Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
Take yourself on a tasty tour through Cape Cod and discover all the sweet stops the Mid Cape has to offer.
No matter how hard we may try to fight it, sometimes we must surrender to our sweet tooth. Whether it's for a morning pick me up or a late-night dessert, our desire for a little sugary goodness must be fulfilled. Look no farther than the Mid Cape for endless options for all things sweet to satisfy your cravings with the tasty treats these towns have to offer.
Despite the name, the best place to start your day and put a smile on your face is Grumpy’s. Known for fantastic prices and even better food, you’ll leave feeling full and happy. For that extra sweet breakfast treat, try the Banana Split Waffles. Loaded with whipped cream and smothered in maple syrup, you’ll be buzzing your way out the door from the sugar high.
If your breakfast needs are better satisfied with butter, consider puff pastry that melts in mouth at Pain D'Avignon. Their bakery and restaurant bring French tradition to the Cape in a unique way that truly makes it stand out. Try one of their perfectly puffed croissant pastries, a rich cinnamon pecan bun, or pick up a braided brioche bread as beautiful as it is delicious.
An excellent place to combine the love of sweets in both food and drink is the Optimist Café. Afternoon tea comes with handmade scones with hand-whipped Devon cream and preserves, finger sandwiches, along with a variety of specialty desserts. Of course, don’t forget the tea. On the flowery side, try the orange blossom, or if you prefer a decaf blend, go for the chamomile citrus. Choose up to four combinations; all teas are whole leaf blends made in hand-stitched, silky, translucent tea pouches.
Nirvana Coffee is the perfect stop for a pick me up for coffee lovers. Step into a delightful café-like setting or sit outside depending on the season. The large selection of latte flavors includes sweet treats like salted caramel, pralines and cream, toffee mocha, and many more. Beyond the classic hot chocolate, consider peppermint and white chocolate options. Try any one of their drinks or fresh daily prepared pastries and learn why this spot is popular with locals and tourists alike.
A genuine New England attitude will have you wanting ice cream no matter the season. When that mood strikes you, visit Cape Cod Creamery, whose Hyannis location is open year-round. Fill a cone with homemade, locally inspired flavors like Hyannis Heath Bar, Barnstable Bananas Foster, or Dennis Double Chocolate. No matter the temperature, have a scoop of a New England classic.
Follow the aroma of fresh-baked cookies to Kayak Cookies. With many flavors and sizes to choose from, why limit yourself to a single one? Try the original oatmeal raisin cookie that started it all - the perfect mix of sweet and salty with the right amount of chewy. Or go for something more decadent, like their chocolate cookie, which blends semisweet with bittersweet that will have your mouth watering for more.
