Located a short walk from Narragansett town beach and the sea wall, cool beans cafe is a quaint little coffee shop with lots of delicious choices! They have everything from chai to lunch sandwiches.

Head over to the west side of Providence for an electrifying coffee experience! I love the decor and the vibe this place gives off and I especially love their iced mocha. White Electric claims they have the best coffee in Providence head out to check out if it lives up to that title!
