The stresses of getting ready for the holidays and fewer daylight hours can wear us down this time of year. To help our fellow Brockton dwellers unwind and recharge, we created our ideal itinerary for a relaxing weekend in and around Brockton, MA!
Treat yourself by enjoying the top eats and restful retreats on the South Shore, featured by category, in our guide below.
Best Brockton Restaurant: Cape Cod Café
Your relaxing weekend begins with grabbing a bite at the spot that made South Shore bar pizza a household name: Cape Cod Café. Since the 1940’s, the Jamoulis family has been whipping up their famously unique 10-inch pan pizza. Huge flavor and texture is packed into every mouthwatering pie, featuring grilled veggies, an abundance of cheese, and buttery crust with a satisfying crunch.
If you’re looking to indulge, go for one of Cape Cod Café’s specialty bar pizzas with a comfort food flair like the Macaroni and Cheese pizza featuring mac like mom used to make, and a crave-worthy cheese blend or the Meat Eater that combines six savory meat toppings including sausage, linguica, and salami with cheese and a homemade meat sauce.
Best Dessert in Brockton: White’s Bakery and Café
This weekend, say “yes” to dessert at Brockton’s top baked good shop — White’s Bakery and Café. The White’s Bakery menu has every type of cake or confection imaginable to satisfy your sweet tooth, from iced Danishes to warm-from-the-oven cupcakes and tantalizing handmade pastries like cannolis or chocolate-dipped cream puffs.
Dig into a decadent slice of chocolatey Midnight Madness cake, take a mini tour of many sweet bites by purchasing a spread of their mini-sized pastries, or take home a custom cookie box of your fresh-baked favorites.
Best South Shore Bed and Breakfast: The Gryphon House
Now, it’s time to get some R and R at the South Shore’s top bed and breakfast: The Gryphon House. Situated in a turn-of-the-century brownstone near the T stop at Kenmore Square, the Gryphon House is the ultimate getaway locale for a rewarding escape that’s just a short train ride away.
