Sitting at the counter was like experiencing what it must have been like years ago to go to the soda shoppe! We ordered root beer float and ice cream. Both were delicious! Definitely would go again when visiting Nantucket!

Sitting on the stool at the Pharmacy counter for lunch is sheer delight! Don't know whether to watch the bustle behind the counter as Frappe's (milkshakes) are made with skill, or try to read all the hand-written menu items posted on the walls. My favorite:...More

A trip to the lunch counter at the Nantucket Pharmacy is a must for anyone visiting the Island. Step inside the way use to be - great shakes to cool off on a hot summers day!

We ordered BLT and egg salad sandwiches which were tasty enough. Don't plan on downing a large coffee here and expect access to a restroom, though. The pharmacy clerk was very rude about when I inquired about using the restroom there. I wouldn't have minded...More

I was in need of a quick sandwich when I happened upon the Pharmacy. What a nice surprise! It's a throwback to the 1950s or earlier and delicious! They serve ice cream and sodas of all kinds and great sandwiches. I had an egg salad...More

We were catching the 8pm ferry back to Hyannis and popped in here before heading to the ferry terminal. It was around 7pm and the two coffee shops in town were already closed, so we settled on an ice cream instead. The shop frontage is...More
