Do you love a hot cup of coffee in the morning? How about an iced latte in the afternoon on a hot summer’s day? What about a quick breakfast or snack with your drink before heading to the beach? The Outer Cape has many options if you're searching for any of those things, and even if you're visiting in the off-season, you’ll still have options because most of the top five coffee shops in the area stay open during the winter.

Here are the best coffee shops for you to check out from your vacation rental on the Outer Cape:

1) Wired Puppy in Provincetown

Located on Commercial Street in the heart of downtown Provincetown, Wired Puppy Specialty Coffee & Tea gets a lot of traffic all summer long. Visitors and locals alike make sure they stop by this coffee shop not only for a cup of java but also their specialty drinks, including iced coffees, along with the atmosphere that only central Ptown can provide.

In addition to drinks, Wired Puppy has baked good, smoothies, and oatmeal for breakfast, so if you're out and about on your way to Herring Cove Beach, MacMillan Pier, Race Point Lighthouse, or any other local attraction, you can stop in for a quick bite. Unlike some other businesses in the heart of Provincetown, this shop is open year round, making it an option in any season.

 

2) Savory & the Sweet Escape in Truro

It might seem a little strange to see Savory & the Sweet Escape on this list since it is so much more than just a coffee shop. That's precisely the reason for its inclusion, however, as you can indulge in breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or try some of the best homemade ice cream, cupcakes, pies, and other desserts available anywhere on the Cape.

The coffee at Savory & the Sweet Escape is also memorable, as it is roasted locally by Beanstock Coffee & Espresso. You won't find fresher coffee anywhere, so make sure you head up Route 6 and give them a try the next time you're in the mood for a coffee, and so much more. This business is open 12 months a year, giving you plenty of chances to do so, and is easily accessible from the Cape Cod National Seashore, making it the perfect place to visit before or after a day in the sun.

 

3) Joe Coffee & Café in Provincetown

Even though it's only open between the middle of May and the end of October, Joe's Coffee & Café belongs on this list because people line up outside for a coffee, hot chocolate, cider, or tea at its Commercial Street location almost every day during the summer. Some of the favorites on the menu include Joe's blend, the red eye, the chai latte, and the wide selection of iced coffees and teas.

You can also grab breakfast at Joe's, with bagels, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches prepared every morning. Perhaps the best part about Joe's is that you can buy beans by the pound. So if you fall in love with the coffee, you'll have the chance to take some home with you.

 

4) The Flying Fish in Wellfleet

OK, so The Flying Fish sounds like it should be a seafood restaurant and you'd be forgiven if you're confused by the name. In actuality, this is a cafe that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the summer and from 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM with a limited menu in the winter. Breakfast in the summer has everything you could imagine, including eggs, omelets, pancakes, and breakfast burritos, while the winter menu is made up of baked goods from the in-house Wildflour Bakery and, of course, coffee.

The coffee here comes from Wellfleet's own Beanstock Coffee Company, with cappuccino, espresso, tea, and various iced drinks also available. The cafe is a little off the beaten path, as it sits north of downtown Wellfleet on Briar Lane, but that's a good thing if you're looking for a quiet place to enjoy a cup of your favorite beverage, especially when sitting in their garden seating area.

 

5) PB Boulangerie in Wellfleet

Remaining in Wellfleet, we have PB Boulangerie, a famous bakery that sits right by the trailhead of the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We say it's famous because Outer Cape residents know all about PB Boulangerie and its astounding array of treats and baked goods, and you will too after taking your Cape Cod vacation. PB Boulangerie offers a wide selection of patisserie, viennoiserie, and bread for you to enjoy, and the chef makes everything from scratch right there in the building.

The bakery is open between Wednesday and Sunday from 7 AM until 6 PM, and you can place online orders a couple of days in advance if you need a large number of baked goods. One of the most ordered items at this location is the Bonne Journee, which is a breakfast made up of a cup of coffee and a croissant. You can enjoy this simple, yet delicious, meal outside the venue in front of a roaring fire first thing in the morning, creating the perfect start to your day.

 

Head for Coffee in the Morning

You might not want to head out for coffee or breakfast every morning during your vacation, but it’s nice to know that you’ve got some great options on the Outer Cape. You really can't go wrong with any of these cafes because their coffee is excellent and the atmosphere in each business epitomizes everything that makes Cape Cod an exceptional place to visit.
