we live here, and this is our favorite breakfast spot, It is small and the early bird gets the seats.Also a great place to get dinner or lunch. we avoid town during lunch and diner but get up early for their breakfast.

Love this small bistro…..They kindly accommodated a large group with very little hesitation and gave us a wonderful meal. We did come in as late as possible to not interfere with regular service. Great soups and salads a different menu special daily and everything fresh. Take out also, reasonably priced.

We just celebrated a 40th and 50th Birthday party for our children last Saturday. Tim and Ruth cooked an amazing meal for us. Lobster and bay scallops over risotto and the other dish was tenderloin. You can BYOB. Try it!!

The small restaurant in downtown Nantucket serves delicious food. We went for dinner and everything we ordered was tasty, well presented and good. The service was also very good, and you can bring your own wine!

Her name is Sarah. She manages this bistro and she is a multi-tasker extraordinaire. The four of us arrived at 12:45 and there was a line-up. We entered the very small dining area and she gently ushered us out the door to wait for a table. There were only seven tables and 19 seats available. Meanwhile she, alone, took phone... More

I'm glad I did - many people tried to walk in on a Saturday night and could not be accommodated. We had the risotto, french onion soup and a flounder dish. All were great and... More

Although the space is small, there is ample space for a delicious and romantic meal. We made reservations in advance after attempting to have dinner there the night before. I ordered the pre fixe which included a salad, entree, and a dessert. It included the house salad (I paid a little more for the goat cheese tart salad), ravioli with... More

We stumbled upon this small restaurant, and are very fortunate that they could seat us without reservations. There are not many tables, so I would recommend calling for reservations. My meal was probably my favorite on Nantucket as each tasting seemed to bring out a different flavor.

Best feature is we could bring our own wine, but food was average quality and expensive. Had a rice dish with lobster, but there was scant lobster.
