Cape Cod Redux

Most people probably don't think of Cape Cod as a premier Spring Break destination. (Well, some people do). In March, it's cold. Very cold. And due to the Cape's highly seasonal economy, many stores and restaurants aren't open until May. But that didn't stop M, D and I from hopping a Chinatown bus to Boston and driving out to spend a week in at the Commodore Inn in West Harwich. It was quiet, chilly, and completely lovely. We ate long breakfasts, visited Plymouth Rock, and drank a lot of wine. Here's what some of those breakfasts, plus a few lunches, looked like:

Two eggs over easy over corned beef hash with toasts and homefries, @ The Lighthouse Cafe, Harwich
Bacon, cheddar and onion omelette with toast and homefries @ The Lighthouse Cafe, Harwich
"Bacon bennies" with homemade hollandaise and homefies @ Sandi's Diner, Chatham
Cranbery pancakes and two eggs over easy @ Sandi's Diner, Chatham
We didn't always eat eggs: grilled cheese sandwich with chips and a pickle @ The Lighthouse Cafe, Harwich
Fried shrimp "early-bird" special @ Captain Parker's, Yarmouth
And last, but certainly not least, "meal unto itself" clam chowder @ Captain Parker's, Yarmouth
