While vacationing on Nantucket, the last thing on your mind should be grocery shopping. And with a plethora of dining out choices on the island, getting that most important meal of the day, breakfast, is a piece of cake. We at N Magazine bring you our 3 best for breakfast list so that you don’t have to worry about one bite!
First up, Centre Street Bistro. If you are looking for a casual, sit down breakfast in Town, look no further. These breakfasts are hearty, filling and absolutely delicious. Their eggs benedict will have you drooling, the homemade granola will give you the energy you need to tackle a day of sightseeing, and their potato pancake side dish will have you wondering why you don’t start every day that way. Take a seat outside and people watch as you enjoy your meal… and don’t be surprised when passersby starting peaking at your plate with envy!
If you are someone who is constantly on the move and who doesn’t want to waste a second of your beautiful, sunny day on Nantucket, Lemon Press is calling your name. Lemon Press calls its home 29 Centre Street, and this relatively new little gem is a healthy addition to Nantucket’s breakfast and lunch scene. Can’t function without that essential cup of coffee? Opt for the Coffee and Cacao Smoothie, which is blended with cold brewed coffee and a banana to give you that extra boost of energy. Not typically a pancake person? No worries, their gluten-free waffle is definitely Instagram worthy. Make it sweet or savory, with your choice of 3 toppings! And if you aren’t in the waffle mood, the avocado toast will take your morning to a whole new level. These fresh and healthy options will have you feeling ready to take on your day.
There’s something about breakfast sandwiches that just make life so easy… and so good. Provisions is our go-to breakfast sandwich spot, and one that doesn’t typically come to people’s minds when they think breakfast on Nantucket. If you want to be satisfied both hunger and happiness wise, their signature breakfast sandwich will do the trick: bacon, egg and cheese on an English muffin with Provisions’ signature chipotle tomato sauce. (By the way, this sauce will change your view on breakfast sandwiches for life!) Add avocado and… there’s no turning back. If you really want to push your limit, order a side of banana bread and you’ll be on your way into the best food coma of your life. Top it off with an iced coffee on the side and your day will be made.
With lines rounding every corner out of eateries on Nantucket, you better believe these meals are worth every penny (and the wait). The island is fortunate to have chefs from around the globe who come here to make some of the best food around, just to make us all happy and keep our cravings satisfied! So make sure to give these three local spots a try next time you’re waking up on island time.
