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.

Great coffee/ iced tea/ breakfast sandwiches. We love our early ( well, not THAT early, it's vacation..) morning ride in the Jeep to the Merc to get our day started. Everyone is always super friendly, plenty of people working to move things along!

Homemade muffins (best on the Cape!) and cookies! Large table to sit and chat with others, breakfast sandwiches offered, and wonderful sandwiches to take with you for the beach later!

So disappointed in the Thanksgiving Pies I ordered. Had one of their Blueberry Pies last summer and THAT one was excellent, fresh berries, not too sweet, flaky crust.

I have purchased a variety of salads and sandwiches at the Mercantile through the years and had them cater a small party this summer. They delivered. Salads, small sandwiches and pastries were beautifully prepares and delicious.

We stopped by this cute little sammy shop to grab some grub. We thought there was something to appease even the pickiest eater in our group, my 6 YO son. Once he realized we were eating sandwiches, and not chicken fingers, he started to melt down. The owner's father, working the counter quickly became my hero! He joked with my... More
