After taking a decided turn for the worse when they lost their head chef two years ago, I'm happy to say we had a fabulous lunch there last weekend. Always a past favorite, the simple, yet quality preparation and ingredients have returned. We shared a simple salad of baby greens, danish blue crumble, toasted hazelnuts and house made vinaigrette. It was served with fabulous warn Iggy's french crusty rolls and creamery butter. My DW had a simple Shrimp Scampi. Great garlicky flavors with a touch of buttery wine and lemon on perfectly al dente pasta. Described on the menu as including "Plum tomatoes, leeks, garlic, capers, fresh herbs (a bargain at $15), and I loved my cioppino which had a generous amount of plump mussels,shrimp, Wellfleet littlenecks, tender local sea scallops, and a small piece of cod all in a tasty tomato and fennel broth. Incredible. One of my favorite lunch dishes anywhere on Cape and another relative bargain for only $17. (Another rant...I'm so sick and tired of the Hyannis and surrounding scene where restaurants act like they are doing you a favor with $20 fried shrimp dinners, $14 hamburgers, and $15 miniscule pizzas).

This is the type of fine dining lunch that I crave now and again and I'm so glad it's available in this spot again. The Cape has so few of these high value, great experience options. The small renovation, a bump out really, suits the room very well, and didn't negatively affect the coziness of the small, yet elegant space. Highly recommend.
