“Teriffic lunch in an unpretentious cafe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

On a warm August afternoon, my wife, son, and I got a table at once from the cheerful host. Our waitress was there at once, and was always around - though never hovering. Our sandwiches were fresh and interesting, without trying too hard to be different. The touch of sprouts, for example, livened up a turkey sandwich, and black beans were a nice alternative to the usual chips or fries. The menu is not large, but for something in between a quick bite and a leisurely lunch, in the center of Nantucket, this is the place!

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I went here with my boyfriend and brother. The food was good and everyone was full. It was a little expensive but was to be expected given the island.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I would recommend the fog fish cake Benedict ! Perfect. My husband had the bagel sandwich with linguica and he raved about it! Service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only downside is it gets crowded and noisy.

“Great little cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

My boyfriend and I ate at Fog Island twice while in Nantucket for a week and the food/service was excellent. The cheese and mushroom omelet I ordered both days was HUGE and stuffed with goodies, while the eggs benedict my boyfriend opted for was gobbled up in seconds flat. It's a cozy little place with a very friendly staff and prices are reasonable for the island. It's also exceptionally popular so if you're not an early riser you will be facing a pretty long line! We admittedly didn't try any other breakfast spot in the area but after our first trip there we had no desire to. Highly recommend!
