Little Falls is a popular stop for many of us. Winter time there is a fire in the fireplace, and in good weather we spill out onto the sidewalk in the outdoor furniture. Jeff knows everyone's name and has a bit of humor or story telling for everyone. Coffee is very good, low carb bagels are addictive, and if you are there at lunch time, I think their thin crust pizza is the best. I try to get down to the cafe to hang out at least 2 or 3 times a week. Catch up on all the local news.
I never had pizza at Jeff's cafe but I can recommend the coffee (oh, that espresso!) and delicious pastry that comes in great selection. It's a small but cozy place with a few tables outside, always full of people.The atmosphere was that of a local pub, although it's not really a pub!
Jeff's cafe is also the local 'gallery'. Various local artists and photographers take turns to display their works, which is a great idea. It felt good to see something was going on in the small village of Pawtuxet. That's also where Janet displayed her wonderful selection of the pictures she took during her last visit to Poland.
I really loved stopping at Eli's cafe for coffee, cappuccino or one of his delicious salads for lunch. It's a great place with different style tables and chairs, so you pick one that suits your mood. Janet and I usually sat by the huge window to watch the life go by in Broad Street. And you can't be bored at Eli's cafe when you're waiting for your fresh salad to be fixed. Eli's always willing to chat, and then the cafe displays some art & pottery exibits that you can buy. So the cafe is both friendly and somewhat intriguing.
And there's one more thing: Eli sells a variety of breads and bakery - the best I ever had during my 3 weeks' stay in the US! His wholegrain bread tasted just like some of the Polish best! Eli was over the moon when I told him that, apparently a couple of Poles who live in the area come over to buy his bread regularly. I tell you, this is the ultimate proof of the bread's quality and taste, haha!!!
This little cafe in Pawtuxet Village is a short walk from my home. The name of it is Water's Edge, but regular customer's call it "Eli's" because we feel so familiar with the man who owns the cafe. Many people stop for coffee, cappacchino, a salad lunch, or some wonderful hearth baked bread from Seven Stars Bakery. The cafe also sells some antiques and collectibles, so you can shop at the same time. It's very friendly, clean and comfortable.
