Great hip coffeehouse in unlikely location

If you don't want to eat at one of the seafood shacks or the fried food shack and you're looking for an upscale coffee house feel -- this is your place. A little odd to find such a place at this location but the food and drinks were good and much healthier than other alternatives in the area.

I did not enjoy the coffee here as it was a bitter Vienna roast. I really wished I had tried one of the iced teas which I did not notice until I was outside again. There was a board listing the really interesting flavors like Cran Lime Hibiscus. That might have been better than the bitter brew I got that... More

Hi Genny - Thank you for taking time to share your experience. Our coffee beans arrive freshly roasted from the western part of the state, an elite micro-roaster we have worked with since we opened our first coffee house 10 years ago in a small cottage in Vineyard Haven. Their beans are among the very best in the world, fairly... More

$13 for a small sandwich with nothing else included. Add slow service and it makes this beyond the pale in terms of MV pricing ridiculousness.

Hi David, Menemsha is a small working fishing village, located in the most remote and beautifully rustic part of Martha's Vineyard. It is where celebrities, artists, and Presidents go, and many others who want to step back in time and get away from the rest of the world. Thousands of people converge on our tiny village and its handful of... More

Horrible service!! The coffee drinks were very good as were the scones (hence the 2 star review). The service, HORRIBLE! The guy at the counter treated us like we were a nuisance and keeping him from doing something more important (the shop was extremely quiet). I asked him a question about a local tour and he looked down his nose... More

Hi Dreamingmother, Thank you for your comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your experience! When we first set out to design the former fishing chandlery which is now Beetlebung Coffee House, we wanted to create a space that was beautiful yet rustic and inspired by its remote up-island surroundings. We didn't have a big budget to work with so through... More

My husband and I stopped here for coffees and decided to stay for lunch. I'm so glad we did that because the North Beach panini was amazing. Pesto, turkey, mozzarella, and tomatoes grilled together is the best combination. Everything was fresh and my husband enjoyed his Santa Fe panini. I got a cappuccino and it had the perfect foam while... More

We usually get our coffee and light breakfast here. Reasonable prices. Small cafe sitting area. Very simple. Small boutique shop for some gifts and t-shirts.

We enjoyed fresh squeezed fruit drinks and a very good, very large reuben. Dark setting is not the most welcoming during the day but it is probably fun at night since they have a very extensive bar. FYI, you order at counter and they deliver food to your table.

Delish lemon blueberry scones; not a coffee drinker, but had a good cup of tea; loved the design; their tapas menu looked great.

Oak Bluffs. Waited 20 minutes for 2 toasted bagels. I finally went up to the young gal who originally took or order and she was unaware despite our sitting right in front of her. Someone finally came out of the kitchen with the order and said the kitchen forgot. Don't have their act together due to serious lack of communication... More

These guys get what coffee is all about. The espresso is smooth as and you can communicate with the barista about how to take it further from there, to a great caffe latte without too much milk. There's some very comfy booths in which to sit and free wi-fi - which is not to be sneezed at in Martha's Vineyard.... More
