the only negative about this small, local eatery is the fact that there are so many terrific things on the menu that you spend more time deciding what to get than actually waiting for the preparation of your selection. (that is the longest sentence i have written in years!) we had homemade veggie lasagna, a tuna melt, fresh salads, and... More

I've been going to Meeting St Cafe for sandwiches for years and the food is always fantastic -- biggest and best sandwiches in RI! The pastrami sandwich is particularly good, as is the BLT. Also of note are the ginormous cookies! All around a great place for breakfast or lunch!

Had a delicious breakfast here, large portions you won't leave hungry. Also ordered lunch to go, which was great! Just for reference it's on street parking only.

I got the Eggs Benedict; huge portion--two pieces of toast, two poached eggs, large serving of roasted potatoes. Food was decent and price was good for the portion size. Feels like a diner, tastes like a diner.

We've been going here now for many years (yes I am dating myself!) The same owner has had this for 30 years, David. If you haven't been in lately, you need to get in there! Still great quality food as you'd expect. I still love the eggs spinach Benedict, fish and chips and the cheese steak!

This place is a winner and it shows in how popular it is. You can also order food in advance via a phone app, which I recommend doing. The food menu is extensive. I had the chicken cheesesteak with home fries which was very tasty. I love my potatoes and these home fries were amazing. There is a decent amount... More

We stopped by with friends and had a Caesar Salad, Ross' Turkey Sandwich (turkey, muenster & cranberry mayo - served hot), the Turkey BLT and the Pastrami sandwich. Everything was very good. It was a lovely day and we sat outside... More

The college guys frequent this restaurant for good food and generous portions. If we want to see our kids for breakfast - this spot is convenient - just 1 block off the main college street called Thayer St. The boys enjoy good quick orders of morning food- and they don't care about the venue style. It is clean and neat-... More
