This is my new favorite restaurant. My reaction to their new chef is, Wow! We just had an outstanding dinner at Sweet Life Cafe, Oak Bluffs. There were five in our party and we all got different apps and entrees, so we had a pretty complete sample of the menu, and of course traded bites. Everything was delicious,and reminded me... More

Sitting on the terrace eating dinner was a delightful experience. Service could use a little work but the food is fabulous if a little pricey. One of our party had the scallops for a main course which was delicious but, come on guys, $34 for a dish containing 2 scallops is a bit steep - they were large scallops, still.... More

We passed by this little place every day, but we only ate there the last night. After a very relaxing and high quality meal, we can't wait to get back for breakfast. The enclosed porch is where you want to sit.

We had tried to have dinner at Sweet Life Cafe many times, but were never able to get a table because it is so popular. Last night, a Sunday night and Father's Day, we finally got a table and it was also Restaurant Week on Martha's Vineyard, so they had a special $45 three-course menu, as well. The restaurant is...

food was excellent and located across from the Oak Bluffs Inn which made the choice easy. The food was excellent and was served in a relaxed atmosphere. We understand it is Obama's favorite place to dine.

Bread tasted homemade and was seasoned with rosemary.I believe it had apple bacon, fried green tomatoes. Sandwich was enough for my husband and I for a late evening snack as a take out order.It was delicious!

I'm an event planner and have never visited MV. My client had invited 6 of her friends to the Vineyard for a long weekend to celebrate her 50th Birthday with her. They were looking for a special place to have dinner on their final night. I found Sweet Life on the internet and coordinated over the phone with Alex, the... More

Sweet Life Cafe has converted a grand old home on Circuit Ave. in Oak Bluffs into a fine restaurant with a terrific yard for outdoor seating. This is a casually elegant upscale restaurant with no-nonsense service, as starched and intensely proper as any you’ve seen. The food reflects the same focus on excellence, beautifully prepared and served, a real treat... More

When we first came to the Vineyard many years ago, this restaurant was among our favorites. But, after a few underwhelming and disapointing meals here in recent years, we "dropped" Sweet Life from our annual Vineyard rotation. Having heard about the new owners and read the recent reviews, we "gave it a whirl" again in August with some first-time-on-island friends.... More

I went to the Sweet Life with my husband during our vacation on Martha's Vineyard in July. We brought our sleeping baby in his carseat and tucked him away under us while we ate. The atmosphere was not noisy, but was not stuffy and quiet either. Baby slept the whole time, and we enjoyed a lovely time together. The best... More
