Last weekend we visited West Shore Coffee Bar and got our first taste of summer in 2021! Although they are called a coffee bar, they have a bit of everything. They serve craft beers, acai Bowls, less healthy meals, and even CBD oil alongside their delicious coffees. The staff was super friendly, and the food was delicious. I ended trying a cider while Isaac had a beer, and everything was great!
About West Shore Coffee Bar
The Coffee Bar has been open for just under two years, and it is the perfect spot for a refreshing acai bowl! RI Monthly did a piece of the bar; I borrowed their photo and quote:
“Coffee is an art. If you want a strong coffee, but you’re looking for something basic, we’ll pour you a nice espresso or a latte,” says owner, Dan Saffer, a New York City transplant. “You want something intricate, and we get into the things like our coffee milk latte. We also look out for the kids as well, with things like our unicorn shake. We try to cater to everybody.”RI Monthly
In addition to serving great drinks, alcoholic and caffeinated alike, West Shore Coffee Bar sells CBD products:
“CBD or Cannabidiol – without getting too technical – is the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and it’s 100 percent legal. Though the research is still in its infancy and there’s lots of controversy surrounding the topic, some users swear it can alleviate pain, nausea and anxiety, and ease symptoms of depression, ADHD, ALS, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease and others. It is tasteless in each drink and costs $2 to add in.”RI Monthly
I loved visiting the Coffee Bar and can’t wait to come back, especially when it’s warmer. They have a great vibe and beach-themed decor. The friendly staff will make you feel like you are on vacation, even if you are stopping in during a work break.
