Stepping into Hallet's is like stepping back in time. Old fashioned sandwiches and ice cream are serve by a friendly gentleman in this old fashioned shop. A fun place to visit for the young and the young at heart while on Route 6A on Cape Cod!

Went in to get a quick lunch to go. Had a great sandwich at a great price. Seems like it is back in time and very nice owner.

This felt like stepping back into time. We had a large group but were quickly served and everyone had something different -- everybody was pleased with their choice!

My daughter needed a quick snack before we headed on our next driving leg. The ice cream here was expensive but very high quality fresh hand-made right there, and she was very happy with her selection (chocolate). The store itself was clean, with a great historical ambiance.

The past comes alive in Hallet's on Main Street in Yarmouth Port. The store, originally adjoining the owner's house around the corner, was reopened tin the 19th century to attract customers on the road snaking through the center of town.

The place is never open like a retail business should be. The owner is rude and I doubt very highly the food fresh.

Good for a sandwich, soda, and nostalgia. In the "heart" of Yarmouth Port, this historic drugstore still has the old woodwork and if you're lucky, local characters.

We happened across Hallet's by accident and happy that we did. As you enter you feel like you've taken a step back in time. We ordered a bowl of their famous clam chowder, shared a tuna salad sandwich and a bottle of Hallet's rootbeer. All were really tasty.They have large cans of their chowder available for sale which is a... More
