Each day, our chef welcomes you with a delicious breakfast and a late-afternoon reception. The seasonal menu varies daily, and features one of our renowned breakfast entreés, fresh juices and fruit, cereal, our home-made granola, our fresh baked muffins and breads, yogurt, and our renowned French-press Legendary Blend coffee, roasted daily for the Cliffside Inn.

In the afternoon, we welcome our guests back from their day exploring Newport for a relaxed wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. Our wine-tasting features an assortment of hand selected wines and a selection of hors d'oeuvres prepared daily by our chef.

Later in the evening, guests at the Cliffside Inn retire around our outdoor fireplace to enjoy conversation…and maybe a bottle of wine or our famous Cliffside s'mores with homemade marshmallows, while they reconnect with other guests; sharing their adventures and planning the next day’s activities.
