Some New Good Food

• As noted a while back, there is a new food business on Thames Street where Northwind Sports used to be next to A Jour Jewelry called Organically Good. They have finally opened (last Monday) and have gourmet sandwiches, organic salads, smoothies, condiments and yacht provisions. The sandwiches and salads are made from organic produce from Wishing Stone Farm in Little Compton. They will also be selling organic breads (whole wheat, rye and white) made by Bristol Bakery. The business was founded by best friends, Travis Dewire and Victor Melfa, both Babson College 2008 grads who studied "entrepreneurship". Open for lunch only. Telephone: 401 253 0300. They are currently offering a promotional discount: Buy one salad or sandwich and get another one half off. 

• Jennifer Cavallero at The Beehive Cafe on Franklin Street has overhauled the menu there with new chef Eli. They are open for breakfast, lunch and tea time and note that they are "not quite a restaurant, but almost one". Just listen to some of the new items on the menu and it changes frequently:
Potato Flatbread Sandwich baked in the oven with roasted vegetables, homemade tomato sauce, goats cheese and mozzarella. (I want that one!)
Roasted Mushroom Sandwich with greens, pesto, tomato and goat cheese

Indian "Butter Chicken" sandwich with greens and curried carrots

Roasted Cod Sandwich (Friday-Sunday only)

French Toast of the Day (They also just added Pancakes!)

Queen Bee Chocolate Cake, Lemon Squares, Shortbreads

Espresso drinks, organic teas, and  smoothies

Hours: 6:30 am - 6 pm weekdays; 7:30 am - 6 pm weekends
Telephone: 401 396 9994 (They also cater small functions.)

Yum. Can't wait to see his cakes in the window. Dieting puts a whole new spin on window-shopping!
