Ok, this is a "locals" place so leave your tourist self at the door. The food is terrific. Probably the best breakfast place you will find on BI. Breakfast sandwiches are awesome. We always go there before getting on the ferry. The pace is...well...Island pace. Sit back, enjoy your coffee, read the BI Times and enjoy the planes taking off... More

Tasty food and in copious amounts, served quickly and effortlessly by one waitress who handled the entire area alone with a cheerfulness that was refreshing. It was fun to watch a number of small planes land, the occupants all piling into the diner for Sunday breakfast, also. The place was soon jammed.....but but expertly served. I think they are used...

We had a great island tour and asked to be let off at the airport to have breakfast at Bethany's based on trip advisor reviews. It is a very small busy place so we had to wait a little which we did not mind as we were not in any hurry. We did get 2 seats at the counter. We... More

Food is average, but atmosphere is wonderful. Mingle with locals, or let family have fun watching planes come and go.......

This is a great place to rub shoulders with locals for breakfast or lunch. While the only dining establishment at the small general aviation airport, the food is very good, the pricing fair, and the atmosphere fun and nostalgic. Highly recommended for a full breakfast!

Flew into Block Island (BID) early, 07:15 in a Cessna 172; Bethany's Airport Diner had been open since 06:00. The aroma of pancakes on the grill greeted us as my brother, a friend, and I deplaned. Just a 15 minute flight from the Connecticut coast, Bethany's is the perfect place to have breakfast and meet with other pilots. I had... More

What a way to start the day!! B-Fast at bethany's is one way to get your day off to a good start. Nothing like hot oatmeal on a hot day. then go jump in the pcean and swim.
