Provincetown on a Budget


We know Provincetown can be an expensive place to visit, the busy season is quite short and businesses have to make a great percentage of their income during that short busy season to survive.  We have a lot of great restaurants and you will want to try many of them while you are here.  How do you get to visit our great restaurants while keeping your food budget under control?  I’ll play Suze Orman, here are some helpful hints.
On a few days make lunch your big meal of the day.  A perfect day to do that is Sunday and have the brunch at Fanizzi’s at 598 Commercial Street.  Fanizzi’s is on the water in the East end, brunch is from 10am to 2pm.  Did I mention it’s ‘All You Can Eat’?  for $14.95?  You won’t find many deals like this.  Brunch includes French Toast, Scrambled Eggs, Corn Beef Hash, Breakfast Burritos, Steamed Mussels, Eggs Benedict, Sausage, Bacon. . .  I could go on, but check out their web site for their brunch menu.

Big Daddy Chicken Tacos
Another great place for a meal is the food court at the Aquarium Mall at 207 Commercial Street.  A number of different options are available and behind the building is the Aqua Bar where you may eat your food and enjoy a gorgeous outdoor view of the Provincetown Harbor and Cape Cod Bay.  One of my favorites is Big Daddy Burritos.  The food is incredibly fresh, the staff is cute and friendly and it’s a great deal.  I get a saucy chicken burrito with creamy salsa verde and the hot mamma sauce a couple of times a week.  It’s $8.51 including tax so plan on $10 with a tip for lunch or dinner and enjoy that incredible view and the ocean air.


Aqua Bar
Another great option at the Aquarium Mall is Connie’s Bakery.  Great sandwiches made fresh to order.  I had their brown bag lunch which is a freshly made sandwich, cole slaw and a cookie for $11.  The Black Forrest Ham sandwich on herbed focaccia bread was a delish.  Again, eat outdoors at the Aqua Bar and you have a great meal with a view.
Early bird specials aren’t just for your grandma in Florida.  For example, get your order in to the kitchen by 7pm at the Seafood Grille (386 Commercial St) and have a three course meal for $14.  Options include Cape Cod Fish & Chips, Broiled Cod with Lobster Newburgh Sauce and Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken.  Start with clam chowder or a salad and end your dinner with the dessert of the day.
There’s something for everyone and every budget in Provincetown, you just need to know where to look.  When you stay at The Somerset House Inn the staff are always willing to help you with suggestions.  We have one room left for the Labor Day weekend and then it’s fall in Provincetown, the perfect time to visit with warm days and cool evenings.  See you soon.
