The Gift of New England History


If you know someone who appreciates New England Charm and History, they’ll enjoy a thoughtful gift to one of “The Great Tea Rooms of America”, Dunbar House Restaurant & Tea Room located in Sandwich, MA, where there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Owner, James Hegarty, tells us that the Restaurant and Tea Room were at one time the carriage house to the main house, circa 1740. The original the tea room sits in an old wood paneled billiard and gentlemen’s smoking room. Now, it is home to the clinking of tea cups rather than billiard balls and the aromas of baking pies, cakes, shortbread and scones rather than pipe smoke. Both the original tea room and the new dining room have fireplaces that are stoked up for the winter.

Dunbar House proudly serves a fine selection of British Ales and European Wines, Ports and Sherries. Their cozy and intimate atmosphere is world renowned for providing the perfect setting to catch up with an old friend or to meet a new one.

The Dunbar House Tea Room provides a lovely atmosphere where friends and acquaintances can gather and enjoy each other’s company over a hot cup of tea and tea sandwiches as well as a wide selection from their desert display.

The Outdoor Patio, overlooking Shawme Pond, is surrounded by sprawling beautifully-maintained gardens, while their all-new Wine Bar and Tavern adds an extra space for guests to socialize and enjoy lunch, tapas and dinner with live entertainment and a wide selection of wine and beer.

Fresh, Locally-Sourced Takeout?


5 years ago owner Monica Fletcher turned what was once her hobby into one of the best takeout places in the South Shore – Acorn Canning Company located at 1175 Ocean St, Marshfield, MA.

When you walk into Acorn Canning Company, you have a look into the funky fun that happens in the kitchen as your food is being created. Walls are covered with cookbooks and counters sport not only Fletcher’s creations, but support other local business’ products, such as Jenny D’s Bees Honey.

Each day, food is made from scratch and includes everything from homemade pies, towering to-die-for sandwiches, delicious salads, and heart-warming soups served with a sense of humor that leaves you wanting to go back for more.

The menu changes daily as Fletcher relies on the fresh local delivery of food and creates her menu based on what she has on hand. The daily offerings can be found on the Acorn Canning Facebook Page.  Along with the regular menu items, customers can also call to request special dishes or dinner for the night.

The freshness is just part of what makes Acorn Canning Company’s food so good. What really makes Acorn Canning Company great is Monica Fletcher. She cooks with her whole heart, which you can taste in every piece of bread, pie, and biscuit she makes. But what’s more is the time she takes to get to know every customer (and when she sends your husband home with free soup and homemade tortillas when you are sick because she knows it’s your favorite).

So if you are looking for the perfect gift for the foodie in your life, send them a gift card to Acorn Canning Company.

The Local Wine Tasting Experience


If you’re looking for a thoughtful gift for someone who enjoys and seeks out local wines wherever they go, look no further than Plymouth, MA, where the new 1620 Winery & Wine Bar is located.

Owners Robert & Raquel Mullaney welcome all of their guests with a big smile and with open arms.  Robert is not only a Co-Owner but also the Vintner as he comes from a long line of Sicilian wine makers (Fazino) and is tapping into his Italian influences to create delightful wines here in the states.

Guests can also enjoy their chosen bottle of wine with a pairing board that is made only with the finest artisanal meats and cheeses, hand selected and locally sourced right here in New England.

They have several options with which to enjoy their experience; outside around a fire pit overlooking historic Plymouth waterfront and harbor; inside on a plush couch in front of the crackling fireplace; next to the Grand Piano enjoying live music, or they can cozy up to the beautiful bar where they will most likely be able to have a fun and lively chat with Co-Owner Raquel.
