A bit pricey, but delish! First-rate offerings...We were strolling around and purchased a ½ dozen different cookies. Peanut butter and ginger cookies were great!!!!

This bakery is always great for a good cup of coffee. Their pies and sweets are all made from scratch! It is absolutely worth a visit.

I dream about the pain au chocolat all year long. Seriously one of the best I have ever had and I can't wait to have one still warm from the oven. The coffee is pretty good. And the other baked good are delicious as well, but both the croissants are exceptional.

Great little place for your morning coffee and muffin! Nice to find somewhere on the island that actually does their own baking. Egg sandwiches are also a nice choice. The morning glory and blueberry muffins were yummy although the former was definitely baked yesterday. Jim's organic coffee is also key.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. The sandwiches were huge, fresh and delicious! I could have ordered one of everything from the bakery case and if we were staying longer, I probably would have! The cheese danish looked particularly good...

My wife and I spent a day on Nantucket and went to Petticoat Row Bakery after getting off the ferry. My wife had a cinnamon bun and I had a blueberry muffin. They were both delicious. The coffee was very good and they had a large selection of teas to choose from. The shop was very clean and comfortable. I... More

The Morning Bun is the reason to come here! I was advised this by the employees who served me, but, it was true for sure. The dough is a cross between a cinnamon bun and a rolled type of donut. The bakers know how to provide enough cinnamon sugar with a light dough that just melts in your mouth. A... More

They have good cakes and pies that you can special order ahead of time. Also, solid cupcakes and cookies. Good place to enjoy an iced coffee and treat - they have couches, tables, chairs set up inside. Be prepared for the "attitude" of the staff - this seems to be another place on Nantucket that doesn't appreciate it's customers. We... More
