A great spot for breakfast or lunch, especially in the off season.

This is one of our go to spots for fresh bread and excellent coffee year round. They also offer excellent breakfast and lunch meals, although in the summer this is NOT a quick spot to stop - even when lines are short, the wait for your food is not. I find their bakery foods to be very sweet, but... read more

The Pilgrim sandwich, turkey, stuffing, cranberry on ciabatta bread is delicious. The fries were excellent as well. To get in the spirit of the season enjoy the mulled cider, it was soothing.

Stopped here for lunch. Had the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich which was just outstanding and big enough to split . That left room for dessert ! There are so many options but I finally settled on a fruit tart which I quickly devoured. I believe the menu has enough options for every taste and the servings are very generous... More

Great sandwich shop serving early hours down by the harbour. Muffins to die for - try the lemon and poppy seed. Wide range of take out sandwiches and wraps, all consistently good.

Also coffee, ice coffee and iced tea " refills " are $1 if you bring your own cup (any size)... So you can get out of there with your complete breakfast... More

Many choices of sandwiches, beverages and bakery items to choose from. Was very busy when we stopped for some iced coffee.

Had a chocolate desert, can't remember what it is called but it was A-ma-zing! Looks like a tort, layered and all chocolate. Super rich, so good to split

While the selection is not huge, what they do have is good. Pastries, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks is what they do have. And it's right next door to where the ferry is. Leave time as the line gets longest when the boat is close to leaving. I liked their jelly donuts.

The sandwiches are good and salad are serviceable. It's a fun place to go once when you visit Martha's Vineyard. If you have children it's a good choice. Definitely not a food destination.

Food has gone from great to mediocre. 20 years ago my husband and I enjoyed a truly sublime dinner here. It was our first stop--this time for breakfast--upon our return. Imagine our disappointment when we were served an expensive, sub-par breakfast badly in need of seasoning and fresh vegetables. The tomato in my egg dish was clearly one from a... More
