Love this place

The Mercantile has a vibe all its own, and is extremely popular with the locals, some of whom seem to spend entire mornings there. The sandwiches are excellent, but check out the creative side dishes offered, I wanted to buy a pound of each. It's a very comfortable place to visit, and we always get... read more

Sandwich was mediocre (had boursin rouge...okay but lacked seasoning and flavor), ambiance was so-so. Would have rather spent $1.50 more and had a pickle and chips than spend more just for the pickle. Be sure to ask! Restroom was less than clean, really?! Dirt around the baseboards and in the filters. They need an overall clean up. Felt it was... More

What a find. Tucked away off 6a in Dennis. The coffee and food is great. Not really a restaurant, but more than a coffee shop. You can even have a small cup of good coffee instead of a gallon! Free wifi, and stay as long as you want.. Long queues at the weekend, mostly locals. Psst.... Don't tell anybody

Lots of sandwich options with very fresh meat and bread. Fast stop if you are going to the theater next door. Fun place to grab a quick bite to eat.

At the recommendation of locals, we tried The Mercantile for sandwiches and coffee. You won't go wrong with the sandwiches here. The Ploughman was my favorite (if you like chicken salad). The baked goods looked tasty too. We will be back when we are in Dennis.

Stopped at The Mercantile for a late lunch. Food was really delicious and very fresh. Liked the upstairs seating area a lot. Was too full to try the desserts, but they looked really good. When you go, keep in mind there's parking behind the building too.

Great selections of sandwiches and very fresh! Friendly staff and a lot of locals especially during the morning hours for coffee and breakfast. A funky place to meet with friends.

We've been going to the Dennis Mercantile for over a decade and haven't been disappointed yet. The staff is friendly and the food delicious. If you go on a summer weekend, be prepared to wait in line. Better yet, phone in your order. Enjoy!

The Mercantile hit just the right spot for our quick, late lunch after an opera broadcast at the Cape Theater nearby. Each of us had a version of their chicken salad sandwich, loaded with a mayonnaisy chicken salad, with apple, cheese and more....all WONDERFUL (though the bread wasn't quite up to the same elevated standard). The young women who served... More
