While we may like to remind tourists that Sandwich, MA is a history and quaint Cape Cod town and NOT something that can be ordered on rye, there is one time every year we embrace the synonymous term: Sandwich Fest!
Once a year, people from all over (including the locals) travel far and wide to find the answer to the age-old question: Who has the best sandwich in Sandwich?
With some of the best restaurants on the Cape taking part, the competition is stiff. We're up against favorites like the British Beer Company, Cafe Chew, and Momo's, but here's to hoping we can bring the trophy back this year and win those bragging rights for the whole year.
Even if you're not a sandwich person, there's plenty of non-edible fun for the whole family to enjoy; children's activities, live musical performances, local artists and craftsmen, a family sing-along, and even a costume parade!
We'll be back to report on all the delicious festivities next week, but in the meantime, you can check out Sandwich Fest's official website or check out some of our menus here if you feel like getting a preview of the future Sandwich Fest champions.
And don't forget to stop by! The tasty celebration takes place on SATURDAY, JUNE 30 2012 from 10AM - 4PM in Sandwich Village (Jarves & Main Streets).
See you there!
This spring the Belfry Inne & Bistro will be featuring a Valentine special the entire month of February! The package called ‘Be My Valentine Anytime During February’ is a fantastic way to show that special someone in your life how much you care about them. The package includes a three course dinner for two, a dozen roses presented in the bedroom and chocolate strawberries & a glass of champagne upon arrival. Each morning guests can wake up to a fresh gourmet breakfast plated just for them.
Romantic walks on the beach are literally just around the corner when you stay at the Belfry Inn in Sandwich, MA. Special additions like a full body message for two in your room can be added to your getaway anytime. Upon request we do our best to accommodate any wine interests you may have which are not presented on our elaborate wine list. We strive to make your stay as special as possible.
While staying on Cape Cod be sure to be on the lookout for our unique roses which grow here. A Saltspray rose or fairy rose can always do the trick when trying to find the special flower for someone. Share a day hiking on a piece of the 550 miles of coast line which Cape Cod has to offer or tour the many galleries & shops we have scattered from town to town. Whether you want the quiet weekend alone or a place for an unforgettable social gathering, we have been told the Belfry Inn is the place to go! Try Cape Cod this Valentine’s Day and experience something completely new.
Come and enjoy Christmas Eve and begin Christmas with a fabulous dinner with family and friends at the Belfry Inne & Bistro. Better yet stay in one of our romantic guest rooms on our special Christmas Package

We are sponsoring this wine tasting at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast for the non-profit R.I.S.E. Worldwide. All proceeds from the tasting itself will go toward the organization.

R.I.S.E. Worldwide's mission is to be a catalyst to education, entrepreneurship & generational change within insolvent communities. The non-profit recently launched a fundraising campaign to help fund an initiative called Project Ripple. The organization's first attempt at creating a business model has been named Project Ripple, as they believe they are about to drop a stone into the water which will create a wave of change around the world. The purpose of this project is to establish a prototype community center in Tanzania while also instrumentally getting other featured projects off the ground as well. The test phase will last a minimum of 3 months and will cost more than $10,000 to put into fruition. The question you must ask your self is, "Do you believe you are a catalyst toward change?"
