Newport, RI best eats/ drinks

Hi all,

My bf and I are heading up from NYC to Newport, RI for a few days this labor day weekend. Looking for:

** best bakeries (esp for breakfast, like croissants, scones, etc)
** best coffee
** best cocktails (any fancy pants cocktail lounges with unique creations?) -- prob not a cocktail place, perhaps best beer selection with local brews?
** most reasonable/ delicious seafood place
** best local restaurant
** best ice cream
** best clams

Would esp like places using local ingredients, local farms, local fishermen. We enjoy good, reasonable food. Non-pretentious (okay, except for pretentious cocktails bc we like a good cocktail).

Some places I've picked out from the boards I'm looking to try:
Blue Plate Diner
The Landing
Aloha Cafe
Anthony's Seafood
Flo's Clam Shack

Thanks and looking forward to the suggestions!
