My wife and I spent a day on Nantucket and went to Petticoat Row Bakery after getting off the ferry. My wife had a cinnamon bun and I had a blueberry muffin. They were both delicious. The coffee was very good and they had a large selection of teas to choose from. The shop was very clean and comfortable. I... More

The Morning Bun is the reason to come here! I was advised this by the employees who served me, but, it was true for sure. The dough is a cross between a cinnamon bun and a rolled type of donut. The bakers know how to provide enough cinnamon sugar with a light dough that just melts in your mouth. A... More

They have good cakes and pies that you can special order ahead of time. Also, solid cupcakes and cookies. Good place to enjoy an iced coffee and treat - they have couches, tables, chairs set up inside. Be prepared for the "attitude" of the staff - this seems to be another place on Nantucket that doesn't appreciate it's customers. We... More

Excellent biscuit sandwiches, quiche and strong coffee. We ate here every day. Next time will try the apple tart and a scone.

Delicious iced coffee, light fluffy coconut macarons, cupcakes, muffins, bars. Comfy furniture inside, or grab a bench on center street. Not fancy, but delicious! Fall off the wagon and indulge!

Having arrived by fast ferry from Hyannis at 1pm and then spent two hours on a guided tour of this lovely island we needed light refreshments to keep us going. Well worth the walk to find this very good class bakery. Immaculate premises both inside and out. Several delightful tables for on-site consumption. Speciality coffees and a good range of... More

We were recently visiting with friends on the island, one of whom decided he wanted to make a new dessert for all of us to try out. One of the ingredients he needed was coconut macaroon cookies. Now Nantucket is a pretty small place, and coconut macaroons aren't exactly an everyday item. On a whim, and after exhausting all the... More

Fabulous homemade biscuit loaded with plenty of egg, bacon, and cheese. Cute little bakery. Pastry case looked delicious but I didn't partake.
