This is a great place to get breakfast on the island. Friendly staff, delicious food, and a perfect way to start the day.

We saw a line forming outside early on an October Saturday morning and knew it must be good. It has a very comprehensive breakfast menu including Benedict's, omelettes, fruit, yogurt, etc. Everything we ordered was hot, fresh and tasty. Coffee was excellent.

Casual and delicious. A Nantucket staple! Next time we will call ahead for takeout to the ferry. Cozy and a bit close with all the people in there but worth it.

Most B&Bs here serve continental breakfast so when you are in the mood for something more hearty stroll to Fog Island. Sure there are fancier brunch spots but this is the way to meet the locals. It’s solid breakfast fare in the middle of town.

We were on Nantucket for three nights, staying close to Fog Island. We ordered breakfast sandwiches for take out on two separate occasions--solid choice if you want to grab something and go!
