What can feel more pleasurable than going out to breakfast with family and friends on a warm summer morning? I always take great joy in someone else making the coffee, cooking the eggs, clearing the table – ah, the absolute luxury of it and at not too high a price.
One of my favorite places on the Cape to grab a quick, delicious breakfast is Moonakis Cafe, a small, roadside diner/slice of heaven in East Falmouth. The staff is swift and gracious, the food is excellent, and the menu goes beyond the standard eggs and bacon fare. My favorites are the incredible cranberry walnut pancakes, chicken apple sausage with eggs and toast, their superb corned beef hash, and tasty homemade granola that I like to grab to go.
Moonakis, a favorite among locals, is opened all year round (thank god), but during this time of year it’s rather packed. Be sure to anticipate a longish wait, but, don’t worry, it’s well worth it.
