Where To Find Brunch in Newport

brunch in newport

Brunch, the delicious combination of breakfast, lunch and alcohol consumed usually during the late morning, can now be found in many of the most popular restaurants across Newport.

Until recently it could only mostly be found on Sundays across The City By The Sea, we’re happy to report that there has been an increase of options for Brunch on Saturdays and throughout the entire week.

We’re considering Brunch a place you can get a bloody mary (or your favorite cocktail) and a combination of breakfast and lunch. Obviously, if you’re looking for breakfast without the booze, you have Gary’s Handy Lunch, Franklin Spa, The Hungry Monkey, Annie’s, Belle’s Cafe, Ocean Breeze Cafe, IHOP Middletown and many others serving breakfast daily!

Without further ado, Brunch options are served in alphabetical order…(Scroll down and take the poll – What Is The Best Place For Brunch In Newport?)
