last weekend, we traveled to see two of our dear friends get married in newport, ri. on sunday, after all the festivities, james and i bummed around the small town walking up and down the cobblestone streets. i had never been before and when i told a friend from work, she told me there was a great coffeeshop in the area and it had something to do with a camel. she couldn’t remember the name but she told me that if it had a camel on the sign, it was the right place to be.
luckily, james and i stumbled upon it quickly, as it was only a 7 minute walk from our hotel. it’s name was not “the camel coffeshop” as i had been referring it to. but rather, mokka coffeehouse. however, it was in fact decorated by numerous camels.
mokka coffeehouse is a small business run by mr. jack corey and his wonderful staff. they use fair-trade coffee and offer delicious pastries to go alongside. their house special is called the “ice house” which is iced coffee, with your choice of a homemade syrup and cold foamed milk on top. knowing this, i ordered a coconut ice house, which to jack’s surprise was quickly on the rise for this spring season. as it should be, because it was phenomenal. even james, an “i don’t like coffee” person, said that he could easily see himself enjoying this chilled delight.
we cannot recommend this place enough! if you are in the newport and need a quick caffeine boost or just want to try something new. head on over to mokka coffeehouse – you won’e be disappointed!
