This is is one of the few places in Nantucket that, a vistor from the UK, would call a coffee shop. We visited everday whilst on the island for our daily cappuccino fix. The drinks were always well made with a good amount of foam.

We had lunch at the Bean while in Nantucket and highly recommend this place. It is a small place but the food is of excellent quality. You can have a wonderful lunch at this place for a quite affordable price. Not to be missed

Cool coffee shop in the heart of Nantucket (India between Federal and Centre). Way better than any Starbucks - good way to start your day: get a paper, breakfast pastry, and a latte... hard to beat..

This coffee shop is cute and quick. The coffee was fresh and they have a ton of flavors if you like to add that to your coffee. I stopped here every day while on vacation!
