P-town Scavenger Hunt... help?

We're leaving on Friday to spend a week in P-town. We've only been there once and for only a few hours. I know there are lots of threads on this board about P-town... but they are a little overwhelming. Anyone willing to help me find the following?


Lobster Roll:
Lobster Dinner:
Clam Chowder:
Ice Cream Shop:
Romantic Dinner:
Non-American Cuisine:
Wine & Cheese:
Beach Dining:

and, not at all food related, but...

Whale Excursion:

:) Thanks in advance!

**I should clarify that we will have a car and are willing to travel anywhere on the Cape. Though, I'd prefer recs in P-town proper.

  1. Whale Excursion: Portuguese Princess.

    You didn't ask, but I'll submit, best (arguably) place for a cocktail(s) with local atmosphere, The Governor Bradford.

    Best Dessert: That Portuguese place, somebody that knows what I'm talking about, please help me with the name. "The Portuguese Bakery", I think?
