When we are touring and travelling we like to do a quick lunch. We were near here at lunch time and decided to stop. Great choice. We both had BLT's and fries. excellent and filling. Nothing fancy but a great place to eat.

If you're looking for authentic seafood on your way to Cape Cod, then we have a treat for you ... But be prepared to step into a time warp. Canal Cafe is no more than 400 square feet of a gritty seaside bar with a few tables, that is straight out of the 1960s. Mostly locals inhabit the bar stools as well as the high tops. Don't be put off by the 35 minute wait for your meal or the occasional vulgarity from the locals. Instead focus on some of the freshest, most amazing seafood on the entire Cape. My boyfriend had the paella: the little neck clams were decent, but the scallops were broiled to perfection. They truly tasted like they were just caught in the back of the restaurant and brought in. They were exquisite. The oversized shrimp were just as tasty, and the whole meal was surrounded in a rice and pepper contraption that made it an incredibly hearty meal. I had the Captain's club: fried cod, bacon and cheese, with lettuce and tomato. The cod was fantastic - fresh and lightly breaded. The bacon was cooked perfectly (crispy). In my opinion the cheese didn't add much and in fact detracted from the cod. But other than that, the sandwich was delicious. The fries that came with the meal were uneventful. At a price of $36 (tip included), it was well worth the trip!

Local hole in the wall, let Whitney and the Canal Cafe start or end your trip to Cape Cod. The fried fish sandwich was Gastro-Delish...don't ask for the Crazy Ivan but the Cape Cod Ivan! Fried cod, rye bread, coleslaw and russian dressing for $9 bucks! Don't let the size or outside decor scare you...its old school Cape Cod, great meal and atmosphere...get out traffic and Enjoy!

Always a warm friendly group here , year round. Great Motorcycle Stop! Small and comfortable , very old fashioned but in great shape, clean and very good service even when it is busy!
Great selection of food , always made fresh and served promptly.
Lots of history to this cafe, Predominately a local group but visitors always welcomed!
Parking is at premium , but across the side street is plenty.
