The Perfect Girls Day in Westerly
It might be a bit chilly outside, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had in Westerly, so grab your best girlfriends and make plans for an entire Girls Day downtown! To help you maximize your fun and minimize your stress, we’ve put together a suggested itinerary for you!
Start the day off right at Mia’s for breakfast – or brunch, if you want to sleep in a bit! Located right on the bridge from Westerly to Pawcatuck, Mia’s serves breakfast all day and lunch starting at 11 a.m. and always has delightful options for everyone, from classic staples like omelets and French toast to specials like their “Sin”-amon Roll (which is a bacon-stuffed cinnamon roll), and of course mimosas and bloodies for anyone who wishes to imbibe. For the healthy eaters in your group, fret not – Mia’s also offers a variety of healthy alternatives, smaller plates, and lighter fare.
If you want to take on the rest of your day in true style, your next stop should be Bella Vita, located right down the road on High Street. Bella Vita is a beauty salon that offers a variety of services, from hair cuts and colors to manis/pedis, skin care, and facials, waxing, spray tans, and even massages. Make sure to book in advance to be sure that you and the girls can all enjoy your salon time together.
Savoy Bookshop & Cafe
Wander down the street to check out the Savoy Bookshop & Cafe! You can grab a tasty drink and treat to enjoy as you browse the curated bookstore. It’s the best of everything: a bookstore and cafe selling adult and children’s books, toys, cards, journals, and gifts. The bookstore features two floors of retail space and a café serving locally sourced coffee, tea, kombucha, and pastries. Be sure to check out the section of staff picks!
Zoe & Co
Keep heading down High Street and around the corner to Zoe’s Lingerie if you want to spice things up a little next. Zoe’s is a staple in downtown Westerly for its plethora of gorgeous lingerie and hosiery. As the Sweet Potato Queens’ Book of Love advises: “Always wear pretty underwear, on account of you just never know.”
If the day and night have you feeling thirsty, stroll on down to Malted Barley for one of the best beer and cider selections in the state. With three floors of seating, plus an outdoor patio that’s open during the warmer months, there’s plenty of space for you and your girlfriends to have a night out. Also, they’ve got foosball and some other fun games to keep you entertained!
Perks and Corks Just a few steps away is Perks and Corks! End the night on a delicious note with a few fancy cocktails at this local favorite! We’d recommend the espresso martini for sure. And if you’re hungry, order one of their tasty grilled cheese paninis! The cozy couches and nooks are perfect for girl talk!
