Overall, we had a great time and wonderful food while at the Downyflake. It was our first time on the island and we kept hearing that this was the place to go from the locals. The doughnuts were great and the service was also good!...More

Best place for breakfast or brunch on the island. Donuts are the best.......ask for warm ones. Great value and worth the wait

Downyflake was our first return to Nantucket food. Their donuts are unlike anyone's. Best ever!!! We were surprised that they weren't served warm and fresh as they used to be!! Bring that back! There's not a bad choice here for a wonderful breakfast!

We walked 1 mile to have breakfast. My husband had blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup which he enjoyed. I had one egg but chose a chocolate donut as my toast. Good choice!

There is no question that Downyflake is one of my favorite breakfast places anywhere. While the menu is pretty basic and straightforward, the blueberry pancakes are not to be missed. Make sure you have cash since credit cards are not accepted.

Great donuts here - not a huge selection but you don;t really need it with their offerings. We loved the chocolate, sugar and coconut.

If you don't want a precious, pricey breakfast, Downyflake is your best bet. Good food and best donuts in America!

Enjoyed the delicious flavors of this authentic breakfast joint. I don't like that they charged extra for maple syrup, but considering that everything on Nantucket is expensive, it was a pretty good deal. Very fine doughnuts. Overall positive experience.
