UPPER CAPE • The Naked Oyster - 410 Main St, Hyannis - This little spot is a Mackenzie & Co fave! We love their oysters (from the bistro's own farm) and their pale pink tini's crafted with Oysterville Vodka ♡
LOWER CAPE • The Beachcomber - 1120 Cahoon Hollow Rd, Wellfleet - What was once a lifesaving station in 1897, this restaurant & bar in the dunes is arguably one of Cape's most famous go-to's. Take in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean as you sip on a Goombay Smash...did we mention the oysters are awesome, too?
