Among a generous group of restaurants and bakeries the Sagamore Inn is participating in this years Cape and Islands Bakes for Breast Cancer, August 3rd-9th. A fantastic family restaurant, The Sagamore Inn has a colorful history from its foundation in 1900 and is now owned and operated by Michael and Suzanne Bilodeau. A fixture of the community, the Sagamore Inn will be donating the proceeds from all the desserts on their menu to Bakes for Breast Cancer.
“Supporting Bakes for Breast Cancer allows our restaurant to support a very special cause which has a positive impact on our guests and staff either directly or indirectly. The funds raised through Cape and Island Bakes continue to support prevention, continued research and treatment of Breast Cancer”, Beth Ridge, spokesperson, stated.
Bakes for Breast Cancer is extremely thankful to the Sagamore Inn and all its supporters continuing to back its mission despite the difficult conditions for restaurants everywhere. A host of protocols and generally slower business has not made life easy for anyone in the hospitality industry.
“The changing guidelines during the covid-19 pandemic has and continues to impact our industry- it forced us to close our doors and quickly move to a takeout only restaurant with limited staff. As we moved through the phases, we opened to limited outdoor dining. Each phase has a unique impact on staffing, operations, and finance. What it hasn’t changed is our goal to provide amazing good and exceptional service” Beth stated.
Restaurants in Massachusetts have only recently started offering indoor dining again, but business is nowhere near back to normal. Despite a difficult-working environment, the Sagamore Inn continues to look beyond themselves to their communities. “Our involvement in our community is a priority to all at the Sagamore inn- it is a partnership- they are a good part of why we are still in business. It is partnership!” Beth stated.
Regardless, diners at the Sagamore Inn have much to look forward to this summer! “The summer of 2020 will bring spacious outside dining on our deck, under the tent, on the green or inside our dining area. We will be serving our full menu, with daily specials and entertainment. Our customers will continue to enjoy our delicious food with amazing service.” Beth stated. And it would have been remiss not to ask which desserts you should be on the lookout for. “Our customers favorite desserts? We can name a few- Chocolate brownie ala mode, any of our homemade pies or our cheesecake”.
The Sagamore Inn is located at 1131 Sandwich Rd, Sagamore, and further details can be found on their website.
