Want a taste of French cafe life while on the Cape? Last night we had the distinct pleasure of dining at the Pain D’Avignon cafe in Hyannis. They had invited us to be their guests to experience the new dinner menu knowing that we have an upscale and romantic cape cod bed and breakfast.
We recommend dining to our rather discriminating guests all the time, assuring our big city guests from Boston, Providence, and New York that they will likely not be disappointed in their dining experiences here on the cape. For six years we have dined around the Cape, as well as collecting daily reports from our guests, so that our recommended restaurant list we send people prior to their stay is exciting. We love to try new restaurants for not only our personal enjoyment but also to be well educated when our guests ask us where to dine.
The cafe is actually an addition off of the main bakery on a commercial side street in Hyannis very near to the rotary and airport. The drive up appeal is no indication of what you will find inside since the bakery is located in a very busy and commercial section of the city. Once inside the experience takes on a whole new meaning. The decor is very french, simple yet elegant and live, very jazzy, music completed the atmosphere.
They make 9,000 to 13,000 pounds of bread a week as a commercial bakery using the finest ingredients to be found in the US. They gave us a complete tour of the facility and we found it to be fascinating and exciting. They are one of the largest individual employers on the Cape and their products are found in the finest resorts, restaurants, and hotels on and off the Cape.
Our highest regards to Pain D’Avignon for a job and business well done. Highly recommended.
