Stopped in for dinner and a few beers. They had a great selection of craft beers, cheerfully served by attentive bartenders. The menu is sandwich-centric, in addition to appetizers. There is also a nightly special. The appetizer I had was good.

This place was pretty busy Sunday afternoon but we were seated quickly. I was happy with my breakfast sampler, but my companion did not enjoy the goetta open faced omelet. The French toast was amazing, the biscuits were great, good coffee, good service. I would return.

I've been here a couple times. Once for breakfast, a few times for dinner and once for a mothers day brunch. Every single time the food has been fantastic. The service is always timely and friendly. The drinks (bar) a bit higher than your local hole in the wall, but the atmosphere and staff make up for that. It's worth... More

Probably Newport's most visited restaurant. Keep an eye out for Groupons for Mokka, and you won't be dissapointed. Considering we bought a $20 meal for $10 and we ate for $21 before discount. Ten bucks for a full meal is fantastic! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner - this is the place to go for a great meal. Sandwiches are LARGE and... More

I've always wanted to try this restaurant but I guess I never will. I called to see if they took reservations because I wanted to make one for an anniversary breakfast with my husband. I called and asked if they took reservations and the lady on the phone didn't even answer my question. With attitude in her voice she told... More

Party of three and we each got something different. We were all very happy with our food. My husband loved the 3 meat frittata. I got the bagel sandwich special with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, capers, red onion and avocado. It was excellent! The other person in our party ordered pancakes, eggs and sausage and was very pleased. We will... More

I'm normally not big on French toast, but their cornflake crusted French toast with creme brûlée sauce is wonderful! Nice atmosphere, we will definitely be back!

Happily surprised to discover a great breakfast place in what I thought was a bar! Our server Gail was both patient and helpful with newbies! I ordered the cornflake crusted French toast with Creme Brûlée sauce and sliced fresh bananas...oh mercy, heavenly!

great place to grab brunch with several different good options, be sure to arrive early or plan to have time on your hands as it can get quite busy on weekends during brunch time.
