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!

Has everything you could ask for. Great food, comfortable environment, downtown location, decent prices. With the prices as they are in Nantucket for dining, this is a good place to find. Service is excellent and friendly.
