We went here for lunch before checking into our neaby Inn. I had high expecations but the service was a bit spotty and we were put in a side 'bar' room that was cold. My husband had a club sandwich that was yummy, but the fries came out when he was almost done eating his sandwich. I had a half... More

On a Saturday afternoon, mom wanted to take me out to lunch and suggested this cafe since she hadn't been in a few years. I had not been here since it was called the Aardvark years ago, and the Ginger Bread House before that. We arrived about 1:30 and went right in, being too cool to enjoy the out door... More

I went to the Optimist Cafe because it sounded a little different and boasted gluten-free options in their ads. The restaurant is very cute, tastefully decorated and clean. I don't eat much dairy as well as being gluten free, so my options were a little more limited, but I wasn't that hungry anyway. I opted for a gf English muffin... More

We just arrived at the Cape and our rental wasn't ready. Drove by the restaurant and decided to stop for lunch. Had a couple of great sandwiches and ice teas. Service was good and price was reasonable. That said we went back 4 days later and got a large breakfast order to take back to the house. Food was great... More

I was looking forward to trying this restaurant. It was relatively busy which encouraged me. I ordered a short stack of pancakes. I had to ask the waiter to clean the table since it was sticky and dirty. After about 15 minutes he brought the breakfast, and I had to ask him for a napkin And silverware. The pancakes were... More

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
