The best breakfast biscuit ever. Worth the wait. Order online to avoid the crowds.

Tandem has the best coffee and pastries around. This is a must visit place, but go early, there are often lines especially on the weekend). Visitors are known to buy slices of pie for breakfast because this place is THAT good.

A PWM institution. Be sure to get their loaded biscuit. And breakfast sandwich for good measure!

The breakfast sandwiches are phenomenal! Pro tip - order ahead online to avoid the wait. If you don't order ahead, don't be dissuaded by the line - it moves extremely fast!

A local favorite and featured on a number of major network news segments. Too many favorites to list. Online ordering is the way to go and do order early.

Bakery
“Great little market to get some local organic produce, pre-made items, and anything to make a meal at home. Great breads, too.”
  • 46 locals recommend
Bar
“Excellent cocktails, the best in town. Really interesting flavor profiles and talented mixologists. A very hip, big city vibe with a disco ball and funky mural. Also referred to as "The Bearded Lady's Jewel Box" or just "Bearded Lady."”

Breakfast Spot
“Hearty Southern fare dominates a menu that also runs to comfort-food favorites from other regions. There is a wait to eat here, it's a local favorite!”
  • 75 locals recommend
Seafood Restaurant
“Brown butter lobstah roll, fried oyster buns, oysters (from Maine), tuna crudo, fish sandwich, rosé. Don't wait 3 hours. Go at an odd time of day, put your name in and grab a snack or fries from Duck Fat while you wait.”
  • 126 locals recommend
Japanese Restaurant
“Delicious ramen. And steamed buns. They've also nailed the Brussel sprout craze. Seating is tight so it would be tougher for groups, but as of the writing of this review they're doing a lot of takeout so that could be a good option.”
