RESTAURANTS (These are just the ones we have tried; many more to choose from)
Savory – 316 Rt. 6, Truro – When it’s time to go out for a meal, we never get much further than Savory. Handmade pizzas and wraps, subs, grinders, panini, hoagies, wedges, salads and awesome breakfast sandwiches. But the real reason to go is for their unparalleled baked goodies, and casual, friendly atmosphere. It’s Truro’s version of a small-town diner. Menu
Sweet Escape – And the other real reason to eat at Savory is that Sweet Escape shares a space with them: the best ice cream, and the widest selection of flavors that you’re going to encounter on this vacation.
Moby Dick’s – 3225 U.S. 6, Wellfleet – Big place right on Rt. 6. Can’t miss it. All the traditional seafood comfort food. Very casual. Get one of their t-shirts, wear it to an exotic place next vacation, send them the pic and they’ll put it on their wall. Most staff are students from around the world on a summer adventure; ask them about their home countries. Menu
The Lighthouse – 317 Main Street, Wellfleet – Downtown Wellfleet – Another old family tradition: muffins at the Lighthouse. Go get a muffin. UPDATE: The Lighthouse is no more!
PJ’s – 2616 U.S. 6, Wellfleet – Wide range of seafood comfort food. Very casual. Another family tradition. Actually, one of many places like it on Rt. 6 in Wellfleet and Eastham. Menu
Whitman House – Rt. 6, just south of Savory – Mid-price full-menu dinners. Old, traditional; this is where we had our wedding reception in 1979. Menu
Montano’s – North of the Highland Light exit on Rt. 6. Italian and other specialties; homemade pasta. Early bird specials on weekends. Menu
Captain’s Choice – 4 Highland Rd., North Truro – Full menu of seafood, both standard comfort food, and some really tasty specialties – unusual and memorable. It’s owned by a long-established, local seafood wholesaler. Menu
Chequessett Chocolate – New in 2016, a couple of doors down from Captain’s Choice. We know people who stop here every day. Craft chocolate. ‘Nuff said. Website
Blackfish – 17 Truro Center Rd. – (508) 349-3399 – Right in downtown Truro, just north of Jam’s and the PO. Expensive and elegant food in an informal atmosphere. Check the menu before you go.
Wicked Oyster – 50 Main St., Wellfleet – Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Full menu, upscale, a little pricey. We had a pretty good breakfast there; interesting home fries. Menu
Bookstore and Restaurant – Location – Right on Wellfleet Harbor – “A funky year-round seafood institution,” according to Google Maps. We had Easter dinner here and loved it. And the attached bookstore is funky, too – don’t miss it. Menu
Savory & Sweet Escape – 316 Rt. 6, Truro – Good food, good ice cream, good coffee. What more do you want? Full breakfast menu, too. 3.8 miles from the house.

Flying Fish – Great coffee and goodies, around the corner from downtown Wellfleet on Briar Lane. 5.6 miles from the house. Meals, too, but we haven’t tried them yet. Menu
Dunkin’ Donuts – Rt. 6, Wellfleet. 6.6 miles from the house.
