Pawtuxet Village, Rhode Island possesses a remarkable concentration of restaurants, cafes and other food destinations within just a few blocks in this quaint, charming coastal village in Cranston, R.I.

The question is, which one to choose?

From our experiences there so far, I'd say all of them but if it came down to one, it would be the Little Falls Bakery and Cafe. This cozy spot located right up front to the charming brick sidewalks in Pawtuxet Village does everything  exceptionally well: locally-made coffee with a great aroma and taste, croissants, baked scones, muffins, bagels, cinnamon rolls, made-fresh daily soups, huge sandwiches (served with a kosher pickle and chips), quiche and surprisingly, really great hand-tossed New York-style pizza.

They also serve breakfast sandwiches with fresh eggs and a choice of cheese and sausage, tomato, bacon, hummus, smoked salmon and cream cheese. Even though most of the menu centers around breakfast and lunch, Little Falls is open until 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday until 8 p.m. (for some of that excellent pizza), and Sunday until 3 p.m.

For breakfast, I love the huge, fresh chocolate chip muffin (pictured at the end of the article) and for lunch the amply-served plain chicken salad wrap and the curry chicken salad with almond slices and raisins. Service is quick and friendly, and the feeling of being in what feels like the epitome of a neighborhood bakery and cafe helps make the overall travel experience in historic
Pawtuxet Village that much better.

Like Rhode Island, the Little Falls Bakery and Cafe -- named after the little waterfall at the Pawtuxet Bridge -- is small in size but comes up big in so many ways. The living room-like vibe with a fireplace, the local conversations, and the classic coffeehouse atmosphere in tandem with the fresh food make for a great culinary foundation to a day spent in Pawtuxet Village and the rest of Rhode Island.
