Whenever we're on the Vineyard, Artcliff is always the spot for our final breakfast before we get on the ferry to America. They have never disappointed us. This morning I had the Blue Ginger French Toast (with blueberries and bits of ginger) while my wife had the Farmer's Market frittata. Both were excellent, as were the staff. Note: all these... More

Great generous breakfasts. Innovative specials. Staff efficient and friendly in a very busy dinner. Ask to sit at the counter if it is really busy.

the only drawback to this great diner is the long lines out front. I opted on both visits for a seat at the counter. Excellent service, great decor and a great menu. I love the spicy chicken hash with island eggs.

We've eaten here plenty of times with a common experience - wonderful food and good service. If you don't might the wait, which can be up to an hour on a busy day, I recommend it.

The Art Cliff Diner was one of my favorite experiences while vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. The place is small, but it has a happening, artsy vibe to it. We were lucky and were able to get a table right away at lunchtime. I had the scallops with mixed greens, and I think it was the best scallop dish that I've... More

This place was great. The food was amazing and the place has a lot of character. The scones, eggs and french toast were delicious. I have to say that this was the best breakfast I have ever had. The only problem with this place is that it is very small. Get there early if you want a table.

If you going to Martha's Vineyard then you have to have breakfast or brunch at Art Cliff's Diner in Vineyard Haven. The best food, excellent staff with a great MV atmosphere. But be prepared to wait, it is a very busy place.

There's no way around it. You will wait a long time to be seated. Put your name on the list and go for walk around town. Then once you are seated, you will experience the sequel to your previous wait. So don't go if you are not prepared for a long wait. The food is very good. I had the... More

It's tradition now for our family to arrive in Vineyard Haven and immediately drive over to the Artcliff for breakfast. As usual, at 6:45 there is already a line. But to me, when you see a line, you know the food will be great and it always is. Because the menu has so many different items on it, we quickly... More
