Looking for that place for tea and coffee and a good snack in Newport, RI; or anywhere in Rhode Island for that matter? Look no further. Empire Tea and Coffee is the place to be.
This was my first time going there and I was floored. The line was stretching out the door. I knew it must have had to be good if the line was that long.
I got myself a bubble tea, Mango flavored perfection, and followed it up with the freshest avocado toast that I think that I have ever tasted in my life. It was topped with red onions. An open faced sandwich to say the least that changed my entire outlook on life. The toast was crisp and not soggy, and the avocado was so fresh. The sandwich was covered with red pepper flakes for some extra texture, flavor and crunch. And the staff was efficient.
If you ever find yourself in downtown Newport, I recommend this place without a doubt.
