The Perfect Day in Brewster
Brewster features a full palette of Cape landscapes, including spectacular Nickerson State Park and the luminous tidal flats and coastal inlet beaches that attract artists, beach lovers, fishermen, and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.
At the Brewster Coffee Shop (508-896-8224), enjoy a delicious breakfast at a relaxed diner-style counter, or savor the morning sun at outdoor picnic tables. Eat hearty, because at nearby Nickerson State Park (508-896-3491), there are more than 2,000 acres to explore. The walking, biking, and jogging trails and picturesque kettle ponds, picnic spots, and sandy beaches can keep visitors busy for an entire morning.
Before you hit the trail or head for the beach, stop by JT’s Seafood (508-896-3355) for lunch. While it may look like an unpretentious seaside eatery, one bite of the golden fried clams or the fresh lobster salad here will tell you this is a hot dining spot. After refueling, take advantage of Brewster’s bonanza of beaches. Paine’s Creek Beach stands out for magnificent sunsets. When the tide goes out, the tidal flats reveal a fascinating hidden world inhabited by small sea creatures much loved by children or explorers of any age.
For an evening of fine dining with a touch of old Cape Cod, head to The Bramble Inn (508-896-7644). The cuisine here has won many awards since opening 30 years ago, and with a seasonally changing menu, there is always something new to try. Finish the night with some fun across town at the Cape Rep Theatre (508-896-1888). The venue has several stages, including an open-air theatre for shows under the stars and an intimate 140-seat indoor theater.
