Dunbar Tea Shop, MA

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I am a "mad planner" when it comes to trips, which probably explains why I've made all my lodging reservations for Cape Cod & Nantucket in January (when we're going in June.) Not only have I made lodging reservations already, but I've also planned out every restaurant we're dining in for all six nights.

There's one particular place in Sandwich (Cape Cod) we're going to
have lunch in that I'm especially looking forward to:

It's an adorably quaint tea room (c. 1740) in the heart of Sandwich village, 
surrounded by historic structures such as The Dexter Grist Mill, the Thorton Burgess Museum,
and the Sandwich Glass Museum. The menu is traditionally British, and includes
assorted finger sandwiches, soups, scones, and various dessert trays...

Can it get any lovelier than that?


  1. oh my goodness:). i am so excited for you:). june is not that far away;). you're going to have a lovely trip and i'll be waiting (im)patiently to see your photos:).


  2. Oh, how I wish I was going there with you!!!
    My heart aches for New England....
    My dream destination, now that I've seen Cape Cod, is Christmas Cove on the coast of autumn, of course.....
