This is the place to be for a great breakfast. Varied home style food. Good servers. Pleasant atmosphere. Long lines during weekends. But they seem to have a whimsical open schedule. Not to count on and so wart of disrespectful of the Vineyard. But when she decides to be open, great enjoyment, even with limited parking and long lines.

Good, fresh food, well prepared. Always a few creative choices on the board each day. Great for breakfast or lunch. In the summer there is also the Art Cliff truck for light fare in the evening. The Art Cliff is an iconic place, small but cozy, with counter space if you're eating alone or don't want to wait for a... More

This is one of the nicest little restaurants on the Vineyard. Do yourself a favor and go in for a great breakfast or lunch when you see the open flag flying out front. And say hi to the owner Gina. A super sweetheart. She loves feeding people!

We often do not go out for breakfast, but this past Saturday we did! We chose to go the Artcliff Diner in Vineyard Haven. The menu is amazing! There were so many choices and they all looked delicious! I chose the Green Monsta- and it was memorable! The tortillas were perfect and the egg and spinach scramble was equally as... More

Just love this place. Sometimes a fair wait to get in (yes even off season), but worth it every time. Great wait staff, fabulous food, and fun!

Even in the off season ( should say the less crowded season) you may encounter a wait but not long and you definitely need to know of alternate parking areas (stop and shop - 2 hr parking) - this is a popular place. I love the atmosphere, the servers and the food - order of those can be changed. It... More

This little diner was right across the street from our motel so it was an obvious choice even before friends recommended it. I got the blueberry and honey crepe and two scrambled eggs. My husband got 3 eggs over medium and a big bowl of oatmeal. My crepe was fantastic and cooked really well. It was a little pricey but... More

The French toast here was phenomenal! Of all of the sweet items we had for breakfast all week, the French toast here was my favorite! It got pretty crowded, and rightfully so, so I would recommend going early in order to avoid a long wait! I would definitely recommend this as a good breakfast spot!

What a fab spot! This was close to where we were staying so we just walked there Thursday to see that they were closed, but would be open on Friday. We went back Friday morning and put our name in to wait for a table. About 10 minutes later we were sat and quickly asked what we'd like to drink.... More
