Dennis is a well-known cultural center on Cape Cod with the Cape Cod Museum of Art,Cape Cinema and the Cape Playhouse all on one campus – but now, as you head into town on Main Street (Route 6A), you will see it has become so much more.
In addition to the retail mainstays of Linda Burke and Barn & Co, new shops have opened recently, making it a great shopping destination. Right on Main Street is Scout, a charming little shop perfect for Francophiles and to find everything you didn’t know you needed. Also on Main Street is Black Eel Outfitters which stocks clothing for those looking for stylish comfort, as well as gear and accessories for boaters and those who love fishing. Tucked back off of Main Street is Deep Blue, which offers both new and vintage home goods and furniture, as well as unique gifts and jewelry.
Of course if you are making a day, afternoon, or evening of it there are plenty of places that offer quality sustenance. Start the day off at the Underground Bakery, where their coffee and muffins are to die for. You can also head there for lunch or hop next door to the Mercantile for killer sandwiches. Dinner options include the tried and true Scargo Café, foodie-heaven Fin, or Harvest Gallery & Wine Bar (where live music will always be found). Want to grab some wine and cheese for home? Stop by the newly opened Sapori d’Italia where the choices will not disappoint.
A day on Cape Cod wouldn’t be complete without a little sweet treat whether it is a piece of fudge or a truffle from Nancy’s Candy, gelato from new-kid-on-the-blockGoodFellas Gelateria, or ice cream from The Ice Cream Smuggler.
