The Cape is famous for its delicious but casual dining experience, that includes locally caught lobster, mussels, clams and fish. Whether it’s fish and chips on the pier, or classic dining, it’s an experience you won’t forget. Equally breakfast is not to be forgotten, if you’d like to get out one morning, you can grab a delicious breakfast sandwich and cappuccino, enjoy various healthy conscious options, or enjoy a classic like eggs benedict at one of several Orleans breakfast eateries. With so much to choose from, for our “best breakfasts”, we have selected local spots only, all within five minutes of The Parsonage.
