I went here with my boyfriend and brother. The food was good and everyone was full. It was a little expensive but was to be expected given the island.

I would recommend the fog fish cake Benedict ! Perfect. My husband had the bagel sandwich with linguica and he raved about it! Service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only downside is it gets crowded and noisy.

My boyfriend and I ate at Fog Island twice while in Nantucket for a week and the food/service was excellent. The cheese and mushroom omelet I ordered both days was HUGE and stuffed with goodies, while the eggs benedict my boyfriend opted for was gobbled up in seconds flat. It's a cozy little place with a very friendly staff and... More

Its small and the bathrooms are not in the best condition but the food is great. We had breakfast, and it by far was the best during out vacation.

Stopped by for a quick breakfast on the last day in the Island. I was greeted and sat promptly. All the service steps were very timely and proper. Very busy place but attentive service. Best orange juice ( I think they were hand squeezed).

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
