“Fog Island Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had decided to walk to museum owned antique sites, on the island, and so we stopped in at Fog Island Cafe, and not only were they pleasant, and was the food excellent, they actually put together sandwiches that we requested which were not on the menu.

“Great Iced Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The veggie egg sandwich is fantastic and their iced coffee may be one of the best on the island. Expect a line on Saturdays and Sundays during peak season. Little known fact - this place is BYOB

“Awesome breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The breakfast menu is amazing, with so many great selections you want to be really hungry when you get there! The food was delicious and the service was really good. I enjoyed the Veggie Tuck, and he liked the Morning Remedy very much. You'll come out of any fog the night before may have thrown you into!

“In the Fog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We came off the fast ferry early in the morning, skipped past the first few eateries and tried out the Fog Island just by chance. It looked less of a tourist destination and we were pleased with the service and food. The place soon filled up and that seemed to confirm our initial reaction that we came to the right place. My bowl of porridge was a meal unto itself and the muffins were local and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. Good way to start the day.

“Small but not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

A clerk in a shop recommended Fog Island to us. It is small but very nice. I had the soup and 1/2 sandwich-Hungarian beef stew and a chicken wrap. Both were excellent. My husband had the fish and crab sandwich-he loved it. The service was efficient. We did not think it was expensive, considering that everything on Nantucket has to come over by boat. We were so glad the clerk told us to eat here.
