Great stop for lunch. Had the burrito bowl with the chicken and it was good and filling. My friend had the tacos and enjoyed them.

We enjoyed the food and had good service, but it was not one of the best meals we ever had. It was interesting to watch the people as we waited for out food and then ate it. A wide variety of ages.

I visited during the Nantucket Stroll, so the cafe was very busy. We gave our names and then walked around for a bit. We were a party of 8 so expected to wait longer than we did.

Cute little diner-like breakfast spot, filled with a combination of tourists and regular locals. solid food, solid service. Get there early - it gets mobbed quickly.

Eggs Benedict any styles are super good as are the home fries. Cranberry Pancakes were also excellent. The menu also offers eggs made a variety of ways. Great cup of coffee too.

We all fit into a both, and the help was great! Even stood on a stool to get pictures of us enjoying the event, the food, and the people. The food was outstanding, and the service was exceedingly fast.
