“Great place to get a sandwich in town.”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Very good sandwiches, muffins and coffee. Pleasant staff and very convenient location. Prices are reasonable but unfortunately they don't accept credit cards.

“Great Curried Chicken”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Ran into plenty of cash-only businesses like this one in Nantucket which is a little off-putting these days. That aside, had a very nice curried chicken sandwich with cashews and raisins. Nice small chunks, not mush. Nice bread. Plenty of cold and hot beverages. Actually we gave up the fine dining on Nantucket after a disappointing and expensive experience but found some great sandwiches in very casual spots which actually we enjoyed more.

“They ran out of bread!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

Their website says their hours are "7 - 5:30 or until we run out of bread!"
They're not kidding. We got there at 3:15 on Labor Day to grab some sandwiches to take on the ferry home. We stood in line for 15 minutes. When we got to the front of the line, they told us they were out of bread. I was disappointed that they ran out of bread but I was annoyed that they let us wait in line that long before they turned us away. I mean at some point, when you grab your last loaf, don't you do the decent thing and tip off your potential customers (most of whom you can assume are killing their last previous few minutes before boarding the ferry) that if they're hungry, they should go somewhere else?
This place is crowded and slow, but their sandwiches looked good.

“best sandwiches on the island”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

simply put, if you need lunch for the beach or just craving a sandwich, there is only one choice, provisions. been going there for years - they have a great selection of unique offerings and twists on conventional sandwiches. best ingredients, big portions. very affordable and convenient. can be a line, but totally worth it. turkey terrific is a must try.

“Best sandwiches on Nantucket”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Provisions offers gourmet sandwiches (try the Italian or spicy egg salad!) from their location on Straight Wharf. The place is often busy so calling in your order for pick up usually saves time and hassle.
