And just like that, it feels like fall. Actually, it’s been spectacular. I admit it, I’m not a heat girl. 75 and sunny is perfect for me. We’ve had a slightly cooler than usual summer. I haven’t even turned on my a/c. You won’t hear me complaining although my tomato plants are not as psyched that it has rarely crept up into the 80s this season.
On these slightly chilly late August/September mornings (sweater, please!), a trip for a warm cuppa is first on my list. A close second is a tasty little baked good. Provincetown doesn’t disappoint on either count. I’m sure everyone has their favorite spot. People are picky about these things, but there are a few of the places that I keep in my regular morning rotation.
For coffee, I hit up either Wired Puppy, Joe’s or Kohi (I wrote about each of them back in March). For tea, my new favorite is The Captain’s Daughters, located on Commercial Street and just opened this season. I’m still dreaming about the last cup of tea I had in there that, of course, I can’t remember the name. It was herby, earthy, not too heavy or bitter. Couldn’t get enough.
Once I’ve got my hot beverage, the next stop on the hunt is for some kind of baked good. Joe’s actually has a nice selection, so that has the added benefit of being a one-stop shop. If not Joe’s then I go to one of two places: Happy Camper or the Provincetown Portuguese Bakery. Happy Camper when it’s a donut morning (love those!). Portuguese Bakery when I need malassada (best description I have heard for this Portuguese version of fried dough: sugar covered clouds) or croissants. The breakfast sandwich with linguica is also spectacular.
Can’t wait till tomorrow morning!
