Custom House Coffee (Closed)
Custom House Coffee opened in East Greenwich in August, and is a sister location to Custom House Coffee in Portsmouth. The Portsmouth store was voted Best Cappuccino in 2007, '08 and '09 by Newport Life Magazine, and Best Coffee House in Newport County '08 and '09 by RI Monthly Magazine. The East Greenwich store is located centrally on Main Street, between the East Greenwich Fire Station and the old First Methodist Church. The coffee house is small but comfortable, with exposed brick and period details contributing some of the charm. All seating is at tables. The staff is warm and courteous and proud of its many varieties of special coffee blends; one particular blend they're calling "Main Street Roast," in honor of their new address. The shop carries a variety of pastries, all baked on premise, and a selection of sandwiches and salads. For the dessert-craving, Custom House Coffee offers a gelato case featuring 12 flavors. The café sports a flat-screen television mounted on one wall and offers free wi-fi. Free off-street parking is available at the rear of the building.
