Optimist Café is a small but popular restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Full range of choices (eggs, omelets, French toast, pancakes), but everything is beautifully prepared and delicious. We splurged with French toast and pancakes -- plain and blueberry. Bacon was perfectly crisped and sausage well seasoned. Coffee was better than most Cape restaurants. Indoor and outdoor seating; good wait staff; pleasant experience.

We called in here for lunch on a very hot day and found the place lovely and cool. There was a good selection of items on the menu and we selected bagel and salmon and scones with devon cream and jam, which we shared. Happy to recommend and the staff we very nice.

We ate here for lunch today following a kayak trip. There were 6 of us and we ate out on the patio. Overall, the food was good but, boy, did it take forever to get it. Our waiter said they were shorthanded in the kitchen, but our lunch took 45 minutes to get to the table! But it was tasty.....

Have driven by here 100's of times and finally stopped in for breakfast. Food was ok, service a bit slow, but it is a nice place, outdoor patio as well as a larger than it looks. Good breakfast place to meet and convenient on 6A

This is a unique and charming restaurant on historic Route 6A in Yarmouth Port. My friend and I were looking for a leisurely afternoon of high tea. The Optimist Cafe was the perfect place. Although "tea sandwiches" were not listed on the menu, we had seen the selection online and our waiter inquired in the kitchen. To our delight, we were indeed able to order high tea. Our food consisted of delicious scones with jam and clotted cream, dainty finger sandwiches and dessert squares. We each ordered a pot of tea, which came separately. We liked the selection of tea .
The restaurant serves breakfast all day, as well as a variety of lunch items, such as soups, salads, sandwiches, crepes, etc. In addition to hot and cold drinks, wine and beer are also available. There seems a varied enough menu to please just about everyone.
The ambiance is quite pleasant, as we noticed original artwork (for sale) on the walls.
We had a delightful experience and will definitely return.
