Always the best for breakfast and as I probably said before the Melt-a-ways are to die for. Long established bakery with scrumptious waffles and muffins and other baked good along with regular breakfast fare. Doesn't get any better than this.although we locals like to keep it a secret..

Bonatt's is a must for us when we visit. Their meltaways are part of our Cape vacation tradition. We have them almost every morning. When we're really craving them at other times of the year, the staff is wonderful enough to let us place an order to be shipped to our home.

As always, my grandchildren request that we stock up on Bonnatt's Melt-aways for their visits, and they rave about them the rest of the year......no exception this year......go early, however, as they sometimes run out as early as 11 AM......breakfast fare is, as always, still excellently prepared and served, just don't go there if you're in a hurry, as there...

Enjoyed a very good breakfast at Bonatt's this morning. The restaurant was hopping but we were seated immediately. We actually sat for quite awhile before our waitress arrived at our table. This was the start of poor service that continued throughout our breakfast. I'm not a demanding customer but our waitress was so inattentive. She never stopped by to refill... More

If the Bonatt family returned a few years ago.... Well what happened to the original melt away recipe? It's nothing like it once was. We've been going for 21 years and always think of the past. Sorry in advance. Figure it out and you will make many people in the community very happy.

Since you only came into Meltaways 21 years ago, you missed my father-in-law by 43 years and my husband by 17 years. So sorry about that. The "meltaway" you experienced and seem to prefer was not their original recipe. Possibly you can find another pastry to fill that void. Most former customers of the original recipe say we have brought... More

Tried a few different things here.. Can't imagine this kind of amazing customer service in a bakery where I live. Tried a melt away and a cranberry orange muffin and both were 2 die 4!! The lady who helped us kept giving us little samples. It was fun:)

Our Cape Cod vacation involves almost daily visits to Bonatt's for their meltaways and their dirt bomb muffins. We can't help ourselves.

The breakfast options are numerous and, as people have said, the bakery is incredible. Always a line out the door of both during the summer. You want to get a MeltAway and savor it--it's the taste of summer!

A wide variety of well prepared tasty meals. Great omelettes and corned beef hash. Waffles and pancakes and big selection of eggs Benedict dishes! Very busy place. Just wait for a table. It's worth it. And don't forget to order the famous Meltaway.
