Our favorite Restaurants within walking distance
Julian's has been a neighborhood staple for more than two decades. Brunch is very popular so expect to wait up to an hour or more on the weekends unless you arrive early. We have other recommendations for brunch & suggest that you instead go to Julian's for dinner or weekday breakfast/lunch. Great spot for sitting outside in the warmer months. Literally right around the corner from our home.

This hole-in-the-wall joint is relatively new & we just love it! You don't go here for the health food so if that's a concern don't bother. We love the fried fish sandwich & the chicken sandwich. The waffle fries are awesome! Also a great spot for locally sourced oysters. Yum!

Local, seasonal ingredients. Everything is simply delicious. This is a favorite weekend brunch spot that gets really crowded & has a long wait. We prefer to go to Nicks during the week for breakfast or dinner.

If you go to Loie Fuller's for the decor alone you won't be disappointed. This is pushing the limits of "walking distance" so if the weather is less than favorable you may want to Uber. This is the perfect restaurant for a romantic evening or a casual evening--the food is amazing & we love that we can get dressed up or go casual, no one cares.

Great sub sandwiches (especially the Italian & meatball). The pizza is basic, greasy pizza--not awesome but does the job when you want a quick snack & don't want to travel far. Cheap by the slice. They also deliver.

Peruvian & Bolivian cuisine. Our favorite dish at Los Andes is "pollo a los Andes with cheesy rice". We split it because the portion is gigantic. The cheesy rice is crucial instead of the steak fries. A bit of a spicy kick but oh so amazing! The civiche is also the best we've ever had--anywhere. The service is great!

Where to Brunch!
This is our favorite brunch spot. We're not sure why it's not more popular & crowded. In the warmer months you definitely want to sit on the deck, which is covered, for a water side experience. $5 mimosas or bloody mary's!

Open since 1838, the Athenaeum is a library but so much more. The library is open to the public but you cannot take out any books without a membership. Their children's section is fantastic. There is so much art & history in this building---it really should be on your list of things to see in Providence.
