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

We dropped in to Menemsha to catch up with friends staying there. They recomended us to Beetlebung to pick up drinks and sandwiches for a picnic lunch. What a good idea. The sandwiches were hearty and made fresh to order and the espresso was everything it should be... rich and strong with a hint of bitter lingering. All in all... More

Beetlebung was my favorite Vineyard Haven coffee spot with great sandwiches but it closed after the 2011 summer season. The owner now has a coffee shop in Menemsha but the address in Vineyard Haven currently shown on Trip Advisor is no longer correct. The reviews of the Vineyard Haven location are still valid for the Menemsha location but who goes... More

Terrific breakfast sandwiches and unusual bagel combos. Love the bagel with cream cheese, smoked bluefish and onion. Only issues are limited seating and NO BATHROOM!

We visited Beetlebung in both VH and Menemsha and love he Menemsha bagel for a late breakfast. A pretty decent bagel, with cream cheese, onion, capers and smoked bluefish. Just perfect with a good cup of coffee or tea and a sunny day. Be warned that the view from the picnic table out front is nothing special, but there are... More

Beetlebung's panini go well beyond the normal range in terms of ingredients. Fairly priced, convenient location, good (non-alcoholic) drinks, indoor & outdoor eating. We always go there when we visit the Vineyard.

I really wanted to love this coffee shop. It's so close to everything and has a good vibe. We came here maybe three times during our stay on the island. Their coffee wasn't great but their espresso drinks are better, though quality was inconsistent from day to day. Their baked goods selection was limited but good. They are totally overpriced....

Beetlebung has great coffee with excellent ambiance! What a great outdoor seating area. The food was wonderful. We really enjoyed our visit here. My husband and I literally ran from OB to Beetlebung Coffee House in Edgartown, in the middle of a heat wave, and it was well worth it!! What a great place to unwind and relax. We highly... More
