Everything that is Nantucket to us is found at the 'Sconset Cafe. Away from the crowds, excellent food, exceptional attention to service. Buy a bottle of wine at the store next door, and be treated to the supremely fresh food and over-the-top friendly owner and staff at this peaceful gem.

The perfect Sconset style restaurant for the eastern-most tip of the island. The food is fresh and lively, and the atmosphere is the closest to a neighborhood feeling you're likely to find. Charming, with ever-changing exhibits of local artists, this BYO (with package store next to it) makes for a relaxing evening (and breakfast) on "island time".

Restaurant, Casual - Nantucket
Hidden away on the eastern end of the island, the Sconset Café isn’t fancy and serves no alcohol (has a BYOB setup), but it’s got one of the best little menus around. Entrées change often, and depending on the season might include salmon in saffron-tomato fish broth with ciabatta or grilled chicken with garlic and scallion mashed potatoes. If you’re fortunate, the knockout lemon tart with homemade lime cream will be available. You’d be wise to order it, even if you think you’re stuffed.
Cozy up or take out!: This place rocks! Cute and cozy eat in restaurant which is PACKED in the evenings... and rightly so... walk down, make a reservation, they'll call you when your table's ready... I'm telling you...this is a fantastic evening... BYO folks! grab a bottle next door at the "Bookstore" (no kidding) or bring from home. Take out it excellent too... Good folks... candles on the table, soft jazz, artwork on the walls... could anything be sweeter?
