The food is fresh and good, but be prepared to stand in line and then pick up your own food. The prices are reasonable given its location in Newport. It's a great chance to relax comfortably surrounded by a working luxury ship yard with yachts all around you. If you're looking for good food in a unique environment, this is the place. It's a little bit of an adventure.

We had lunch at Belle’s Cafe in Newport, RI. This was a nice surprise. This cafe is located on a working wharf with lots of workers and vacationers seating side by side, inside and outside. Several in our group had sandwiches, others had salads. No complaints, only satisfied eaters with compliments all around.
This cafe is located on a wharf where boats are serviced and repaired. Lots of action as we ate. Highly recommend for a casual meal.

What a find! Belle's is located in the working Newport shipyard. It is clean attractive with indoor and outdoor covered seating where you can people watch while surrounded by gorgeous yachts with a view of the sea. The food declared to be delicious by all four of us. I loved the avocado toast on sour dough bread with micro greens & fruit with 2 eggs.

Belle's proved to be the exceptional breakfast joint. Situated in an active shipyard, in the midst of numerous yachts both floating and on dry land, the surroundings are attractive.

Our morning was very busy, so you stand in line to get to place your order at the counter. After a decent wait, our crabcake benedict's were ready, to be enjoyed outdoors, on various tables or seats on the water, with a pleasant seabreeze.

What a memorable breakfast!

Hello, thank you for visiting Belle's Cafe at Newport Shipyard and thank you for your great review. We're happy you enjoyed coming to the Shipyard and enjoyed your breakfast on our patio. The Crabcake Benedict is definitely one of our more popular items, especially with our weekend crowd, and you're right, we do often have large crowds on the weekends which can make the wait time a bit longer than normal.

We do hope you will return the next time you're in Newport!

Have a great Fall,
Veronica Brown

Hidden spot...but worth the look. We had an early lunch (just missed breakfast) and the sandwiches were very good (would recommend the BLT). Great place to sit and admire the spectacular boats in the shipyard.
