Lunch in Jamestown, RI?

Headed in to Jamestown for the night Saturday. Planning on cooking dinner at the house we're staying at - but looking for a lunch spot when we come into town.
Up for anything good- just looking for some recommendations.

      I believe this place is closed - there is a new place opening or opened there - might be worth checking out.

      Village Hearth is excellent, they have only sandwiches and baked goods - but if you want a casual lunch its the best choice.

        Do you mean Tricia's Tropi Bistro closed?

          It was for sale for a while and I saw construction going on in the Spring, haven't driven past since then, but I'm pretty sure it's a different restaurant now.

      Village Hearth Bakery is definitely worth a visit. They bake everything on-site in a wood-burning oven. Small but very tasty selection of foccaccia and sandwiches. Sticky buns are outstanding, sell out early.

      Otherwise, in descending order of fanciness:

      Trattoria Simpatico - creative, well-executed Italian. Gets mobbed at dinner, usually ok at lunch. Expensive, but good.

      Jamestown Oyster Bar - seafood and semi-upscale pub food

      Chopmist Charlie's - reliable, straighforward pub food

      East Ferry Deli - good basic sandwiches, patio with great view of Newport Bridge, harbor, etc

      Ace's pizza - thick-crust, tasty, nothing fancy
