Newport has a number of fine dining establishments, but the Courthouse Cafe has a special place in my heart. It is a good old fashioned diner, with fine basic breakfasts. I had the pigs in a blanket on my last trip there, the first time that I have enjoyed that particular toothsome dish. Sausages wrapped in pancakes.
The Courthouse Cafe doesn't take plastic, but it does take personal checks, which I greatly appreciate.
