The homemade from scratch pies offered at The Mercantile are second to none and definitely worth the price. Order ahead for a wonderful family dessert after dinner.

Home baked breads and interesting sandwich combos. I love the Turkey, Havarti, with thinly sliced granny apple & mayo on the homemade oatmeal bread, mmmmmm! Eat here inside or out, or take it for the beach. Lots of other goodies too, salads, cheese, cookies and more. A little hard to find, but once you do. . .you will be back... More

This is a terrific, local, no nonsense spot to have a coffee and pastry for breakfast while they are making you a sandwich to take to the beach. It is a foodies' delight with home made bread and goodies as well as an entire wall of sandwich offerings. Everyday they also have specials that you can eat there for lunch... More

Hidden behind the Dennis Post Office is the best little local dining experience ever! Homemade entrees, huge sandwiches, and delish dessert goodies will sate your every hunger.
