My family and I were looking for a place to eat breakfast one morning and the first place google sent us was to "Grumpy's" in Dennis, well there was a line of 30 people and I don't think breakfast joints are ever so good that you should ever have to wait on a line, so we kept searching and came...

We were very disappointed. We drove for well over half-an-hour specially to get here for "afternoon tea". We had seen good reviews, and Trip Advisor shows the restaurant was open to 4 pm. We got there just before 3 pm, and the door was already locked. This was on August 13, in the very busy summer season. A lady came... More

We have driven by this place many times over the years and this past weekend decided to try it for breakfast. Inside has a artsy feel with paintings on the wall. It appears to be an old house and was very spacious inside. We ordered drinks and then breakfast. My mom said the coffee was very good, I had the... More

Very slow service and mediocre food. Would not return, too many excellent breakfast places in the area.

Food and decor was wonderful, unfortunately the service was extremely slow considering the restaurant was so quiet - seemed to be short staffed. Would try again though...

Stopped for lunch on a weekday around 2pm. We had a good hamburger and turkey wrap. Wait staff could have been a little more attentive, given how few customers there were at the time. Overall we were happy to have eaten there.

Recently sold and new menu. Very clean. We all ordered scrambled eggs. They were very dry. The place was not crowded so there was no excuse. Cost for what you get ? Above average.

Optimist Café is a small but popular restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Full range of choices (eggs, omelets, French toast, pancakes), but everything is beautifully prepared and delicious. We splurged with French toast and pancakes -- plain and blueberry. Bacon was perfectly crisped and sausage well seasoned. Coffee was better than most Cape restaurants. Indoor and outdoor seating; good wait... More

We called in here for lunch on a very hot day and found the place lovely and cool. There was a good selection of items on the menu and we selected bagel and salmon and scones with devon cream and jam, which we shared. Happy to recommend and the staff we very nice.
