We've been going to this place since I was a little girl (I'm 32 now) and it is as homey and fun as it every was. (Although I do miss the old location where you could watch the donuts being made.) It is a real locals spot on the island, but that doesn't mean that the people are unfriendly to tourists. To the contrary, the service is always friendly and very accomodating of kids -- they even have a basket of communal toys by the front door. Classic breakfats choices include the homemade donuts -- how I miss them! -- and the blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup. They also do bacon just right. Don't come to Nantucket without visiting the Downyflake!

This spot used to be near Main Street in town but a fire destroyed the location. Even if you don't have a car, make it a point to get a Downyflake breakfast at least once while on the island. The food is standard breakfast fare but the donuts and blueberry crumb squares are out of this world.
