Perfect Lunch Spot

Perfect spot for our family lunch - salads for my husband & me (loved the Arugula Beet Salad!), an omelet for my 10 year old (breakfast served until 3 pm) and a buttered bagel for my 8 year old. Sweet outdoor deck, surrounded by flowers. A welcome break from seafood, fried food and ice cream!

I've eaten here and have never expected great service, but have always enjoyed the food. As I've eluded to, service has never been a high point, being known as a laid back place for a fresh meal has made up for it. Showed up this evening to grab a baked good for a dessert. Waited five minutes, a server alludes... More

Friends recommended the baked goods, especially the croissants that rival those in Europe! We had lunch and ordered fish and chips that arrived without salt for my special diet. Light batter with fresh fish was so satisfying. Did not try the home baked desserts but they looked tempting. Open for all three meals, the spot has both outdoor and indoor... More

We needed a light dinner before a WHAT show & FF fit the bill. The back patio on a beautiful day with wild flowers blooming, along with the pan-roasted mussels and a couple pizzas to split, perfect. Plus, our server Tim couldn't have been better.

The fare here is very good. We enjoyed a fresh and delicious breakfast here and ordered at the window. When you choose to sit outside as we did they bring your food out to you when it's ready and you bus your own table. If you go on a Saturday morning be prepared to wait for a seat or simply... More

This is a lovely place to stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The outside seating is plentiful, the inside seating less plentiful, and the food is consistently good. They have a bar and the occasional music in the evening. Love this place.

This is a great place for breakfast. The eggs are fresh and the baked goods really delicious. I had scrambled eggs, ham, and a croissant. The scrambled eggs were light and fluffy, the croissant just melted in your mouth. The inside seating area is small but comfortable. Most people prefer to sit outside. Good value for an excellent breakfast.

Great breakfast food served by amiable servers in a casual and comfortable setting. Good coffee and pastries. Reasonably priced for very good quality. Love their 9 grain toast!

My nephew, who lives in Wellfleet, brought us to this wonderful cafe for breakfast. Seating inside was fairly limited, but they have lots of space outside on their deck. So, two ways to go: 1) wait, inside for a table and service or 2) al fresco - go outside, place your order at a window then have the service bring... More
