Visited this cafe after a walk on 28th December with 8 family members. After ordering food which we waited nearly an hour for. We picked our drinks from the chiller. Two of the fruit drinks were out of date by two months and when this was brought to light the rest of the chiller was cleared as all drinks had... More

This is the dirtiest and most unfriendly place to eat. They have a chalkboard that has quotes on it, the staff should read them. They act as if you are bothering them when you order your food. Dirty mops in the place it's just so gross. Save your money or better yet eat at Little Falls. That place is a... More

I have been here 4 or 5 times. Staff not particularly friendly, and even when the place is empty, a sandwich or salad regularly takes 35-40 minutes to deliver to the table. Each time I think it couldn't possibly have been that bad last time--but it was. Don't make the mistake. Plenty of better places to eat within 100 yards.

Found this restaurant quite by accident one morning, while looking for somewhere to have breakfast. What an outstanding find...everything made to order and oh so fresh. I actually look forward to eating here!

Had a great lunch here! Turkey sandwich was fresh and meat was thick cut. Multigrain bread was good and the place was clean. Server was friendly. Will definitely return!

Cozy, nice looking place. Food is awful. Overeasy eggs looked dead. They were overcooked, turned into a suggy mush. The menue advertised fresh fruit. The plate included half of a strabeery on a pinch of lettuce. Sausages were so miniture, even an elf would not be satisfied. Homefries never arrived. When reminded, the server simply ignored the request. I would... More

This casual cafe in Pawtuxet Village offers a variety of baked goods, sandwiches, and salads. The food is good and it's nice to relax in this cozy cafe. The staff are friendly and helpful. The one negative is that they close early. Check their hours before heading to The Waters Edge Cafe.

I went to the Water's Edge Cafe on a Sunday morning to meet friends for Breakfast. I had never been there but one of my friends stops in for coffee on her way to work which is how she was informed of the fabulous brunch menu offered on Sundays. Parking was easy, and the Village is just lovely and charming.... More

I stumbled upon the tiny village of Pawtuxet Village (in truth, I had gotten lost!) and it was lunchtime and I was starving. Since I was solo on this outing, I opted for the friendly and inviting corner cafe called "The Waters Edge Cafe" and ordered a wrap sandwich and iced tea. I behaved and held back from buying any...
