Great coffee

Really pleased we stopped here for a coffee. Tasted really good unlike many we have had on our visit to the states. Nice friendly setting and a shop stocked full of goodies. Well worth a visit.

We purchased chilled wine, two cheeses, crackers, prosciutto, and homemade baked goods. They had yummy sandwiches too. There was live entertainment on the patio from 12-3.

This is a great little gourmet shop that has a great selection of food, cheese, beer and wine. Michael (owner and resident chef) makes a good selection of sandwiches, cheese plates and salads for lunch. More recently, he began making premade meals as well that are incredible! Lots of ethnic choices too, which is nice! Don't miss this place if... More

As a European travelling through the Cape I came across the Brown Jug quite by accident - and really glad I did! Great quality food and wines that I have not found anywhere outside of a major US city before. It was a manna from heaven! Friendly and knowledgeable staff who know the quality products they sell. Just ask and... More

We stepped into this little, well not sure what to call it, store, cafe, tasting shop etc. There was a beer tasting going on with local beer so we enjoyed that. We looked around at the unique treats and listened to some music

Located in quaint... More

A year round resident of Cape Cod, I return to the Brown Jug again and again. I love stepping through the doors to discover what music will be playing, getting my coffee and perusing the shelves for new items. It is a great place to grab a sandwich, croissant or cheese tray for lunch ... take it to go or... More

As someone who loves a great glass of wine (but doesn't know enough to have his own wine cellar), the Brown Jug is the only place I go where I can tell them my budget, likes and preferences and they will come up with the perfect wine for every occasion. By pre-screening every wine on their shelves so you dont... More
