Newport, Rhode Island has so much to offer. The mansions. The breath-taking ocean views. The food. Newport offers up all kinds of diverse food options and one place that really brings all kinds of foods together in a beautiful way is The Corner Cafe.  

The Corner Cafe boasts a huge breakfast menu. From several breakfast burritos and omelets to scramblers, pancakes and French toast, the breakfast options have really put The Corner Cafe on the map with locals and tourists alike. 

I had the pleasure of discovering this restaurant for lunch. I started with a cup of rich, seafood chowder. I ordered the Cape Codder quesadilla for lunch. It was stuffed full of turkey, bacon, avocado, gorgonzola, provolone cheese and whole cranberries. It's served with salsa, sour cream and ranch sauce. This was one of the most delicious and unique meals I've had in a long time. Highly recommended! If I don't go for the Cape Codder again the next time, I may try the bacon cheeseburger burrito with ground beef, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, onion and ranch dressing. Also on the menu, a bunch of melts, salads and vegetarian options. The Corner Cafe  also serves several unique pizzas. Among them: the lighthouse pizza with clams, scallops, shrimp and pesto and the blueberry thrill with ham, caramelized onions blueberries, Swiss and smoked goada. What a restaurant!
