    Main Street Hyannis in the summer has always meant a good time, with many restaurants serving great cuisine.

    Over the past few years, the city has allowed establishments to expand their dining rooms and bars to the sidewalk so the customers can enjoy the warm summer months while sipping their favorite cocktail and eating whatever makes their mouth water.

    If you haven’t been to Main Street this summer, you haven’t seen the new innovative design that Colombo’s Cafe and Pastries has brought to the Hyannis scene. Dave Colombo, owner of Colombo’s as well as the Roadhouse Cafe, Black Cat Tavern and Shack, decided over the winter to transform his awning covered outdoor eating space into a hip, city-style open-air lounge.

    Removing the awning and adding a solid structure, Colombo’s now is a fully enclosed beautiful onyx bar that is accompanied by new banquettes and high-top tables.

    This addition not only has added a new sheik style to the already one-of-a-kind Colombo’s, but also has brought the hustle and bustle of a busy summer Cape Cod street to the patron without having to leaving the restaurant.

    The windows and doors that Colombo added to his new addition slide completely open to give you the feel of sitting street side. It’s what you experience on Newbury Street in Boston or on the streets of New York City.

     

    columbos 2Colombo’s specializes in Italian food and is where you can get probably the best  gelato on the Cape at all hours, and especially to cap off lunch or dinner.

    It is creativity like this that allows foodies like me to continue to find reason after reason to get out of the house for a superb meal on Cape Cod.

     

    Is there a spot you know of that bucks the trends?  Share your experiences with me!  I am always looking for another great meal surrounded by creativity and originality.

    Reach out to me and maybe we can enjoy some of these great spots together
