everything is good, just follow your taste.

Wonderful café with equally wonderful food. From the owner to the cook to the server and everything inbetween you would be well served to stop in for a quick breakfast or call ahead for your lunch order. The Cuban sandwhich is the best by far.

What a bummer! I went over today for lunch and remembered you are closed for January! There is no other eggplant that compares...guess I'll have to suffer. I can't wait for 3/1. Enjoy your break.

It was a little late for lunch, we and the 3 kids were starved. Each child belted out a fast food chain in which they wanted to eat. I trusted Trip Advisor and over rode their wants. Each kid ages 12 to 15 ordered something different, as did my wife and I. Not a peep out of them the whole... More

We stopped here for breakfast based on all the other excellent reviews and have to agree this place is great. They were only open until 11 on the day we stopped because they were getting ready to go on vacation. I'm glad we got there when we did. The only hot option for breakfast that day was stuffed croissants, i... More

I visited Rosemary and Thyme while in Newport on November 10. As the Number 1 lunch spot on TripAdvisor, I was looking forward to it. I had been there a year ago and had the grilled cheese, which was gooey and delicious. This time, I tried the TBLT, a turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on crusty bread. I ordered... More

Stopped by for a coffee. Small, quaint place, parking in front. Iced coffee for less than $2. Just as good as the high end coffee shops.

We found this "off the beaten path" small family run restaurant while visiting Newport, R.I. The restaurant is a very small bistro that serves breakfast and lunch. We arrived too late for breakfast; however, we enjoyed a wonderful cranberry-lemon scone while we waiting until 11:00 to order lunch. The lunch was amazing! I ordered a sandwich which was translated from... More

We stopped in for breakfast, this is small bakery, only a couple tables, very quaint. You won't get fried eggs and omelets here, it's strictly a bakery. Having said that, we had breakfast croissants stuffed with scrambled egg, cheese and bacon. They were wonderful. They also offered two other versions but had already sold out of the veggie croissant. There... More
