It's Fall and along Route 6a on Cape Cod one can experience some of the best memories by exploring the quaint little shops, and enjoying the ever changing scenes of nature with a picnic lunch or breakfast at a favorite or newly found scenic locations. ( and there are lots). One of my new found favorites is The Cafe Chew just off of Route 6a in Sandwich on Merchants Row just behind the Sandwich Post Office. Upon entering this eclectic cafe,I was welcomed by smell of fresh brewed coffee and their baked goods carefully placed on pedetsals beckoned me to come closer and perhaps partake of their deliciousness. I knew that I had made a good choice and my only difficulty was deciding on just want to taste and devour. Their breakfast as well as their lunch menus offer a wide variety of choices all prepared with careful detail to flavors and presentation. After much dilberation I decided on the "Italian Breakfast Sandwich" which was two fried eggs topped with carmelized onion, fire-roasted red pepper puree and fresh mozzarella on fresh telera roll served with herb and onion home fries. I placed my order and carefully decided on where to sit as I awaited delivery of what was to be the best breakfast sandwich on Cape Cod. The bread was so soft and fresh that it almost melted in my mouth and the combination of onions, peppers and mozzarella was savory and good. I have alway said that a good cup of coffee can make or break a dining experience and their coffee was the best that I have tasted. It seems that the owners Bob King and Tobin Wirt surely do know how to please a weary traveler and this girl has found her go to spot to return to. My friend who usually orders her usual scrambled eggs decided to try the the "French Breakfast Sandwich" which included two scrambled eggs with Brie Cheese, fresh spinach and slice tomatoes served on a ciabatta roll with herb and onion home fries. She was speachless for a few seconds as she savored the blend of the carefully selected flavors and then announced this was the best sandwich that she had ever eaten. I have driven past this cafe several times but was always put off by the large crowd, often tourists who had seen the cafe on television shows like Chronicle and wanted to see if they were as good as they looked on television. One trip inside will keep you returning and wanting more. My only regret is that it has taken me so long to try out the Cafe Chew because last year I tried their "Pilgrim Sandwich" at the Fox's Zip Trip in Sandwich and was impressed by the their detail in presantion and ingredients with roasted turkey, sage dressing, cranberry mayonaise and lettuce on freshly baked cranberry-pecan bread. Thanks Cafe Chew you really know how to please your customers. My only wish is that you were closer to me.Thanks!!!!
