Pain d’Avignon in Hyannis, Cape Cod, not just Vaucluse!

April 9th, 2010 by cassels

Close-up of pastries, with friend Today as the temperature hit the mid seventies, we were looking for a late lunch and somewhere to sit outside in the sunshine that was not going to take too long. We had been running a few errands in downtown Hyannis and only had time to grab a quick bite. Helen suggested we might find what we were looking for at the bakery cafe/restaurant Pain d’Avignon. Over the last few months we had heard several very favorable reports from people we know, who had dined at this restaurant, so we wanted to take a look for ourselves. Pain d’ Avignon, as you will probably guess from the name, is a very successful “traditional French bakery”, and for all our years living in the south of France we can certainly vouch for its authenticity.

Welcome back Cookes Seafood in Hyannis

March 12th, 2010 by cassels

Oh how we have missed you during the winter. Your return each year serves the Cape Cod community in two invaluable respects. The first of these is a rather obvious one to all of us who know and love you : you serve the freshest of fish and seafood, cleanly cooked to perfection, and always with a smile. Then there’s the welcome reminder your re-opening brings that spring is just around the corner – thank you for that!

Only ten minutes from our Yarmouth Port inn, CookesDSC_0303  is a popular choice for tourists and Cape Cod residents alike, with it’ relaxed ambience. The dining salon was bustling on the evening last week that we decided to pay our visit. From the expressions on many diners faces, ours included, and the occasional nod of approval, I guess we can only draw one conclusion : it’s business as usual, and we can’t wait to return. Oh and the other thing that spring is on its way. Well we really already knew this after last week’s wonderful sunshine, everyone seemed to be out getting that whiff of ocean air that we find so envigourating.

If you dont already know Cape Cod or believe this year is as good as any to renew your acquaintance, well now is the time to start making those plans. Why not take a look at Mid-Cape along Cape Cod Bay, you will not be disapointed. Who knows, you might just choose to spend some time with us.

John F. Kennedy Memorial in Hyannis

July 15th, 2009 by cassels

Tucked away by the beach across the Cape from us is the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park.

Remembering the nation’s 34th president and a former Hyannis Port local, this contemplative site pays tribute to the man who created “Camelot”.

Many come to this park to gain introspective on John F. Kennedy and the loss of his transforming character. The Memorial features a stone wall set with a medallion of his likeness and a pool with a fountain. Hyannis is about 5 miles across the Peninsula from our Bed and Breakfast in Cape Cod.

The Memorial park also looks out on Lewis Bay and the ocean where John F. Kennedy spent so many happy moments with family and friends.

The Kennedy Memorial is right next to the beach, and can be a cool place to relax after sunbathing or lots of activity. Right next to this park is a Korean War Memorial. These parks are a great place for a shady picnic, or if you are traveling with Grandma & Grandpa, they might enjoy relaxing on park benches under the trees or on the lush lawns in this park in Hyannis.

There is also a JFK Museum in Hyannis, for any of our Bed and Breakfast Cape Cod guests who are history buffs.
