Flying Fish Cafe - Wellfleet, Ma

Flying Fish Cafe - 6.8

There's not much better than a summer stroll up the cape for a weekend. Many folks get right over the Sagamore Bridge and are content that they are "on" the cape. Many others are eager to take one of the ferries out to P-Town and take part of some of the best people watching this side of a stroll down South Beach. Few and far between are the folks who wind up somewhere in the middle. Those willing to make the 2 or so hour drive from Boston will find a some hidden gems including the Flying Fish Cafe. Opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this quaint cafe offers great food (as well as a full bar) at reasonable prices. Did I mention that the food is great? If you're looking for some food and driving up the cape, this place is definitely worth a stop. The Flying Fish Cafe is located at 29 Briar Lane in Wellfleet, MA.

Location: Head through the entrance and turn right. There will be a small seating area in front of you which you'll walk towards. After you finish passing by the counter, the bathroom is diagonally ahead of you and to your left next to a refrigerator. There are a few hand written signs, and while not hidden, it's not right out in the open either.
Grade: 6 out of 10

Accessibility: There is usually a lot of traffic here and walking in and using the facilities shouldn't be too big of an issue.
Grade: 8 out of 10

Number of Stalls: They only have one bathroom with one toilet, that's all. It fits the building and you wouldn't really expect it to have too much more.
Grade: 3 out of 10

Stall Quality: The toilet was a bit short and small. That was really the biggest problem with the bathroom. Otherwise you're in pretty good shape.
Grade: 6 out of 10

Toiler Paper: What kind of toilet paper do you think they have in Cape Cod?? Quilted two-ply of course! Wasn't protected, but there was back up right on top of the tank, so we're good to go!
Grade: 9 out of 10

Cleanliness: This place was pretty tidy. Perhaps folks like using a well designed garbage can?
Grade: 7 out of 10

Scent: In most restrooms, simply opening a window doesn't cut it. At the Flying Fish Cafe, it sure does. Perhaps there is something in the air in Wellfleet? Or perhaps the city air just sucks that much. I have a hunch it's both.
Grade: 8 out of 10

Flush: Small town type of place, small toilet. That's the logic anyway. To be honest, I pretty much had this bathroom pegged before walking into it (and those who I was with can testify to this!). Anyway, wouldn't some large industrial toilet seem a bit out of place? Anyway, back to the flush. It wasn't too bad.
Grade: 6 out of 10

Aesthetics: They put some effort in here. If you are going to put in some, why not put in even more and make it great? It's a small room and the whole place feels relatively quaint. Aside from the decorative garbage can, their bright pink soap is in one of their maple syrup holders.
Grade: 7 out of 10

Extra Credit:
Plunger: +1

The Bottom Line: This place is worth a stop. If you're looking for some grub and need to use the facilities, this place will fill both needs. You'll leave a happy camper.

Effing brilliant. As someone with Crohn's, all I ever think about when I leave wherever I am is "where can I poop if I have to".
I just ran into you accidentally, trying to find the address for the Flying Fish Cafe.
I'm writing a story on my flickr account about a waitress there.
I'll investigate your blog. ILOVEIT.
