Cape Cod


Cape Cod was so wonderful, beautiful weather, house 1/10th of a mile from the beach. Ahhh perfect. We went on tons of walks on the beach, visited little towns, and relaxed.

Food in tourist towns can be elusive... there are a TON of bar food places... which John isn't a fan of and I'm ok with but not all the time... we did manage to find some great chow though!

The Swan River Restaurant was fantastic! I ate lobster there twice while we were in town :) The other high point was a sesame crusted tuna that John had one night... simply superbe! Highly recommend it!

Another stop was to the Lighthouse Inn... the menu online had so many tasty things we figured we would all find something amazing to eat... or so we thought. We went on labor day... apparently on labor day they cut their meny down to 4 things.... yeahhhh the mom's and I ordered the scallop special, delicious... John order what sounded like a very tasty chicken with a salsa ontop, when it came out from the kitchen I looked over and all I could think was "WOW that is the most dead dry piece of chicken I've ever seen..." totally unaceptable it was disgusting looking, I would NOT go back to this place. Needless to say we sent the chicken back, had there been more than 4 items on the menu John would have ordered something else... but all the things he had wanted to order were no longer offered.... so he went for a walk on the beach while we had our dinner (poor john :( I cooked him a nice dinner once we got back to the house, he's a good sport)

We also went to a mexican pizzeria... I know weird... BUT SO GLAD WE WENT! BZ's was amazing! I don't have the image I still need to get it off Mom's camera but will post once I do... John and I shared a buffalo chicken pizza that was crisp and very delicious. Our mom's shared a napolian pizza mmmmm.

After dropping my mom off at the very tiny hyannis airport John had an idea to go on a tasting adventure. We were going to randomly stop and grab bagels, muffins, coffee, from all different little shops and just keep shop hopping until we were stuffed!

The first stop was at a little Bagel place where we shared a whole wheat bagel with an egg on it... it was so delicious we wish we had ordered two... but we were already on our way to our next stop...

The above muffin came from Picadelli Bakery... it cost $1.25 and was the best muffin ever, it was a low fat apple carmel muffin. I didn't get it because it was low fat... I got it because it was the best looking muffin there, I wish I had my camera... since the muffin didn't make it home :)

Our next stop was to Seven Bean Coffee. Such a CUTE place, if you are in Cape Cod you have to stop there! It's so comfy and cozy inside and they serve caribou coffee which smelled a bit weird but tasted amazing hehe. We also got a muffin at seven bean. It was a banana nut muffin, it tasted a bit like fake banana though which was a let down.. we should have gotten the sin-a-muffin... think cinnamon roll in muffin form... oh yeahhhhh YUM!

Oh and we can't forget about all the great ice cream places we visited! I had the best coffee heath bar ice cream (home made) from a little place at the edge of the main drag of stores in Chatham... I can't remember the name... man what was it... well anyway go find it! Cause it's so good!!

And don't forget the Candy Manor store where you can get salt water taffy! :)



Ok that's all from me.. here are some other random pictures from the trip...

Hi -
I'm one of your bakers from round 2 of Operation Baking Gals. I wish I would have known you were coming down the Cape. I would have recommended my cousin's restaurant The Island Merchant in Hyannis. A bit of a hike from Chatham, but totally worth it.
Maybe next time!
Best-
Joanna
