This place has been around for ever, great breakfast but don't forget to pick up some donuts on your way out.
The breakfast, the coffee, the staff, all deserve 5 stars. This is the place for a wonderful breakfast while on the island. The blueberry pancakes are authentic, delicious and hot hot hot. The waffles are perfect, the eggs are made exactly right, and the coffee is plentiful and flavorful. And the staff at Downyflake couldn't be nicer!! Don't miss this... More
If you want to go out for breakfast while you're on the Island, this is the place. Nothing fancy, just good, solid food and plenty of hot coffee.

A diner type cute place in mid island, a little bit of a walk from Nantucket town. Gets packed in summer, not sure if the a\c was working or if they even had any.
