Hi all... Spending a weekend on the Cape this November. Where to eat? What is open? We'll be staying in Sandwich, but driving around quite a bit. Good, local food cooked with care preferred to anything too pretentious.
Many, many thanks!!

    I don't dine in Sandwich but there are quite a few options in Mashpee you may wish to check out on www.yelp.com and here. Bleu used to be nice. If you don't mind driving head Ocean House in Dennisport is a find as well as Harvest Wine Bar and Gallery . Go to Harvest around 5:30 via Route 6 A...about 30 min from E. Sandwich. Lovely raw bar and wine and delicious food. Hyannis you may wish to try Cafe Boulangerie at Pain D'Avignon.

      Great suggestions, thank you! We don't mind driving (we live in LA, so we are used to driving for good food...). We'll go probably go down to Falmouth and Chatham too. :)

        Another question; we also cook a lot at home. Where to go for organic produce and local meats, etc? Summertime has all the Farmer's markets and CSA farms, but as far as I know they are all but closed by now... Any input greatly appreciated, thanks again!

          I really like Cafe Chew in Sandwich for breakfast. I don't know how oganic, but Joe's Lobster and Fish Market is good (and open) for buying and cooking at home.
          I second phelana's rec. of Cafe Boulangerie in Hyannis, and we also like Embargo in Hyannis (happy hour every day 4:30-6:00, half price tapas and .99 oysters.)
          Also, I think another phelana rec. is Momo's in East Sandwich. It is a gourmet food shop, lovely.

            My mom likes Cafe Chew as well, although I haven't tried it yet. Pain d'Avignon in Hyannis has breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as breads and specialty items for takeout. Another gourmet food shop in Sandwich is Brown Jug, which also has sandwiches to eat in or take out. They have an adjacent wine shop, too. Their license used to be seasonal, but I think it is now open year-round.

              I really like The Brown Jug as well, though their
              hours seem sporadic. The wine shop portion has
              a huge selection of items not seen elsewhere (ex
              sparkling saki) and they are very knowledgable.

            Here is a link to a source of info on farmers' markets: http://www.mass.gov/agr/massgrown/map...

            I also agree Cafe Boulangerie is worth a visit.

              Cafe Chew, not to miss..wow...Momo is a cutie pie shop but their menu is limited compared to Chew. Also Momo does not have public bathrooms to keep in mind. I get take out so it's ok but before I sit down and eat I have to wash my hands. Here, you cannot.
