MONUMENT BEACH
AMENITIES

GROCERIES

Market Basket, Sandwich
The closest super market is the new Market Basket in Sandwich.  You access it by turning right at the Sagamore Bridge then turning left before getting onto Route 6 towards Hyannis. Beware of traffic, especially on Fridays and Sundays!

Gray Gables Market
Re-vised in 2015, this market is convenient and fairly well stocked, and has the huge advantage of proximity to the house, especially with traffic on the rest of the Cape. Sundries, Dunkin Donuts, deli and beer & wine. Turn left on Shore Rd., 1 mile down on the right.


Cumberland Farms
Sundries can be found at Cumberland Farms in Monument Beach, an easy walk from the house. Turn right on Shore Rd. and go mi. into Monument Beach. Can't miss it.


Larry's Market - small market located in Pocasset has a reasonable selection of food items.



"WHISTLE STOP" HOMEMADE ICE CREAM

Some of the best ice cream on the Cape is served right here in MB, next door to Cumberland Farms. If you love chocolate, you'll die for "Death by Chocolate!"



LOBSTER TRAP RESTAURANT AND FISH MARKET

This is on Shore Rd. about mi. before you made the sharp right hand turn into Evergreen Hill Rd. To get there from here, go left as you leave the Point and the Lobster Trap is about mi. down on the left. Or, if you're adventurous, and the tide is favorable, canoe down Back River to the Lobster Trap docks (between the two bridges.) They will boil lobsters for pick-up, and have wonderful fresh fish available at their adjacent retail fish market. Their fried clams are pretty tasty, too!


BREAKFAST

There are 2 good breakfast places. The Corner Cafe in Pocasset can be reached by going through Monument Peach and following Shore Road about 3 or 4 miles to the intersection in Pocasset.  The restaurant is on the left.  It can also be reached by kayak (about 1/2 hour paddle from the house).  Follow the shoreline past Monument Beach, behind Toby Island, the follow the jettee into Pocasset Harbor.  You can park the kayaks next to the bridge and walk a few hundred yards to the cafe.

Hollyberries is just past the Lobster Trap heading towards the Bourne bridge.

The Beach Street Bakery in Monument Beach is also within walking distance from the house.


You'll find brochures, menus, restaurant suggestions, and guides to the latest Cape attractions in the top drawer of the front hall chest or tacked to the bulletin board.
