Each day, our chef welcomes you with a delicious breakfast and a late-afternoon reception. Guests dine between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. in our grand Victorian parlor or, weather permitting, on the veranda and enjoy a multi-course breakfast celebrating freshly prepared foods and the finest ingredients. The seasonal menu at our Newport inn varies daily, and features one of our renowned breakfast entrées.
Breakfast at Cliffside Inn also includes fresh juices and fruit, cereal, our homemade granola, fresh baked muffins and breads, yogurt, and our renowned French-press Legendary Blend coffee, roasted daily and blended exclusively for us by nearby neighbor Custom House Coffee, Rhode Island’s top artisanal coffee roaster.
Afternoon tea is served on Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. in the parlor at our bed and breakfast in Newport, RI. Our tea service features a custom blended tea, prepared exclusively for the Cliffside Inn by America’s preeminent master tea blenders Harney & Sons®. Accompanying your tea is an array of sweets and savories, both classic and contemporary, prepared by our chef. During warmer months, we serve iced teas as well, while guests relax on the veranda and at our outdoor garden seating.
During the rest of the week, we welcome you back from your day exploring the best of Newport to join other guests from 5:00 to 6:00 PM for a relaxed wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. At our B&B in Newport, RI, we feature an assortment of hand selected wines and an array of hors d’ouevres prepared daily by our chef. Our wine and hors d’oeuvres reception is a wonderful way to meet other guests and unwind before heading out to enjoy one of Newport’s fine restaurants.
Later in the evening, retire around our outdoor fireplace to enjoy conversation…and maybe a bottle of wine, while you reconnect with other guests; sharing your adventures and planning your next day’s activities.
The Cliffside Inn is pleased to offer guests a selection of wines to enjoy during their stay. Our wine cellar features a selection of wines both from the Southeastern New England Wine Growing Appellation — New England’s top wine zone, as well as some of our personal choices from small production international vineyards. Order prior to your arrival or on the spur-of-the-moment. Your selection is delivered to your room.
