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.

Sweet baked goods and cakes with lots of icing are featured along with french bread and bagels. Some coffee available but the cappuccino machine broken when we visited

Pre-ordered a birthday cake but probably should not have given 3 days notice. Cake was drying out when we got it, so I'm guessing it was baked the day we ordered it and it sat in a cooler for a day or two. Quite disappointing. Next time, order the day before so the product does not have time to "age."

Cute place with a lot of variety, but nothing we had really blew our doors off. The coconut cupcake had an excess of too-sweet icing, and the Chocolate peanut butter cupcake didn't have a great cake texture. The highlight was a sweet-savory Earl Grey shortbread cookie. Also, the staff was not as friendly as people have been at other venues.

First stop of the morning for the best baguette in town! They sell out fast as do their real Parisian style croissants and New England muffins, sticky buns and more. Really honest coffee too. Daily drop ins for treats and snacks later in the day. Amazing cookies!

Stopped in while strolling solo this afternoon around downtown Nantucket. The place looked cute and I needed a small snack. I love pumpkin as much as chocolate, so I spent my last $4 in cash on a pumpkin muffin from a lethargic, slack-jawed foreign employee. I sat down and started to eat the muffin which ended up being chock full... More

Charming spot right in the middle of everything. Great place for morning coffee or afternoon tea and pastry. Really has a quaint and local feel to it

I don't get this place. It's smack in the middle of town and I walk by it daily. But I don't understand why the shelves are filled with baked items when they're closed at night. Most bake shops bake daily and start with empty shelves. And most bakery's smell of freshly baked treats. But not Petticoat. I know some people... More
