Restaurants come and go but Cafe Heaven, conveniently situated on Commercial Street in Provincetown is a favorite that has stood the test of time. However, after one of the owners tragically died this spring I didn’t know quite what to expect when we visited. I’ll admit I was sad to walk in and not be immediately greeted by Alan, but the restaurant in every other way is as good as ever thanks to Patrick who runs the kitchen and the dedicated staff.
Cafe Heaven is probably best known for their breakfast, which is consistently excellent. The menu includes eggs benedict, omelettes, granola, yogurt etc. along with a few French Toast and pancake options always served fresh maple syrup.
On this visit two specials caught our eyes, the first was a stack of raspberry and pecan pancakes and the “scramble special” which changes regularly but on this day consisted of tomato and bacon, served with breakfast potatoes and toast.
The stack of pancakes were served warm and the maple syrup was soaked up by the large, fruit and nut filled pancake. By contrast, the scramble special of the day was much more savory. Both were excellent and I would most definitely recommend should you see them on the menu when you visit. However, over the years I’ve learned that everything on their breakfast menu is delicious and worth the calories so check out Cafe Heaven on your next visit to Provincetown.
Cafe Heaven is open daily (in season) from 8AM – 2PM for breakfast and lunch and from 6PM-10PM for dinner.
