You'll have to wait in line, but it's a great little place -- nothing fancy, just great food in an adorable in-town setting!

Legendary breakfast spot with cozy atmosphere and perfect service. Tasty breakfast by pricey. A good place to start the exploration of Nantucket. Thai scramble and egg Benedict are the must.

Delicious breakfast options (the Portuguese scramble was heavenly), perfectly brewed coffee, genuinely kind staff, fast service. Sit at the counter if possible. No frills or pretension makes for good company of customers. too (keeps a certain kind of patron away.)

Yes, there will be a line. Yes, it's worth the wait. Really superb food. We ordered different things so that we could sample -- and all were equally yummy!

We were lucky to eat here on their first open day of the season, before the island got busy. Otherwise it would have been a wait. Had a nice window view, fine waiter and a great breakfast.

The food was great and the place had a nice southern vibe but it was way too hot and I am never warm! It's small so you have to wait until a table is available, and that could be a log time with the Nantucket summer crowds. The food is excellent but I would have enjoyed it more if I... More

We had a great breakfast here on Sunday morning. We went around 8:00 AM and we got right in. If you wait until 10:00 you may have to wait in line. You can order one breakfast here and it is large enough for 2 people. Very tasty and the staff is very friendly.
