This place truly represents what Martha's Vineyard is about. It's a great place to meet people and experience the vineyard. Best to get the latest donut recommendations while waiting in line, just talk to people around you. The apple fritters are the tradition, but try other stuff too. The hot chocolate on chocolate donuts are my personal favorite. I've had better donuts, but the back door experience is quite charming and an important tradition for islanders. The town recently tried to close it up, but the islanders prevailed in preserving the back door experience (in much the same way the islanders have prevailed in preserving the overall charm and feel of the vineyard). I highly recommend this place to experience!
