I’m talking about West’s Bakery in the village of Hope Valley in the town of Hopkington in the county of Washington in the state of Rhode Island, which is a confusing place when it comes to place names. (click here to read my honest-reviews policy).
West’s Bakery is where we recently had one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever enjoyed, at such a reasonable price, that we’re glad they aren’t right next door to us. We’d be tempted to stop by every day for one of their scrumptiously ethereal Bismark pastries, with eggs Benedict on the side–and we’d get fat!
Although it is fairly likely that taking a trip to eat at West’s is going to become a once-a-month indulgence for us. It’s our kind of place:
- cozy-friendly atmosphere,
- yummy food,
- low prices,
- owners and staff who all obviously care about giving customers a top-notch food experience,
- in a scenic locale.
The family-owned bakery/restaurant first opened in the 1950’s, and is conveniently located in Hope Valley on Route 3, just off of I95 between exits 2 and 3. (Open Thursdays through Sundays 6:00am to 3:00pm; closed Mon. Tue. & Wed.) It’s the perfect place to stop for breakfast or lunch when traveling between Connecticut and Providence, Boston, or Cape Cod.
