Newport, RI - Any great stops for gourmet food or dessert

I'm taking a weekend trip up to Newport, RI and unfortunately I haven't had a chance to do any research on those one of a kind stores I should stop at while I'm up there. I have the guide books, but would like insider advice. If anyone has any recommendations for restaurants, candy shops, or any other must eats, please let me know.

Also, we're driving up from NYC so if you have any recommendations of places along the way, that would be helpful too. Thanks!
