Great sweets and coffee

We went there for afternoon coffee and enjoyed the atmosphere, drink and cakes. Yes, the queue was longish, but people were friendly and isn't it the sign of great food and service if everyone is crowding to get in! We took our coffee outside and drunk it at the nearby picnic table.

The last two times I tried to go here for breakfast, the line was out the door. I ended up getting donuts to go. Lots of families and lots of kids. The place is pretty small so you will likely be sitting near a table with kids. Some are better behaved than others. Last time I actually ate there was... More

A classic. They open earlier than most, so as a yearly vacationer can get to Nauset for sunrise with decent tea or coffee. Breakfast sandwiches are loaded .

This was recommended to use for breakfast. We did not like the hour wait on a Thursday but the food was good.

Great first visit. Full but room at counter for the two of us. Turned out to be for the best. Wonderful friendly patrons. Highly recommend the Mulligan. And wife had the parfait which caused discussion by our counter mates but proven delicious!

Darling small café with great prices, delish breakfast and yummy bakery treats. Looks small from the road but don't let that fool you.

Don't ever change!!! We have been eating here for 20+ years. When we are back home, we dream about getting to the Cape and making our first stop at Hole in One!! AHHHH-the donuts, the simple seating, the counter, and the wonderful friendly staff, all make for this quintessential Orleans vacation.

This Hole in One is larger than the one in Eastham. Great old fashioned style doughnuts plus a breakfast menu. Large parking lot or can ride your bike here from the Rail for Trail path.

This is a landmark in Orleans with a well earned reputation! Their breakfasts are delicious, but I am partial to their pastries! Try the apple fritter or the lemon donuts! Opens early to cater to fishermen and folks on their way to work. Go early; expect a line but the service is good and things move fast!

Everything is made on premises fresh daily, including breads, sweets, and bagels. Very busy. Had to wait 40 minutes. Told it's this way all the time. Fairly large place. Has an upstairs if you can do steps, counter, takeout area, and tables. Everything you can want in huge portions and reasonable price for what you get.
