Not Yesterday’s Dennisport

Downtown Dennisport is alive with a slew of new businesses and revitalized favorites that make it a perfect stop whether you’re looking for a casual day out or want to add something different to your daily routine.  Local businesses are the rule on this section of Route 28 (Main Street) and you’ll want to stay all day talking with the wonderful owners and their noteworthy staff.

Start your day on Dennisport’s Main Street with coffee and any number of delectable pastries or egg sandwiches from the locally famous Buckies Biscotti.  With plenty of space to sit with friends or catch up on emails while listening to the ever-changing and always upbeat music streaming in the café, Buckies is a must-visit. If a sweet treat is on your mind, pick up a cone or a cup at Auntie’s Ice Cream Parlor, where you’ll feel like you walked into a 1950s soda shop.

Wellness-minded visitors to Main Street can get grounded at Power Yoga of Cape Cod Dennisport, the second outpost of this popular yoga haven. They offer a series of classes designed to both restore and elevate, as well as a boutique stocked with all you need to make your practice comfortable. Follow your class with a fresh-squeezed vegetable juice from Dennisport Natural Market, one of the Cape’s top local markets for fresh, organic produce.

Pet lovers will be instantly drawn next door to Hot Diggity Dog Wash & Boutique where expert groomers take care of your dog as though they were their own.  Want to wash Fido yourself?  No problem – stick him in one of the four spacious tubs complete with natural cleansing products and powerful dryers.  Treat your pup to a plethora of treats or maybe a new toy. Check out the PLAY “Under the Sea” collection – a percentage of sales of those toys benefit Cape Cod-based IFAW!  Hot Diggity has your kitty covered as well, with a selection of goods for our feline friends.

For home goods, unique gifts and interior design accents, Sodium as well as the newly openedPorter and Mags offer plenty of options for any budget or aesthetic.  Adding to your art collection?  Stop into the De Castellane Gallery, where owner Hans De Castellane can tell you more about the schooner mural behind the Main Street shops.  Ask him about his paint parties, which have become a hit among local ladies, or his lessons for children.

At the end of the day, enjoy some local raw bar at The Oyster Company. Or, hop in the car for a short ride to Ocean House for an appetizer and a cocktail overlooking Nantucket Sound.
