A small place nestled within the Lemon Tree Shops behind the Cook Shop. The food is fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Excellent place for breakfast and lunch. Lot's of quaint memorabilia. Food was fast and filling. Also, check out the wares in Lemon Tree Pottery.

A recent browsing shopping day brought us to the Cafe Alfresco. Counter service to order and the waitstaff brought our order to our table. We were pleasantly surprised when our sandwiches were delivered - artfully place on our plates and quite tasty - using fresh ingredients and delicious bread. Everything was wonderful and prices were quite reasonable, too. Worth the... More

I am so glad i found this place! Everything I've tried has been phenomenal. The breakfast sandwiches are the best I've ever had and I'm addicted to the Italian sodas. Will definitely have to try lunch one day.

Stopped here while traveling along the Old Kings Highway in Cape Cod. A lovely drive through small Cape Cod towns that gave you the feel of the old days. It's a small place where you place your order at the counter. The cafe had a lot of character and fun memorabilia on the walls. The cafe and the staff had... More

In a small, unpretentious mini mall on Route 6A in Brewster, titled "Lemon Tree Pottery " is a small, unpretentious eatery named "Café Alfresco". If it weren't for the fact that it is pretty much the only source of food in the area probably we would not have found it.. But what a delightful surprise! They make sandwiches there which... More

Cafe Alfresco is the perfect place for an fine lunch in an unpretentious, casual cafe setting. Their muffaletta sandwich is a real winner -- in my opinion, better by far than the muffalettas I have personally eaten at both of the New Orleans Italian delis which each claim to have invented the muffaletta (!), and at many other muffaletta-wannabe sandwich...

Maybe it was the ciabatta or the cheese but the breakfast sandwich was really good. The coffee and service were excellent as well. The guy with the tattooed arms behind the register was very nice to us. Very reasonable prices.

Pricey, but popular - quite a nice selection of dishes, everything from breakfast to late lunch. Quite a lot of tables, but limited parking.

Local restaurant. Food is always good. Love the squash blossom sandwich. Outside eating in good weather. Lobster bisque is wonderful. Love everything on the menu. Located in a nice shopping center.
