Located in the heart of Padanaram Village,
Little Moss offers a unique dining experience featuring the best local ingredients our area has to offer.

Formerly the Beach Plum Café, Little Moss Restaurant is the result of our long time dream of offering hand made, locally sourced food to our hometown of Padanaram, MA. Named for a small packet ship featured in Moby Dick, it evokes the rich maritime history of the village, which was once a whaling port. 

The surrounding area, aptly known as the “Farmcoast,” is renowned for it’s abundant farming and fishing communities.   We are very lucky to be able to work with local farmers and fisherman to serve our guests some of the finest ingredients in New England.  Our small, innovative menu highlights local seafood and produce, and changes regularly based on what’s available during the seasons.  The newly renovated dining room and patio provide a warm, casual atmosphere to enjoy our food, as well as a unique selection of craft cocktails, craft beer, and wine. 

We look forward to seeing you here soon!
