Great menu selection, some healthy options. Clam chowder and our Mediterranean wrap was very good. Service was friendly, nothing exceptional. For Nantucket pricing, we were pleased and would return. A little loud inside.

We did not know how great this place was, but, we just saw the long waiting outside the building. and, decided to try their breakfast there. We then waited for almost 30 minutes. The food was healthy, creative, and the a non-al bloody Mary and the pint of OJ was refreshingly yummy. I craze for a good breakfast wherever I... More

My friend and I had breakfast at the Fog Island Cafe over the weekend of Nantucket Wine Fest. We were seated quickly by a friendly, funny team member and served promptly. The offerings are varied - something for every preference. I had the Loaded Cakes (big fluffy pancakes) and my friend had an omelet. Both meals were delicious and we... More

So Kathy and I have three breakfast places we love on the island. This is one of them. We had a delightful meal yesterday before we headed home. My eggs were delicious and the fish cakes knocked the ball out of the park. Kathy loved the pancake and eggs with crispy bacon. Clean, friendly staff, and convenient as heck right... More

Recommended by our b&b and we can see why....everything was absolutely delicious. So good we went back every day! Kudos especially on the blueberry pancakes and the eggs benedict.

In a sea of fancy corporate restaurants designed to be trendy and take your money, Fog Island is a low key, simple, local place with good food. It's not fancy, just a great place to sit in a booth and get a burger, or pancakes, or soup, and have a pint of local beer. It's a refreshing type place that... More

There aren't many places in town offering breakfast and this is one of the better ones. The selection is varied and the service top notch. Food is well prepared but pricey. I know complaining about prices on Nantucket is an oxymoron but it still makes me cringe a bit paying $30 for a breakfast. Prices aside , this place is... More
