Disappointing after reading all the reviews. On this Sunday morning (4/13/14) the staff acted as though they could not care. Food was okay, but the customer service truly lacked. Nobody looked pleasant; all seemed put upon when we asked about choices. Not friendly. They are clearly living off a past reputation...and they know it. 'Just have your money ready and... More

The staff looked annoyed to be working or serving. Attitude at check out was terse, unfriendly and hurried. When we asked what croissants they had, the reply was indifferent - "look in the case". Nothing special about this bakery. Living off a reputation and the staff knows it. Food was okay...coffee average. Sunday morning, July 13 at 9:30am.

Right around the corner from our lodging. Missed going on our first day but not or second. Not to be missed kg we ever return. Amazing amount of blueberries in the muffin. They just exploded in your mouth. Really good coffee as well. Don't miss this place.

If you read my reviews, you know I really love dessert. Petticoat has the best cupcakes I have had in a long time. No mixes here. They make a coconut macaroon that is like a cloud. They have mini apple pies, amazing cookies, fresh brewed iced tea and coffee. I cannot say enough about this bakery. They take great pride... More

Yummy everything! Breakfast treats and cookies were delicious, cute little place a little on the outskirts of the main shopping area but worth the walk! Wish it stayed open all day.

The bakery is certainly not a walk by. We were just around the corner at a B&B and made it a point to stop in everyday. The selection is great and everything is fresh and tasty.

I am fortunate enough to be able to go to Nantucket every year. This is always a must do when on island......and by must do I mean must do several times! It's a great place!

Visiting Nantucket from Hershey Pa,I was craving something sweet...The Petticoat Row had a nice curb appeal so we went in. Great iced coffee, my friend had the nutter butter cookie and I chose the red velvet cupcake...wow...both were excellent. The owner was very nice to chat with. Thank you for satisfying our sweet tooth.
