And in recent weeks, more restaurants have joined Warwick’s culinary landscape, offering additional dishes to make your taste buds sing!

Are you a coffee connoisseur who enjoys a sweet treat with your java? Café Namaste, a cozy shop located in quaint Conimicut Village, offers delicious coffees, freshly-made bagels and baked goods, sandwiches, salads, and more! The husband-and-wife team who own it take great pride in their quality ingredients and made-from-scratch offerings.

Or, check out Red White & Brew Coffeehouse, where the family-owned shop serves up more than a cup of coffee.

This collaboration adds a special touch to their shop, making it a place where creativity and community come together. 

If shopping is also definitely on the menu, head on out to the Warwick Mall and grab a bite at T’s Vault Smoothie & Juice Bar. Owned by Rhode Island residents, T’s opened with a mission of offering a variety of fresh, nutritious, made-to-order homemade juices, smoothies, bowls, (and more) that taste just as good as they make you feel. Fuel up, then shop til’ you drop!
