Just spent 24 hours in Providence and would highly recommend the oft-praised in these parts:
HAVEN BROTHERS DINER. A truck downtown each evening for their excellent cheeseburgers with everything.
IGGY’S DOUGHBOYS on the water in Warwick for the scenery, the cool snail salad and fried "doughboys" with lots of sugar on top.
And if you’re heading south…ALLIE’S DONUTS, Route 2 in North Kingstown makes a frosted maple that will have your head spinning! Friendly service too, Roadfood of the First Rank![:D]
