Yes, we took Newport by storm last weekend along with thousands of others seeking to squeeze in one last weekend away before summer ends. Our very first stop in town was The Newport Sweet Shoppe.
Their handmade chocolates, cookies and cupcakes are legendary ... and delicious, always fresh and one of our top New England favorites.
We snagged several chocolate cupcakes, some cookies dipped in chocolate and, of course, the Milk Chocolate Cashew Turtles which are always extraordinary.
Next time you're in Newport stop by on this little side street just off Bellevue Avenue for some nice, sweet surprises and some cool party ideas.
