Bonatt's Bakery and Restaurant
In 1941, AJ and Rose Bonatt started baking the sweets that would delight the tongues of Harwich Port for generations to come. Whether serving Communion breakfast for Holy Trinity students or perfecting the recipe for their famous meltaway—a horseshoe-shaped pastry kissed with a light touch of icing—the pair won over hearts and mouths with goodies baked using natural, locally sourced ingredients. Originally open only during the summer months, the restaurant now serves the community year-round under the guidance of Alice Bonatt. In addition to their desserts—which include cakes, cupcakes, pies, and more—the eatery slings diner-style bites for breakfast and lunch. Pancakes and french toast help sweet teeth shake off morning grogginess, and lobster salad rolls and bacon cheeseburgers give bodies the strength they need to discover the fish-stick reef hidden at the bottom of Cape Cod.
