Nantucket's only local coffee roaster operates this Coffeehouse/Cafe. Center of town, fast service, fabulous coffee (love their Iced Coffee and Dirty Chai) brewed from freshly roasted beans. YUM!

We visited two mornings in a row since a voucher was included with our stay - and each was worse than the other! The staff is borderline surly, they could not use their own ordering/payment system and the food choices were tasteless. The coffee was decent, so that was the only positive! Their excuse for a bagel was worse than... More

This small, homey cafe is a great antidote to Nantucket's hurley-burley. Friendly, helpful staff serve up a delicious cup of coffee and a tempting selection of sweet treats. Free Wi-fi, too!

The coffee was delicious and pastries were good. They have egg sandwiches and open at 6am so we loved it.

While I still prefer their quirky old location, the coffee is still as good and it is nice to be able to find a seat.

I would definitely recommend this if you just want a bagel or egg sandwich without the breakfast place scene. No inattentive waitstaff and overpriced/average omelettes here!! Just a good cup of joe and fresh baked goods to get you going!!

Lattes and pastries. Good service, busy place. We visited several times over the course of our five days in town. Our favorite coffee shop in ACK!

Stopped by this morning for coffee. Had latte. So good. Got a sausage egg cheese English muffin. Very good. I recommend this place highly.

I think I chose poorly here. The breakfast sandwich had been in a warmer and it made the English muffin tough and dry. I'd try the pastries instead. Comfortable place to sit and have a coffee.

Fast service. The Bean is my first stop every morning when I'm on Nantucket. To Go or comfortably seated, their move to India Street was a really good one.
