Cape Cod - Sunday Brunch Recommendations

Zebra222 Sep 27, 2012 09:49 AM

I'd love to get some recommendations for the best places for Sunday brunch. We're on the lower Cape, but have car/ will travel. (Probably not quite as far as Falmouth, though.) Love nice, relaxing atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices.

Thanks very much in advance.

    We went to Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet twice in the last week for breakfast(they serve breakfast until 12), and had stellar meals, as we always have for breakfast. !st time I got a mushroom and cheddar omelet with toast, home fries and fresh squeezed oj, and DH got corned beef hash, 3 eggs over easy, home fries, toast and oj. $24 before tip. 2nd meal we split french toast and a waffle, we each got maple syrup (upcharge), sides of bacon, oj, and milk. Total before tip $31 We don't eat breakfast very often in real life, but WO's has been so consistently excellent- presented with real care and quality ingredients- over the years that we never think of going anywhere else when we do have it and we're on the Cape. Nearby Van Rensellaer's and Laura and Tony's also serve breakfast, with the latter an all- you can eat buffet for $11.95.

      Go directly to Hangar B at the Chatham Airport. Do not pass on the heavenly beet based "Red Flannel hash. The lemon ricotta pancakes with real maple syrup and fresh fruit are to die for. The eggs benny, specialty omelets, homemade donuts with house made jams are all worth the trip. Not a true brunch, but maybe the best breakfast you'll ever eat on the Cape, or anywhere else for that matter.

        Yes. Hangar B for the red flannel hash. Or the Breakfast Sandwich (scrambled eggs with cheddar on a griddled croissant, with roasted tomatoes, avocado and arugula)....it was wonderful. 100% agree with CCG and wish I could be there now.

          My friend and I had a fantastic brunch at Lyric (Rt 6A, Yarmouth Port) on Sunday. It's a beautiful, well laid out restaurant with great natural light. The menu was so great, I can't wait to go back and work my way through it. We both got the same thing: Eggs Benedict on grilled brioche with duck hash (instead of the Canadian bacon) for $10. No, we weren't redesigning the menu, this is an option! It was insanely delicious. Served with hash browns and fruit salad. Perfect lemony Hollandaise, too. We probably needed a side of Lipitor, but it was worth it. Our waitress was great, and I loved watching Ann, the owner, greet all of her guests. Piano player was just starting as we were leaving. Other menu items (that I can remember) that I want to go back and try: calves liver, a BLT, braised short ribs over grits, steak tips, build your own omelet, fish and chips, and the burger. The prices are insanely reasonable for a fine dining brunch experience.

            Great rec. We had dinner there last weekend and were very pleased! I will write a report when I get a chance. I also noticed the brunch menu. Very reasonable and inviting as you said. They are also doing a lighter fare menu in the bar and "music room" at night which is an insane value. Ann was singing when we were there accompanied by the piano. Wonderful!

              Thanks so much for the replies. I think I'm going to go for Lyric. From Cyclista's description, it sounds as though it's just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, my sister's trip down has been delayed, so we won't be going until next month. I'll be sure, though, to get back on site to let you know our reactions.

              This sister and I had lunch last week at Marshside which we both enjoyed immensely. I did read a few negative comments here about the food's not being up to par, but with Marshland's atmosphere and views they would have had to serve me Alpo au jus for me to complain. When my daughter comes down, I'm taking her there - I love it!!

                  that may be about their temp shut down on the 2nd in the AM...they had a gas issue...Tracy said the 3rd was their last Sunday until April. If you know something different, I AM VERY HAPPY... :) They may do some dinners in March and of course, the V Day dinner.

                    I called, and it looks like they are, indeed, closed until early April, with the exception of their special Valentine's Day soiree.... :(
