This is a cozy, welcoming old fashioned Italian restaurant with great food and exceptional service. (Shout out to our waitress, Deer.) Everything was fresh, local, delicious. The Native Corn Soup was outstanding as was the Limoncello cake. Highly recommend.

This is a must stop for breakfast or a snack. All of their baked goods are so delicious - you can't go wrong with any of them. Croissants are amazing and the muffins are HUGE and so yummy. Their iced coffee is also one of my favourites. This place is always packed, so it's often hard to find a seat. Most people take their food to go.

We came for dinner late on a Friday, sat at the bar and had a wonderful meal! The bartender, Jason, is just as skilled at high-end server skills as he is as a bartender. Overall, a wonderful meal and experience and because I am a local, I plan to repeat the experience soon!

Aunties' Ice Cream Parlor

Enjoy a step back in time at one of Cape Cod's only year-round ice cream establishments serving traditional ice cream treats - cones and cups, sundaes, frappes, malts, floats, and old-fashioned ice cream sodas. At any one time we feature 36 flavors of delicious, creamy super-premium ice cream and amazing low-fat frozen yogurt made by Polar Cave (of Mashpee.) For our dairy-free fans, we also offer four flavors of Richie's super premium Italian Ice.

Viera

Reviewed By Taylor B - Chicago, Illinois

The first thing you learn when vacationing in the Boston/Cape Cod area is how many quality restaurants there are to behold. The second thing is you better like seafood. Viera, located at 11 Route 28 in West Harwich, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, is considered one of the top 10 restaurants on the Cape. Probably because chef Benjamin Porter serves some wonderful seafood dishes and some out-of-the-Cape desserts. We started with fresh clam chowder, Classic Caesar salad and a house-made Charcuterie Board with meats, pickles, breads and jams. For entrees, my wife chose sauteed Cape sea scallops over pan seared local codfish and Italian sausage pasta while I opted for pan seared North Atlantic halibut over sauteed organic salmon and poached local lobster. Dessert was a treat. There were several tasty and tempting options and we finally decided to share roasted strawberry and coconut panna cotta and almond streusel with strawberry Sambuca sorbet. That certainly beats vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce. There are so many varieties of seafood available in New England and it is interesting to see why local chefs choose one fish from another and how they prepare them. At Viera, you don't have to choose seafood--but you should.

If you're looking for something fancy, this isn't it! But if you want something right off the grill, this is your place. Have burgers, chicken and dogs the way you want them and settle in at the picnic table of your choice. Simple but great!

Hand made ice cream on Cape Cod, what a combination. Lines were long but the staff was extremely good at what they do.
