Pizza excellent. Looks from outside to be a bit more upscale - inside like a cafeteria. Nevertheless, it is worth the stop. Took awhile for pizza to come out, kids got impatient. Nice green salad. Didn't do the ice cream side of the shop, but it looks formidable.

....this would be a place to RAVE about. Please do get some ice cream. Your idea of what ice cream should be will never be the same EVER again!

Stopped for a takeout tuna sandwich...it took over 20 minutes? It was almost comical...yes they were busy, but this seemed ludicrous.

I stop by here at least once a day while in Truro, to get coffee, bagels (baked fresh every morning, along with delectable homemade berry scones and other pastries) and a newspaper after walking my dog on Corn Hill Beach. We also go there occasionally for supper (terrific pizza) and, best of all, the amazing homemade ice cream in both... More

Visit this place every year we're on the Cape. Seems to have boomed now (didn't seem as busy in prior years). I've always liked their food. Pizza is good. Sandwiches are typically good although this last time I had a pretty simple turkey sandwich that was pretty dry. Desserts are expensive, but good. Lines can be long in the summer.

We have eaten here for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner and have never been disappointed. The breakfast sandwiches are a hearty, delicious start to your day, especially if you are heading out on a long day of bicycling. The ice cream is made on the premises and is sinfully good. They also offer a wide range of baked goods. We... More

Our favorite stop on Route 6 to North Truro is Savory, Their Beanstock coffee is always fresh and hot with an amazing array of fresh baked goods I can never come in for just one. So many muffins, scones, pies and cupcakes. Along with their homemade croissants and bagels they do it all. Their signature breakfast sandwich "The Breaker' is... More

As annual summer visitors to the Cape, we never make a habit of stopping at Rte. 6 businesses, particularly not restaurants. However, in need of breakfast and coffee on way to the beach, we stopped at Savory. It was mobbed; there was a line to the door. However, the staff was hugely efficient; they functioned like a well-oiled machine. We... More

A great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Ptown. Has outdoor dining as well as indoor. The menu is basic family fare of burgers,pizza etc. The added bonus is the ice cream portion of the place. Flavors are traditional and unique i.e. lavender and fig-which was delicious. Casual and friendly.

Open early for morning coffee and very good bagels. Pizza is very good and sandwiches are delicious. Good place to hit after the beach for dinner and the ice cream shoppe next door is fantastic. Gets a little crowded but has nice outdoor covered porch. Right on rt 6 for easy in/out. Only place to get a good coffee or... More
