Military Travel Tips and Deals – Cape Cod
In our first Cape Cod blog post, we gave you a suggestion of where to stop for great lobster on your way to the Cape. In our second Cape Cod blog post, we highlighted a few lodging gems. In our third Cape Cod blog post, we explored the natural beauty of the Cape Cod National Seashore and the lighthouses. And in our fourth post, we introduced you to the site of the first pilgrim landing. That leaves us with the post that you food lovers have been waiting for – where to eat in Cape Cod!
Yes, you are in seafood heaven, but beware, not all seafood restaurants were made equal! And the gems are typically hidden away with the locals holding the key to their location. The Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force and Coast Guard families should skip the Chinese buffet restaurants or the bars trying to entice you with “gourmet menus”. For a hearty brunch, look no further than the Keltic Kitchen (415 Route 28, West Yarmouth). Not far from the Cove at Yarmouth, this Irish restaurant knows how to do breakfast and brunch right! You will not go wrong here. The atmosphere is hospitable, just like if you stepped into someone’s home. The usual items are available for breakfast but you have to try the lobster benedict. The chunks of lobster were complimented by the wonderfully poached egg and the hollandaise sauce. The food here made us want to stay longer in the Cape just to try more dishes!
What’s seafood without a few fried items? The Kream N Kone is your answer to fried seafood heaven. Located at 961 Main Street, West Dennis. Their fried clams and scallops are a real treat, fried golden brown with a crunch and texture that reminds you of why fried food must be bad for you! The atmosphere is casual and weather permitting, you should sit outside. The onion rings are also a hot item. The lobster roll looks to be quite appetizing, however, this is fried seafood heaven, so why try anything else?
That’s it for our series on Cape Cod. Check back soon to see where our next adventures take us!
