We were on the Cape for my wife's birthday weekend and I looked for highly-rated restaurants where to celebrate. Mooncussers is unassuming on the outside, and even the decor, belying how good the food is. We started with the Crispy Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps and...More

You should ask the establishment; they are very nice people and will strive to help. Here is a link to their menu and it appears that there are vegetarian options. Go to their website to view the menu.
