Food in Orleans, MA - report

I wanted to thank everyone for the good advice. We had a delicious 3 days in Orleans. Our first stop was for lunch at the Brewster Fish House. The caesar salad and clam chowder were both very good -- the chowder was not overly thick. My cioppino was the highlight - the seafood tasted very fresh and the broth was perfect on the rainy day. My husband's seared scallops with a port sauce were less good -- the sauce was too sweet.

Dinner that night at Abba was just wonderful. The tuna was perfect. The lobster pad thai was quite good as well.

Next day we had breakfast at the Cottage Street Bakery, which had really wonderful multi-grain bread and good pastries. Lunch (clam strip rolls, clam chowder, broccoli and corn on cob) at JT's was perfectly fine. We had clam strip rolls and lobster rolls the next day at Cooke's, which to our surprise we actually liked more than JT's.

All this, plus a few trips to the Hot Chocolate Sparrow and the wedding events, and we had a very delicious weekend. Thanks again for all the tips.
