A great place for breakfast in Wellfleet! Typical breakfast selection on the Cape, I always get an egg sandwich which is great. Coffee is brewed fresh and wonderful. The bakery sells everything from muffins to bagels to pastries. Indoor and outdoor dining.

We were staying in a house nearby and frequented this cafe for breakfast. The coffee is good (same beans every other cafe has on the Cape), and everyone I was with enjoyed their food. They have a lot of gluten free options, which is good for those who need that. Personally, I'm vegan, and would like to see some vegan... More

Summer time-casual. Friendly family, warm and welcoming staff....just the place for breakfast...outdoors on a lovely deck surrounded by gardens or indoors near the wonderful bakery and coffee bar.

This cozy spot is perfect for quick coffee or a full breakfast. We did both- coffee and scone one morning that we enjoyed so much we decided to go back the next morning to try full breakfast. Pancakes are amazing. Delicious breakfast burrito. Wonderful lattes and super friendly service.

Driving down from Provincetown, looking for a good breakfast on TripAdvisor - not many places open this early in the season. But this place is open, has a good-looking breakfast menu, and their friendly single webpage says "Opening in the Spring for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner". Worth a detour off the highway... Nope! A single young girl left alone to manage. "We haven't... More

Always come here for breakfast at least a few times when I am visiting. They have a great selection of pastry items along with hot items. The coffee is so good! A must try place!

Favorite pizza spot in Wellfleet hands down. Our family loves the Bianca pizza with a beet salad and their amazing conch fritters. Did I mention how amazing the conch fritters are? This is by far one of our favs!

Great place! Discovered it in July. Back to Wellfleet for my daughter's wedding this weekend. My son and I did a pre-wedding breakfast and game planning there that morning. Lovely engaging staff too. Even better -the wedding cake came from here and it was gorgeous and delicious!
