Cool coffee shop in the heart of Nantucket (India between Federal and Centre). Way better than any Starbucks - good way to start your day: get a paper, breakfast pastry, and a latte... hard to beat..

This coffee shop is cute and quick. The coffee was fresh and they have a ton of flavors if you like to add that to your coffee. I stopped here every day while on vacation!

We had lunch here twice, my spouse enjoyed his sandwiches and I enjoyed my flatbread. It can be hard to find a place to sit if you hit the main crowd, but the food is delicious.
