Downyflake was our first return to Nantucket food. Their donuts are unlike anyone's. Best ever!!! We were surprised that they weren't served warm and fresh as they used to be!! Bring that back! There's not a bad choice here for a wonderful breakfast!

We walked 1 mile to have breakfast. My husband had blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup which he enjoyed. I had one egg but chose a chocolate donut as my toast. Good choice!

If you don't want a precious, pricey breakfast, Downyflake is your best bet. Good food and best donuts in America!

Enjoyed the delicious flavors of this authentic breakfast joint. I don't like that they charged extra for maple syrup, but considering that everything on Nantucket is expensive, it was a pretty good deal. Very fine doughnuts. Overall positive experience.

First of all, everyone calls it The 'Flake. I do take-out more often than not and I always eat a donut or two while walking out the door. Nothing like a warm donut- plain, sugar, coconut or chocolate. They serve breakfast and lunch only. I...More
