Tasty food, quick service

This place is a local and tourist favorite. Its always packed in season but its worth the wait. Great bites and pleasant staff along with quick service. They are famous for the oatmeal.. Nice choices on the menu and serves breakfast until late.

Our lunch was the best! Clam chowder and a divine pulled pork with ginger dressing and spicy relish. Fun atmosphere with fun staff!

Great little spot for breakfast. Attentive staff delicious food reasonable prices. We were referred here by a local resident and he didn't steer us wrong. It is a byob establishment so keep that in mind. Will definitely go again.

Fog Island is far and away my favorite breakfast spot on Nanatucket. I visit the island 4 -6 times a year and typically have breakfast here several times each visit.

Charming, cozy, friendly staff, great food... What's not to like about this Nantucket classic!!! We live two blocks up the street all summer and this is our "go to" breakfast spot. You won't be disappointed.

Mouth watering French toast, awesome breakfast sandwiches (try the Veggie-tucket!), and the friendliest staff, host and crowd! Well worth the wait outside on Stroll weekend! Always a "must go" before leaving the Island.
