Usually I don't even eat breakfast, but when I do I go to the Fog Island Cafe. Decided to mix it up a bit by going to Black Eyed Susan's. Had to wait outside for about 1/2 hr. Then we were seated at a small table right next to the door. I know it's a tiny place, but really -... More

This is by far one of the best breakfast places that you can go to while on Nantucket Island. I love the French toast. It's a little wait to sit usually, but it's worth every minute.

Every time were in Nantucket we eat breakfast here when we can.The food quality is absolutely fantastic. The only downside, there's usually a wait, this is a very small place and during the summer it is hot hot hot. They don't know about air-conditioning. Even with the downside, we absolutely love this place.

The food here never disappoints. For breakfast there is usually a wait but it's well worth it. The Dutch style pancakes are delicious! And dinner is just as good. It's also byob so bring some champagne for mimosas or a bottle of wine for dinner.

Best breakfast on the island. I got an omelet and the cheese grits-amazing. My husband had the Portuguese scramble and loved it. Cute place, locals eat here and cash/check only...

Great Sunday brunch - had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but had a totally enjoyable meal. Good coffee, yummy French toast, perfectly crisp bacon, tasty "scramble" with linguica, but the high point was the grits. Absolutely buttery with a little texture left to them. And watching the incredibly efficient and orchestrated service was lots of fun. A... More

Sometimes, timing can be everything. Honestly, Black Eyed Susan's probably would be best visited in the off, or shoulder season. Unless you don't mind waiting a solid hour for your table for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. It's popular...very popular. That said, I found the food to be quite good. My Thai egg-scramble was delicious. My wife was not over-the-top... More

Nice breakfast joint. Good size portions, good quality and quick service. Pretty much the standard breakfast fare with some local twists. A pleasant and filling meal for around $28. Worth the visit.

For some reason this place gets a lot of recommendations on the island. We didn't have any sweet breakfast so if pancakes are your thing perhaps check it out. We had huevos rancheros and corned beef hash, both if which were below your average diner in NYC. Hash was more like potatoes with some corned beef flavoring. Much better breakfast... More

We ate here for dinner in 2013, which was good and a little cheaper than there places we have eaten, but again not amazing. Breakfast 2014 had amazing food (french toast, egg scrabbles, and amazing tex-mex hash browns). We ate outside at a shared table with possibly the rudest people we have ever encountered. This, however, was not the restaurants... More
