Whether you’re searching for fresh pastries for breakfast or a loaf of bread to take back to your vacation rental, you’ll find numerous bakeries throughout Cape Cod.

In Dennis alone, there are bakeries in every part of town; it doesn't matter if you’re staying in Dennis Village, Dennis Port, or East Dennis, there’s always a place for baked goods nearby.

The best thing about these venues is that they’re local, so you won’t find the same offerings anywhere else in the country.

Here’s a look at the top five bakeries to visit on your vacation to Dennis, MA.

1) Woolfie’s Bakery

Woolfie’s Bakery is a fixture in Dennis Port, having first opened its doors over 50 years ago. The venue remains true to its roots and is known for its support of the Dennis and Harwich Police Departments, Dennis Fire, and the Cape and Island K9 Relief Fund.

As for the food, Woolfie’s offers fresh pastries and muffins all morning long and also serves bagels, sandwiches, and coffee. They’re open from 7:00 AM until noon every day of the week between Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend before closing for the season.

Reaching Woolfie’s Bakery is incredibly simple, as the restaurant sits on Lower County Road in the heart of Dennis Port. Remember, however, that the building looks like a house. Hence, it’s easy to miss, and the parking is minimal. You can park down the street at the Southside Cantina if you don’t find parking outside.

2) Underground Bakery

In the heart of Dennis Village, right beside The Mercantile, is Underground Bakery, a venue that gets its name from its placement in the basement of Cape Cod Picture Framing. However, don’t let the below-ground location fool you, as Underground Bakery has some of the best baked goods anywhere on the Cape.

Everything available at Underground Bakery is baked on-site, including the fresh bread, muffins, and cupcakes that you can take back to your vacation rental with you. In addition, the bakery has a selection of wraps and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, including some vegan options.

If you’re into a slightly large meal, you can grab a soup, salad, or bowl of ramen, and don’t forget about the organic, fair-trade coffee from Indigo Coffees that they serve.

Overall, Underground Bakery is accessible, convenient, and delicious, making it a must-visit during your vacation on the Cape.

3) Buckies Biscotti & Bakery Cafe

Back to Dennis Port we go for Buckies Biscotti & Bakery Cafe, which enjoys a central location on Main Street. Buckies has a lot to offer on its bakery menu, including pastries, cookies, cakes, dessert trays, pies, and, of course, biscotti. The biscotti is famous on Cape Cod and comes in various flavors, so you can choose a few that you want to try.

Beyond the bakery, Buckies has a breakfast menu featuring bagels, English muffins, granola, wraps, and sandwiches. You can have lunch there, too, as they serve paninis, sandwiches, and salads.

Buckies is open from 7:00 AM until 3:00 PM Thursday through Monday and 7:00 AM until noon on Tuesday and Wednesday, giving you plenty of opportunities to check them out.

4) The Otherside Pizza and Pastries

Over in East Dennis, Bridge Street is home to a couple of restaurants with the same owners. The Marshside serves seafood dishes and offers water views, while The Otherside is a bakery and pizzeria.

The bakery at The Otherside has a little bit of everything, as they make muffins, pastries, cupcakes, and quiche from scratch. You can also grab a sandwich for lunch if you’re a little more hungry. The bonus when visiting The Otherside is that you can grab a pizza and a beer, as well, which is something that other bakeries on this list can’t match.

5) Village Coffee Shop

Another conveniently positioned bakery in Dennis Village is the Village Coffee Shop, which sits right beside Dennis Public Market on Main Street. This shop is tiny, but it’s also incredibly popular. In fact, there’s often a line in the morning full of people looking to get their hands on some freshly-baked donuts.

In addition to the donuts, which you must try, the shop offers breakfast sandwiches, bagels, muffins, pastries, and coffee, giving you all kinds of options in the morning. The Village Coffee Shop is open daily between 6:30 AM and noon, and it closes during the week in the offseason. You’ll want to stop by this small bakery if you’re a donut lover.

Making the Most of Your Time in Dennis

Booking a vacation rental in Dennis puts you in the heart of much of what the Cape has to offer, as you’ll have access to beaches, restaurants, bike trails, and hiking areas. You’ll also be close to numerous high-end bakeries, no matter which part of town you’re spending your time.

Give a couple of these bakeries a try during your vacation because you won’t find flavors like these anywhere else on the East Coast.
