We loved the food and it was the perfect end to our trip. I wish we had tried it soon and would have definitely gone back! The accommodated my Celiac diet and were very aware of their ingredients. The food was fresh and delicious!

My " go to place" for breakfast or lunch on ACK. Good and healthy breakfast menu. On my recent visit to the Fog i ordered a cheese omelette with caramelized onions. Served promptly and it was very good. The breakfast potatoes were tasty. The coffee kept coming and the service was great. Expect a long wait during the season especially... More

Great stop for lunch. Had the burrito bowl with the chicken and it was good and filling. My friend had the tacos and enjoyed them.

We enjoyed the food and had good service, but it was not one of the best meals we ever had. It was interesting to watch the people as we waited for out food and then ate it. A wide variety of ages.

This is our go-to, never-miss place to eat on Nantucket when we're on island. Owner is super friendly, booths are cozy, and food is consistently delicious with generous portions. There are dozens of great choices on Nantucket but whenever I ask my husband and kids where they want to eat, it's always Fog Island. Lots of options for vegetarians like... More

We went to Fog Island Cafe twice in one weekend, it is that good. The food is excellent, service is friendly and attentive, and we were lucky on both occasions to be able to get in without a wait, even during the busy Stroll weekend. We had the avocado tuna melt both times, and friends ordered a burger and a... More

I visited during the Nantucket Stroll, so the cafe was very busy. We gave our names and then walked around for a bit. We were a party of 8 so expected to wait longer than we did. Once inside, the staff was very friendly. Everything was super speedy without feeling rushed. I got the pancakes and they were delicious! Everyone... More

Cute little diner-like breakfast spot, filled with a combination of tourists and regular locals. solid food, solid service. Get there early - it gets mobbed quickly.
