Welcome to the Coffee Grinder


On the very end of Bannister’s Wharf, overlooking historic Newport harbor, you’ll find the Coffee Grinder, a charming espresso bar and coffee shop. Come by for breakfast or lunch. Stop by after a long day of sightseeing for your afternoon coffee, tea or our famous frozen drinks. Sit on the Wharf’s benches or Adirondack chairs and enjoy the sunset as you watch sailboats glide by. Or stop by for dessert after a night on the town. Authentic Italian espresso drinks are prepared here the proper way. Also served are a variety of light food items, including fresh bagels, muffins and pastries, as well as sandwiches and chowder.

The Coffee Grinder offers quality food, cheerful service, and one of the nicest settings available anywhere. This is a must stop for any visit to Newport.


The Coffee Grinder serves authentic Italian espresso, which is hand brewed using a la Cimbali traditional espresso machine.  Our House Blend is crafted by a fair trade certified small batch roaster located in Central Massachusetts.
