I stopped in here for a cuppa joe while my wife shopped. No complaints, nothing special. There were the usual sort of pastries and the like, but nothing grabbed me.

This is is one of the few places in Nantucket that, a vistor from the UK, would call a coffee shop. We visited everday whilst on the island for our daily cappuccino fix. The drinks were always well made with a good amount of foam.

We had lunch at the Bean while in Nantucket and highly recommend this place. It is a small place but the food is of excellent quality. You can have a wonderful lunch at this place for a quite affordable price. Not to be missed
