Great breakfast visit!

Wonderful bakery! Their muffins were huge! The selection is great, and of course everything we purchased was excellent! We even purchased extra for our plane ride home. Yum!

As far as charm, this place nails it, but the sweet creations leave something to be desired. I'd rather go for the sugar across the street at the Nantucket Candy Company.

You might be standing on a cute historic road in Nantucket but one bite and you will be transported to Paris. Petticoat Row Bakery has some of the nicest staff and some of the best tasting pastries and baked goods you can find anywhere. Having a party? Order a cake! Need some breakfast? Must get some croissants. An afternoon pick-me-up?... More

Always loved Petticoat Row for their tasty croissants, cupcakes, cookies, quiche, etc. We especially loved the carrot cake. When my birthday rolled around this year, the carrot cake tasted quite different from the 5 or 6 we had ordered in the past. Have to say, we were disappointed and wondered why the recipe had changed. We later heard there had... More

But the selection, for us, left a little to be desired. While they were very kind in offering a free cookie sample, the sample was not good enough to entice an actual purchase of the item. We grabbed a few juices and pastries that were fine but not great.

Short walk from The Nantucket Hotel. Stopped by every morning for coffee and some great bakery products. The smells are worth the walk.

Based on other reviews, I'll give it another try, but the cannoli were dreadful: soggy, too lemony, off.

Oh my gosh, this is great! So many options from breakfast sandwiches, crossaints, cookies, and muffins and all so fresh! Coffee was the best we had on the island.

This cute little bakery is on 35 Centre St, not to be confused with Center St, that shows up under Google Maps out in Siasconset. It's located not far from the Steamship Authority Docks on Nantucket. Just walk straight up Broad Street and take a left turn on Centre Street. About a ten minute walk straight up Broad Street to... More

Great cappuccino and cookies; no indoor seating but there are plenty of nearby benches to sit on and enjoy the yumminess.
