Just had breakfast at Centre Street Bistro, and it was so delicious I am writing this. I had the breakfast burrito covered in generous fresh salsa and served with perfectly seasoned black beans. My husband had the Nantucket breakfast which is the choice for those wanting pretty much everything on the menu. Service was excellent as always. Art on all... More

Four and a Half Stars. Had a fantastic dinner here last night. I've got to say that this is the first time we've eaten here in 15 years since we moved off the island. When we saw this was open during a quick Mid week stay we had to come back and try again as it had always been one... More

Cozy and hidden bistro with excellent food! My business partner and I stopped in on a Thursday evening for dinner. We enjoyed the pre-fixe dinner of a mixed green salad with goat cheese & candied walnuts, beef stroganoff, and finished with pound cake topped with vanilla ice cream & salted caramel sauce. Yum! It is BYOB which we didn't know... More

Three of us enjoyed dinner here during the Christmas stroll weekend. The restaurant was offering a pre fixe menu which consisted of four courses and each course had two or three options. OMG! Every course was better than the last!!! We stuffed ourselves and were in a food coma! The restaurant is very small. I counted the number of seats.....there... More

Although very small inside, we were able to sit all six together. The breakfast was fantastic and lots of food given. I'd definitely recommend this place before leaving the island.

I would recommend this place for lunch more than dinner. The "dining room" is the smallest of any place I have ever eaten in. It's the size of a small bedroom, with a handful of tables set close together. No tablecloths, very casual and informal. The service is usually done by a single waitress, due to the small size. It...
