Be sure to stop by Cape Cod Coffee’s new café here in the neighborhood during their Grand Opening celebration this Saturday (happening in conjunction with our June Sidewalk Festival!). The event will feature special deals, door prizes, giveaways and lots of Coffee 😉
You may be familiar with Cape Cod Coffee from their roasting facility, located on route 130 here in Mashpee. Their quality beans, roasted right here on Cape Cod, certainly set their coffee apart from any other options in the region. Which is why we are so excited about their brand new (and very first) coffee shop here in the neighborhood. Their menu features an array of options, from classic lattes, to fresh cold brew; and their inviting café offers seating and complimentary wifi. Cape Cod Coffee is committed to purchasing only top quality beans from farms dedicated to preserving the environment and worker’s rights and they roast their coffee in small batches for superior flavor control. Co-owners, Pam and Jan Aggerbeck, are passionate about “great coffee, vibrant communities and environmental stewardship” which they have certainly demonstrated in their new coffee shop.
Our June #SidewalkFestival is happening this Saturday! Join us for a fun day filled with live music, complimentary face painting, sidewalk chalk galore, and a sidewalk sale throughout the neighborhood. The fest begins at noon and runs through 8pm. Various activities will be taking place throughout Mashpee Commons; in order to help you better plan your day, we’ve included a breakdown of the times/locations below:
