Off the beaten path but close to one of Falmouth's biggest beaches, Dana's is terrific. Stand in line inside to order your salad or sandwich and then your playing card will tell the waitstaff where to bring your meal. The deck is shady and delightful - inside was a bit warm on the day of our visit, but crammed with... More

Maybe it was the wrong day we went for lunch but we nearly waited 30 min to place our order and another 40 min to get the food. The soft shell crab sandwich on challah bread was tasty and had fresh ingredients but the crab did not seem freshly fried. The Greek salad was fresh and packed with chunks of... More

Dana's was recommended to me and I am so glad I hired her to take care of my 50th birthday party. She took are of all my special requests and even more!!! She was thoughtful, and so professional. THE FOOD was exquisite. My friends, who come from abroad, still rave about it. LOVE LOVE DANA's.

How often can you be driving/biking/whatevering along a small road through the woods and happen upon a fabulous little restaurant where everything's great? Such is Dana's Kitchen! Everything is made fresh on site (except the veggies, of course, but they're grown nearby). Fresh baked breads and pastries, haddock chowder to die for, overstuffed sandwiches, etc., etc., etc. During the warm... More

If you are looking for unusually good food in an informal friendly atmosphere this is the place. Somewhere between goumet and healthy fresh home cooking. Prices are a bit high but worth it.

We've been frequenting Dana's Kitchen for a lot of years - it's one of my top two or three favorites for lunch in the Falmouth where we spend summers. It has more Cape Cod charm/character than you can imagine, and the food - completely fresh/homemade on site - consistently hits the spot as moderately-priced and delicious. I've eaten their salads,... More

The family takes great pride in their business and really care for their customers. An out of the way location that is an absolute... More

This is easily one of my favorite lunch locations to bring out of town visitors to because the atmosphere is so charming. The place is set in the woodland, with an outdoor eating area and a very inviting interior space that makes you feel like you're still part of the outside even in witner. The owners are friendly and passionate... More

Dana and Art are a great team offering superb pastries, salads and sandwiches. The soups are terrific and the scones are the best around. The coffee is great, too. YOu can't miss with anything you order.
