Today was one of those days. We bundled up and got in the car heading east on scenic Route 6A. The drive alone was wonderful, with the sun glistening off the water at almost high tide on Scorton Creek and all the little ponds along that stretch of road. The swans on one of the ponds were also enjoying the sunshine.

Momo's Food Emporium is nestled along Route 6A between the road and the marshes in East Sandwich. As you step in the door, you almost forget that you came to have lunch when you see the cakes and pastries that fill the case in the front of the shop. My eye landed on a hummingbird cake and I began to salivate. Maybe later......First, deciding what to enjoy for lunch.

|Momo's Food Emporium|
Momo's is a lovely place for lunch but it is so much more. There are wonderful dishes to pick up for dinner, a nice selection of imported and specialty foods, and they cater parties and gatherings. Last Thanksgiving, I picked up all of the side dishes that I served for dinner here. What a treat that was. The works of local artisans are featured in the shop and Neila, the owner and chef, conducts cooking classes. Be sure to peruse their website.
We always tell our guests they should stop in for a treat but we have decided to put this charming emporium on our list of regular places to frequent for either lunch or our afternoon snack..... they do, after all, have 4 C's Ice Cream. Maybe we will see you there.
