HYANNIS, Barnstable’s vibrant urban center, is teeming with year-round happenings, businesses and restaurants to explore.

Main Street is the beating heart of the village. Get a wholesome breakfast at The Daily Paper or Sea Street Cafe, made-to-order egg sandwiches at Bagels & Beyond 2, or fresh pastries and espresso at Chez Antoine, NONNO, Grand Cafe and Brazilian Grill offer a wide variety of lunch options, but if you’re craving classic Americana, hit Tap City and Finn’s Craft Beer Taphouse. Summertime calls for afternoons and evenings at Smith Family Beer Garden, Main Street’s best outdoor hang.

International cruising abounds here. For Peruvian, Tumi is the spot, Taste of Siam has your tongue-tingling Thai, Mi Pueblo and El Mariachi Loco serve authentic flavors of Mexico, and Añejo slings contemporary south of the border cuisine. Expertly plated food and balanced cocktails live at The West End, The Naked Oyster, and Misaki. Score your confections at Little Miss Cupcape, Katie’s Ice Cream, Gone Açai, or Kandy Korner.

Get your next OOTD at Puritan, Bella Cris or Country Soul, Mass Bay Co for utilitarian threads, Chelsea’s Swimwear for your beach day needs, or Plush and Plunder and 606 Thrift for pre-loved fashions. For gifts and home goods peruse Jewelcraft, Bugg’s Place Toys, Soho Arts Co, Cape Cod Jewelers, Red Fish Blue Fish, Moonshine Leather, and Love Live Local, while Hyannis Country Garden’s 7 acres have all your agricultural needs.

Just outside of downtown, Cape Cod Beer and Barnstable Brewing have your hops, Pain D’Avignon bakes up fresh breads + brunches, and Great Awakening Coffee House has your cuppa joe. Black Cat Tavern, Spanky’s Clam Shack and Baxter’s are popular waterfront dining options along Hyannis Harbor.

Visit the HyArts Artist Shanties at Bismore Park and Harbor Overlook to mingle with local artists or visit cultural attractions like the JFK Hyannis Museum, Cape Cod Maritime Museum, or Zion Union Heritage Museum.

For daytime fun, head to House of Hatchets or Steve and Sue’s Par-Tee Freeze + Mini Golf, Veterans Park Beach or Kalmus Beach, or take it up a notch and hop on a Cape Heli Tour. In the evening, witness the rotating stage at the Melody Tent or allow the Cape Symphony to inspire joy.
