As cooler days begin to arrive on Cape Cod, our thoughts start to turn to the simple pleasures in life: a roaring fire in the fireplace, a cup of steaming hot coffee on a cold November morning, and a sweet treat that fills the empty spaces in our stomach as it warms our souls. Because we Northeasterners understand that a piece of pie or a cupcake or even a homemade piece of fudge is the way to anyone’s hearts, our bakeries are amongst the best in the nation! When it’s time for your Chatham vacation, be sure to make some time to stop in any, or all, of the following establishments; these are the best bakeries in Chatham!
If you’ve ever attempted to make your own pie from scratch, you understand it’s not as easy as it looks. From the crust to the filling to the toppings, it takes a pie artist to conquer the problems and create heaven. Marion’s Pie Shop has been serving pies since 1947, and even though neither of the owners today are named Marion, their pies are masterpieces of magnificent sweetness and wonder that would do Marion proud! Also serving savory pies of chicken, steak, and seafood, everything they offer is flavorful and delicious.
This sweet eatery lives up to the quality you have come to expect from the town of Chatham, serving epicurean delights that never fail to please! Known for its hearty lunches that in the summer can best be enjoyed on the wooden picnic tables set up on its lawn, it’s the scrumptious treats they make fresh every day that has us coming back time and time again. Also offering donuts and breads in addition to their pies, cakes, and pastries, if you can’t find what you’re looking for at the Chatham Village Café & Bakery, you’re not really trying!
Can you imagine a coffee shop that doesn’t serve some kind of sweet treats to go along with their main attraction, the simple cup of joe? Well, we can’t either, and Chatham Perk is the perfect spot for those moments when you want something strong, rich, and dark and a little sweet to go along with it! Their pastry display case is chock-full of tasty goodness, including cannolis, cupcakes, and personal sized pies and tarts, and if you miss out on this spot during your Chatham vacation, you’re sorely going to regret it!

The best part of any vacation, in our humble opinion, is being able to eat the foods that make that region great: Mexican food in Arizona, barbecue in Texas, comfort foods in the south, and when on Cape Cod, ANYTHING seafood related! We’re surrounded by water; why would we want to try anything else? Fortunately, unlike those other region’s popular foods, seafood is a healthy treat, and if you’re trying to keep an eye on your waistline, you can still do so while on your unforgettable vacation in Chatham. Here’s some restaurants in the area that offer other healthy choices as well!
If you’ve never heard of the Chatham Bars Inn, then chances are someone you know has! Located at 297 Shore Road, this is a Five Star Cuisine offering luxury beachfront and private dining. You will be awed over the breathtaking panoramic views of Chatham Harbor from a high point where the restaurant sits. CBI serves this amazing mouthwatering lobster roll that tastes so rich and delicious you’ll want to have another! This Inn is a landmark in Chatham and the Cape!
Situated right in the heart of Main Street in Chatham (487 Main Street), The Squire is a local favorite for dining and entertainment. It’s pub-like atmosphere and casual flair make it cozy and comfortable. It’s open until 1:00am! A guaranteed good time will be had there!
When it comes to fresh Japanese cuisine and an authentic atmosphere, you will not be disappointed with Blue Fins! Located at 513 Main Street, you can stroll and shop all of the quaint and specialty stores and gift shops that line both sides of Main Street, work up an appetite and head over to Blue Fins for a unique lunch or dinner. The seafood doesn’t get any fresher than here on Cape Cod. So indulge!
Fresh, healthy, and delicious, The Corner Store is mostly a take-out spot, allowing you to enjoy healthy treats in the comfort of your Chatham vacation rental. Famous for their burritos served in a bowl and made with all fresh ingredients, you never knew a dish that is good for you could taste this good!
Offering locally sourced food and juices, Organic Market allows you to stock your NEVR vacation rental with the makings of healthy meals that taste good, or you can just buy their ready-made sandwiches and salads and take them for a picnic on the beach. Fresh food prepared daily will make your palate smile!
You don’t always have to go to a restaurant that serves exclusively healthy or vegan meals, sometimes you can find the right choices at places like Bistro on Main. Let the family explore the fattier options while you stick to the leaner, yet equally delicious meals! The Seafood Papardelle Diablo is chock full of sweet treats from the sea, and the spicy sauce adds a delicious kick to every bite!
Presentation is as important as taste in this charming eatery located in the downtown area. Offering mostly seafood-based choices, patrons can enjoy a full spectrum of meals that are healthy and delicious. The seared scallop rolls are a local favorite, but you can keep your meal even lighter by choosing a spinach salad and topping it with chicken, shrimp, scallops, or salmon.
Our final Chatham treat is another one where you can choose to behave or choose to be bad. It’s your vacation, and we aren’t going to judge! The good choices found here include a fresh fish of the day meal, tasty salads, and a gluten free pizza—eating healthy doesn’t have to mean you kick pizza to the curb!
