Great breakfast offered all day (Pancakes to die for) and great coffee. Fast service with a very homey feel. Hours are limited to 8:00a-2:00p, and just 1 pm on Sunday, but you won't find a better bargain on the Island

We came here with 15 people after the triathalon and we were accommodated very quickly. We were spread out in 3 tables which was perfectly fine for a small restaurant. The service was prompt& professional (we could tell we were in good hands) and the food was exactly what we expected...yummy! Most of us had various scrambles and they were... More

I used to LOVE this sot. It was a real "hidden" gem on Nantucket. This past visit we arrived and it was VERY busy. We had to wait (outside was the only place) in the pouring rain with our toddler and infant. We put our name in, told the woman we were waiting outside with the others, and waited... We... More

Cozy and simple with a fun staff that works fast. Don't miss the Portuguese toast. Early action so pop out of bed in a hurry. Good coffee place right around the corner.

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast after arriving in Nantucket on the 8AM Ferry out of Harwich. The restaurant was just a couple of blocks from where the ferry dropped us off. It was a Wednesday in early July at around 9:30AM and we did not have to wait for a table. I did notice when we were... More

Great place for breakfast. We were met at the door by Mark who was friendly and took our name as there was a wait. We waited for about 10 minutes (worth it) and then our waiter (Jed) came over and was very attentive. The food was great and we ordered one of the specials and a breakfast from the menu.... More

We started going to Fog Island last month and have gone consistently, at least three times a week, for breakfast ever since. Why? They are reliably consistent. If you're looking for a cheap, greasy spoon breakfast for $3 it's probably not your cup of tea. Everything here is fresh (not from a can, bag, or freezer) and homemade, which means... More

It was drizzling and we ducked into Fog Island. It is casual friendly, small- right in the heart of town. We had sandwiches and dome of their very good clam chowder. The menu is unpretentious, and I have only had lunch there.
