The bakery is average.

After raves from a family member, we stopped in for some bakery treats. The chocolate chip muffins were ok, even a little dry. The cinnamon bomb muffin was good, but not great. They are famous for their meltaways, which are a light, airy, sweet and buttery pastry. It was good but I thought it would... read more

We had breakfast here this morning and I thought it was quite good. We eat here every year when we come and we have never had a problem. The same staff has been here for years and our waitress was great. The meltaways are awesome and they make a nice omelette. We will definitely come back.

Unfortunately the service was not the greatest, the food was average, and the hostess/maybe owner was not friendly - she complained about it being too busy and look frazzled which is not very service oriented

That may sound worse that it is. I can't say that they don't pass on all the tips they collect but I was SHOCKED when a modest tip was include in the check for our party of 6. I don't think it is ever OK to force a tip but there is some small excuse when the group is large... More

Bonatt's is a local business and we have been going there for quite sometime. The food is great and the people are friendly.

Have been coming here since I was a kid and 10 something years later the prices have skyrocketed and the meltaways have become blander than ever. So disappointed in my last trip to Harwichport and this restaurant. Would probably never go back unfortunately.

Bonatt's used to be a 5 start place, but I was so disappointed to see that they have stopped making the fruit meltaway. I grew up with this place, and the fruit meltaways were amazing and totally worth an early morning trip! I was told that this is the more "authentic" recipe. Authentic or not, the plain are lackluster and... More

Here's the thing about Bonatt's - when they are good they are stupendously good and when they aren't they miss the mark by a mile. Things that are consistently great - 1) The food. The meltaways are their trademark item and rightfully so. They are amazing. These folks can also make a mean omelet. Who doesn't love fantastic food at... More

Melt always and dirt bombs are part of our daily vacation ritual. Located in the heart of Harwichport, Bonatt's is a do-not-miss when visiting.

I've been coming to Bonatts for more than 20 years, and this bakery is needless to say famous for their meltaways.If you're in the area and haven't been here yet, you'll be missing out on one of the most delicious pastries that exists! Aside from the meltaways they have other great pastry items, delicious local organiccoffee, and indoor and outdoor... More
