Fresh and sometimes warm donuts - the chocolate and maple frosted (think honey dipped with a slight maple flavor) are very tasty. Also, they have daily breakfast and lunch specials. If you want to order the biscuits and gravy (so yummy) you have to get...More

Overall, we had a great time and wonderful food while at the Downyflake. It was our first time on the island and we kept hearing that this was the place to go from the locals. The doughnuts were great and the service was also good!...More

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!
