There's no better way to celebrate the long-awaited arrival of spring and summer than to stop by the Beach House snack shop at Hingham Harbor, which opened this week for the season. The snack shop is located in the new Bathing Beach bathhouse/community room building.
Beach food and a variety of ice cream flavors -- everyone's favorite on a sunny day! -- are available, with a spectacular view of the harbor from the deck.
The owners of Stars on Hingham Harbor, Tosca, Caffe Tosca, and Fireking -- which are all part of Eat Well, Inc. -- opened the Beach House for the first time last fall to rave reviews and are looking forward to a very busy season.
Tosca Chef Kevin Long is overseeing the snack shop kitchen and creating the menu items.
"It's a really nice spot, where families and other customers can sit on a blanket or beach chair by the water while enjoying a hamburger, hotdog, lobster roll, taco, and other offerings -- and an ice cream!" Fireking owner Greg Acerra said recently.
"That's what summer is all about!"
Hours of operation are seven days a week, from the end of April until October 1 and maybe later, 11:30 a.m. to 7 or 8 p.m. to begin with, and likely until later during the peak season.
