Tara’s Tipperary Tavern
Arguably the most unusual breakfast in southern Rhode Island can be found at Tara’s, Rhode Island’s oldest Irish pub, which is open every day of the year. Local legend has it that this place was a speakeasy in the days of Prohibition. Breakfast is served on Sundays from 8am to 1pm. This is the place for an authentic Irish breakfast ($10.95) complete with bangers and rashers. That’s sausage and bacon served with two eggs, hash, baked beans, fried tomatoes, home fries and toast. The Irish eggs benedict ($8.95) offers two poached eggs with rashers on an English muffin topped with hollandaise sauce. Wash it all down with Tara’s Irish coffee crowned with freshly made whipped cream. It only gets better this summer when you can have your breakfast on the deck with its magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean and Block Island off in the distance.
