We first came in here because the shop also has the full merchandise of a typical modern drug store (including Boston and New York newspapers) but in an old-time space, including the lunch counter with stools occupied by friendly locals. The food offerings were also...More

Old fashioned soda counter with the round swivel chairs and employees grilling up a tasty grilled cheese sandwich with thick cheddar and fresh white sourdough bread. They only take cash, so be prepared, but it was a great atmosphere and really good for just a...More

We had dirty dogs, sandwiches and fountain sodas. They also have great gift/tourist items for reasonable prices.

So we are strolling down Main Street in downtown Nantucket when we come upon this pharmacy. It is one of these 'old time', from days gone by type of drug stores, which from its looks has been there for decades. Wouldn't you know that it...More

This store is extremely charming with their little luncheonette in the front that has a 50's style counter and stools where you can have a hot dog with sauerkraut and mustard or a sandwich with coffee. It is a great place to grab a quick...More
