They grilled the blueberry muffin! Add the egg white scramble with veggies and a single pancake with blueberries and you have the fixings of a perfect breakfast. Don’t forget to get a donut. They have daily donut specials.

We arrived at 7am Sunday as the door was being unlocked and there was already a line forming. By the time we finished the restaurant was full and so was the parking lot. Two of us had the raisin French toast. One had eggs with...More

The atmosphere of the restaurant was great! The setting and the things that you will need for the meals are all in your table. The food was good but nothing fancy or to an extent that would make it unforgettable.

The perfect stop to jump off your diet for a while. Hard to describe what is best because everything I've tried is great....pancakes, donuts....

We visited twice for excellent breakfasts. Much more than a donut shop. Hard to pass up their freshly baked biscuits and donuts to supplement whatever you order. Atmosphere is like a diner with super friendly staff.

Have to stop by Downyflake at least once when you are in Nantucket. Good choices for breakfast fare. Lot of locals eat here. Nice wait staff. Reasonable.

Florence wanted coconut. Heather needed a blueberry scone. All I wanted was coffee, but once I saw the menu, I knew my diet was done for. This is a great great affordable friendly fun place for breakfast. It's no place for a diet. Just eat!
