Hi NCECA Friends!

After talking to some local Providence coffee connoisseurs and friends I was able to put together a few more fun spots for a fine cup of cheer.  Small Point Cafe, Olga’s Cup and Saucer and Coffee Exchange are the shops that will be featured in this post.

  l     Small Point Cafe – 230 Westminster Stree

Great space for a breakfast or  a light lunch or afternoon snack, a common sandwich spots of RISD students and is a good spot for small groups. About a ten minute walk from the convention center.

  • Monday: 7am – 6:30pm
  • Tuesday-Friday: 7am — 9pm
  • Saturday: 7:30am – 9pm
  • Sunday: 8am – 9pm

Easily the best breakfast spot, great coffee, pastries and a short drive from the convention center. They have a call ahead service if you are hoping to run in and out in a small amount of time. Lunch time they are packed to the core, so definitely order ahead.

Breakfast: 7am — 11pm  Monday – Friday
Lunch:     11am — 3pm   Monday – Friday,
Ltd Lunch  11am — 2pm Saturday + Sunday
Brunch:    9am — 2pm  Saturday + Sunday

Coffee Exchange

Coffee Exchange – 207 Wickeden Street

It’s quite a long walk from the Convention Center, so find a friend to take a nice drive with and get yourself some cold brewed ice coffee. They’re known for their fair trade coffee. For all those coffee connoisseurs, it’s one of the best coffee shops I’ve been too. They have a variety of coffee beans, drinks and a great mocha.


Sunday-Saturday 6:30am — 10pm
