After five fantastic seasons, the time for change has come. As extended caregiving and our other work have
consumed more and more of our time and energy, we have reached the sad conclusion that we will not be able to continue with
the Chat House.
Though this is bittersweet to say the least, what a time it’s been! None of it would have
happened without the artists, art buyers, musicians, poets, writers, filmmakers, dancers, historians, students, animal rescuers,
activists, actors, artisans, docents, fellow business owners, visitors from around the world, our loyal locals, and our crazy-cool
employees. This energetic, vibrant community truly came together to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Wow.
The Chat House was an unforgettable moment in time—something we’ll always look back on with fondness, hilarity,
gratitude, and most of all a sense of awe. Thank you for being part of it.
Cape Cod Chat House
Gallery was an art and coffee house in an
eco-renovated circa-1853 building located at 593 Route 6A in historic Dennis Village...a community gathering place to enjoy art, food, coffee, tea, shopping, ideas, inspiration, and conversation.
THE NEXT CHAPTER?
Many people have fallen in love with the Chat House, but few
have seen even half of what’s here. In addition to the gallery rooms, café, patio, front porch, and giant parking
lot, there’s an upstairs bakery, multiple offices, an attic overlooking Route 6A, a large basement—even a secret
root cellar. Zoned mixed-use, the building could even become fully or partly residential again.
restaurant, retail shop(s), school, music or art studio, offices, live/work space, or some combination—so many possibilities!
Could it be YOUR time to create something amazing here?

From our wave-patterned, recycled granite walkway and our bamboo floors to our natural quartz
and walnut-shell countertops, Cape Cod Chat House has always been committed to the environment and to high-quality foods and
beverages made of healthy, natural ingredients. Our disposables (bowls, plates, paper cups, utensils, napkins, paper towels)
were recycled/eco-friendly/biodegradable whenever possible. Our coffee was provided by Beanstock Coffee Roasters, featuring
many organic and fair-trade coffees. We used dairy products free of growth hormones and antibiotic residues. Our entire property
was smoke-free, indoors and out, and we used no chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
