Small Point Café
230 Westminster St.
Providence, RI 02903
The Small Point Café serves excellent coffee, fresh simple good food, and is a great place to be.
All of the coffee is brewed by hand, using Chemex brewers. The iced coffee is cold-brewed. Espresso drinks are made on a classic Italian La Marzocco espresso machine. No push button instant lattes here! The coffee is fair trade and organic, roasted locally in West Bridgewater by Equal Exchange. The Whisper blend espresso comes from New Harvest in Pawtucket.
Small Point offers a wide selection of teas, local sodas, as well as fresh squeezed orange juice, made to order.
The robots in the bathroom were created by Adam, the Providence city skyline chalkboard wall by Anne, and the rest is a collaboration.
They don’t serve any foods at Small Point that owners Adam and Anne wouldn’t feed to their daughter. Organic and local when possible, and simple fresh and natural.
Established in 2010 Started by Anne and Adam, who designed and built out the café, the Small Point is built on principle. Serving organic, fair trade and local food and drink at affordable prices. Most materials, equipment and furnishings are recycled. All of the lighting is LED bulbs, the toilet is a water-saving dual flush model, and the café composts all food waste, coffee grounds, paper cups and napkins, used carry out containers, and corn plastic cups and straws.
Adam and Anne are artists, both with backgrounds in construction, design, and theater, behind the scenes.
They love good design, food, coffee, and community, all of which come together at Small Point.
Started by the owners, and run by all of the lovely people working behind the coffee bar, Small Point is just what an independent café should be.
