One of our recent stops was to the town of Mansfield, MA. Home of the Xfinity Center (a concert venue). It is a quaint town rich in history. The village center area has many local businesses to visit.
We had a quick lunch at Fresh Catch, 30 Chauncey Street. We started with the clam chowder, not the best I've had but still good. The girls each had a fish and chip meal but one could have easily been shared. Their fried seafood platter is delicious, huge and perfect for sharing!
Be sure to swing into the Old Country Store & Emporium, it is a real "treat for the senses." Located at 26 Otis St. it is welcoming and offers a sense of nostalgia. Our girls loved browsing the antique candy counter and seeing all the homemade creamy fudge. There is also an old time provisions section featuring common crackers, a variety of cheese spreads, maple products, preserves, jellies and fresh ground coffees. They have some beautiful clocks and curios for sale. Not to miss in the Emporium are the Attic, the Barn and the Stove Room.
Before heading home we stopped at Cupcake Town, 219 North Main St for some dessert to go. Adorable little shop offering cupcakes, pastries, cookies, fresh ground coffee and Espresso. They also make custom cakes. We selected an assortment of half dozen cupcakes. Pictured below are Oreo, Smores, chocolate with patriotic frosting, chocolate chip, pink lemonade and peanut butter cup.
I'm sure there is much more to see and we will need to go back. If you are a resident or have visited, what are your suggestions for Mansfield family friendly hot spots?!
