A guide to where to eat in Brewster

Brewster Coffee Shop
Address: 2149 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631
Phone: 508-896-8224
A small family-run diner with a solid breakfast menu (breakfast served all-day). This is a no-frills breakfast joint that will leave you with a full belly without emptying your wallet. Menu includes breakfast items such as cranberry pancakes, eggs benedict, waffles, french toast, home fries, and fresh-baked muffins. Vegetarian friendly. A good stop for breakfast, lunch or a weekend brunch. Unlike many diners, they offer espresso drinks in addition to regular coffee. Seating is available inside and out, a good thing when it gets busy, which it does.

Brewster Fish House
Address: 2208 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631
Phone: 508-896-7867
The Brewster Fish House is an upscale Zagat-rated seafood restaurant located in a cottage on Brewster's Main Street. This is a great spot for couples or adult gatherings. Although children's meals are available upon request, they don't have a kids' menu or high chairs, a tip-off that it might be better to leave the kids at home. The restaurant serves fresh, local seafood with simple New England basics like clam chowder and pan-seared scallops to more inspired dishes like baby octopus with fried brioche, chorizo, and fava beans. Be sure to try one of their prosecco cocktails or fresh-baked desserts. The Brewster Fish House is very popular with locals and visitors alike, and they don't take reservations, so get there early or be prepared for a wait, especially in the summer months.

Cobies Restaurant
Address:: 3260 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631
Phone: 508-896-7021
Cobies is a family-friendly clam shack that has been operating since 1948. You'll find all the summer seafood shack favorites like fried clams, lobster rolls, burgers, onion rings, and ice cream, to more eclectic offerings such as panini sandwiches and clam pie. There are plenty of picnic tables with umbrellas for shade on the patio, or place your order to go and head to one of the nearby beaches. You can even ride your bike to Cobies on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and it is conveniently located next to Nickerson State Park.

Guapo's Tortilla Shack V
Address: 239 Underpass Road, Brewster, MA 02631
Phone: 508-896-3338
This laid-back Mexican restaurant features moderately priced (for Cape Cod) food with a kids' menu. There are vegetarian and vegan menu options, a gluten-free menu. The restaurant serves margarita type alcoholic drinks. Guapo's is conveniently located just off the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and is great place to kick back with a fish taco at an outdoor picnic table. Place your order at the counter inside the shack and wait for them to call when your food is ready (alcoholic drinks can be ordered separately at the outside counter). There is some seating inside the shack, but the best option is to grab an outside table (it can get busy during high season). There is a large blackboard with chalk to keep the kids busy when they finish their quesadillas and burgers. Guapos restaurant has opened a newer location in Orleans in a larger space to accomodate more indoor seating. So if you are hankering for tacos or burritos but wish to sit indoors, try the Orleans Cape Cod location.

JT’s Seafood Restaurant
Address: 2689 Main Street, Brewster, MA 02631
Phone: 508-896-3355
JTs is somewhere between a clam shack and a restaurant. It's casual and family-friendly, there is a kids menu featuring the usual mac & cheese type options. The restaurants features indoor tables and outdoor picnic table seating. It has the feel of a summer clam shack (order your food at the counter and grab a table), but also serves beer and wine and offers grilled, baked, and steamed seafood options in addition to the fried seafood found in most casual restaurants on the Cape. And as most vacationers know, it can be hard to get your veggies when traveling, so their offerings of steamed broccoli and fresh salads are appreciated. Of note, in addition to the more common cold lobster roll, they offer a hot lobster roll (chunks of steamed lobster meat in a toasted roll with drawn butter, served warm), which is a lazy way of eating a steamed shells to crack! You can even order BBQ Ribs if you need a break from seafood altogether. JT's offers an array of frozen desserts (ice cream, soft-serve, sorbet, frozen yogurt, etc.). This is a good place to stop for a quick dinner on the way back from the beach.
