For an immediate taste of sunshine, head to Sunbird Kitchen at 85 Route 6A in Orleans, where J’aime and Christian Sparrow and Karen Densmore recently opened a summer-y new brick-and-mortar outpost of their popular Wellfleet-based food truck.
Sunbird focuses on fresh food that tastes great and feels good. Grab a bottle of The Local Juice or a coffee and a housemade treat to eat on the fly, or stay for breakfast or lunch. You’ll find inventive pairings of sweet and savory like lavender pink peppercorn shortbread and hearty polenta with citrus ricotta. The Bird Seed Bread is outrageously good and turns any sandwich into a gluten-free option (insider tip: add a fried egg to the porchetta sandwich for pure bliss!).
With fun avian references, three distinct spaces (a loungey area perfect for coffee, custom crafted tables, and a gorgeous communal high-top overlooking the pristine open kitchen) and DIY details like the craft paper and chalkboard menu walls, Sunbird feels like a B12 shot for the soul.
