Great Local experience!

This is a great place for breakfast - always delicious and loaded with local flavor. Located right in the airport

One of my favorite destinations for the infamour $100 breakfast is the Bethany Diner on Block Island. Besides the fine food, the service is always pleasant and attentive. I guess my only complaint would be that I wish it were larger and could accomodate more people, since it is so popular.

Crazy busy during the summer but worth the wait for the awesome breakfast. Arrive with lots of patience although very entertaining to wait adjacent to the airport runway. Food is fabulous from the omelettes, to the huge breakfast burrito. Grilled homemade corn bread is a staple and always some great specials on the board.

Block Island in the heart of summer season can get pretty shaky on customer service: way, way, way too many middle- and upper-income tourists getting served mostly by young, seasonal and sometimes bored-with-the-summer-job employees, while being charged premium rates. Even by that low standard, Bethany's is shockingly vile. It's a tiny space in a tiny airport, but has the prospects... More

Yes, we did! Coming back from the North Lighthouse, we pedaled out to the airport because I’d heard there was a diner there. This was a great find! We sat outside on the patio, which is right next to the runway, so while you’re eating lunch you can watch the planes arriving and departing! I had the club sandwich and... More

This is a great spot. The wait staff is fun and gives you a slice of life on the island in the off season. It is popular with locals and you hear some great stuff sitting in close proximity of other diners. I love the pancakes and the chowder. Go for the experience. The location at the airport is eye-opening... More

Sitting outside, right next to the airport while you drink your coffee is pretty cool, so Bethany's definitely has that going for them. Other than that..... It took about 30 minutes to get our food, and they had mixed up our orders; we ate it anyway because at this point we were really really hungry, and scared it would be... More

Flew in to drop off a couple of pax and place looked good so decided to stay for breakfast. Great food. Had a mushroom and spinach omelette which was truly outstanding. Service was quick even though the place was packed. Sat outside and watched the planes come and go. Will definitely be back.

This place is the only game In town if you want breakfast. You can't pick a better meal either, great menu with some unique options. I had the egg white vegetarian omelet with sausage. All I can say is phenomenal. The wait staff was quick and sweet. It was also entertaining to watch the planes land and take off.

Ok, this is a "locals" place so leave your tourist self at the door. The food is terrific. Probably the best breakfast place you will find on BI. Breakfast sandwiches are awesome. We always go there before getting on the ferry. The pace is...well...Island pace. Sit back, enjoy your coffee, read the BI Times and enjoy the planes taking off... More
