During my research for places to eat in Provincetown, I came across Relish and immediately added it to the custom Google Map I created for our trip. On our Saturday morning stroll we happened to walk by Relish, and although we had just eaten a quick breakfast at the Brass Key, peering through the front windows made me already crave lunch!
There are few meals that I consistently adore more than a really good sandwich at a shop filled with character & charm. If I was presented with the choice of a nice dinner out (apps & desserts, included!) or a delicious sandwich in a cute cafe, I would take the sandwich and the cafe anytime, no questions asked.
The moment we walked into the cheerful, light-filled restaurant in the quieter West End of Provincetown, I knew we’d be back at least one more time before we left the Cape. In fact, I’m pretty sure we had both rearranged our lunch plans for the following day so we could return, long before we even placed our order. Between the sandwich menu (pictured below) and the multitude of sweets to choose from, we were both in heaven.
On Saturday, Michael had the Roast Beef and in typical ‘Meredith’ fashion, I went with the T.B.M (Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella, Balsamic) on ciabatta. Amazing! We made sure to return the following day to pick up lunch on our way out of town for a picnic on Marconi Beach in Wellfleet. I loved my T.B.M so much that I ordered it again, while Michael went with the Chicken Salad. Amazing, again! On this second trip we decided to treat ourselves to some sweets – I chose a butter pecan cookie and Michael decided on a red velvet cupcake and a butterscotch haystack. They were the perfect snacks for the drive back up to Maine, and inspired us to plan our next trip to Provincetown… pretty much just so we can go back to Relish!
