We love Fog Island Cafe!! The food is great and the staff is friendly! The Huevos Rancheros are awesome, as are the Eggs Benedict and the pancakes! Although it's busy, the tables turn over quickly so the wait is usually reasonable!! Highly recommend for a good breakfast!!

Holiday stroll weekend!! We got off the ferry and walked straight to Fog Island Cafe for breakfast. so hard to decide what to get. Everything sounds delicious. The trail cakes ( granola and bananas) were great. Enjoyed the cozy atmosphere.

We have been going to the island for many years and look forward to breakfast at The Fog Island Cafe. We love the food and the atmosphere. Their coffee is excellent and the food is great. Would not go to the island without a trip here. Just bought a coffee cup yesterday.....:-)

We walked over to Fog Island Cafe from the whaling museum. It was a nice way to break up our museum visit and enjoy a good lunch. On a chilly November day, the bowl of clam chowder and grilled sandwich was perfect. Prices were reasonable.

The locals are wicked over protected of this establishment, maybe because the owner is well loved and known for his keen work ethics, and his love for his island. And I wish I could be more positive. Islanders are very protective of their favorites, and devastating to their "not-so-favorite". It seems this place is more of a breakfast stop and... More

Stopped in for breakfast and really enjoyed it. I had the "Buenos Dias" breakfast sandwich, which was delicious. I particularly appreciate the option of black beans instead of home fries. They were well seasoned and tasty. My companion had a traditional breakfast with sausage, eggs and home fries and really liked it. We'll be back.

We often go to Nantucket during the shoulder and off seasons, and during this time of year, there aren't a lot of choices for breakfast on the island. They have a very diverse breakfast menu and everything is great. Their omelets are my favorite, and my wife likes their super fluffy pancakes. Fog Island Cafe is great any time of... More

We live on Nantucket and this is one of our regular lunch spots to meet friends. Great soups in the fall. Great sandwiches always. Convenient location. Great waiters and waitresses.

My wife and I had a delicious lunch here. We ordered a half turkey sandwich with the soup of the day. Very good. Fog Island looks like a local favorite. We will come again.
