Fodor's Review

What might pass as a no-frills luncheonette from the street is actually a trendy West End restaurant with some of the best breakfast food in Rhode Island, plus extraordinary lunches and dinners. Young chef Derek Wagner delights morning patrons with vanilla-battered French toast with warm fruit compote; later in the day, he prepares a knockout pulled-pork sandwich with cheddar and caramelized onion. Foodies will appreciate Wagner's passionate embrace of the farm-to-table movement, not to mention his attention to detail—his outstanding homemade mustard may occupy a small place on the charcuterie plate but it speaks volumes. Ask for a seat at the polished wood counter for a front-row view of the well-choreographed show in the open kitchen, and try the chocolate-bacon bread pudding for dessert.
