Discovering Dennis: Shopping, Eating & Atmosphere

The heart of Dennis Village is a well-known cultural center with museums and theater, but it is only recently that it has become a great shopping destination, as new and exciting shops and eateries have opened along this adorable part of Route 6A.

First Stop: Underground Bakery
Everyone knows you must fuel up for a day of shopping if you are going to go the distance. Fortunately Underground Bakery has you covered. Order up a cup of coffee or a juice to go along with your breakfast – lighter, vegan and more substantial options are available.


CQ Recommends: try the Fiesta Wrap for a super yummy, well-balanced and shopping ready meal. And grab a loaf of bread for later….

Next: Deep Blue
Head from Underground Bakery over to Deep Blue, which will be a feast for your eyes. The shop carries   unique gifts and jewelry as well both new and vintage home goods. The owners Amy and Bridget also bring their own flare and products into the shop from high quality refinished furniture to upholstery fabric and greeting cards.







CQ Recommends: Spend some time reading all of the “punny” cards designed by Amy, and try not smiling.

Next: Scout
Take a right onto Main Street and go to the newly opened Scout, a charming little shop perfect for Francophiles and to find everything you didn’t know you needed. Owner Melissa Cox carefully selects everything in the shop to create a memorable shopping experience, and to bring joy to her customers.


CQ Recommends: Just when you think you are ready to check out, take one more loop around the store to make sure you’ve seen everything – you don’t want to miss any of the cuteness!


Next: GoodFellas Gelateria

There’s too much sweetness in this area to resist, so we think it is the perfect day to have a little treat mid-shopping. Gelato is the most fashionable dessert out there, and fortunate for you fashionistas GoodFellas Gelataria recently opened on in Dennis Village offering 24 flavors and espresso, cappuccino and lattes.

CQ Recommends: A good pistachio is the mark of a great gelateria, and this one does not disappoint.   

Next: Black Eel Outfitters

Keep heading West on Main Street until you get to Black Eel Outfitters where you will find well-known brands such as Prana, Columbia, Toad & Co., and Tommy Bahama, as well as everything you need for fishing, boating or going to the beach. This is where men and women (and even kids) can go to find both style and comfort from maxi dresses, flowy tops and bathing suits for her, and shorts, t-shirts and casual sneakers for him.


CQ Recommends: Check out Black Eel’s own branded clothing line that owners John and Anna Hayden introduced into the store this year – both cute and comfy styles in tees and sweatshirts

Last Stop: Relax at home or at Harvest

Who wants to cook after such hard work!? Instead grab some wine and cheese (to go with your loaf of bread) for home at the newly opened Sapori d’Italia, or stick around for local live music and a cocktail at Harvest Gallery & Wine Bar.
