The Scottish Bakehouse in Vineyard Haven offers sweet treats, cool drinks, coffee, snacks and more. This local hangout is a popular place to grab a cup of coffee or a breakfast burrito in the morning or pick up a cupcake made with organic, natural ingredients. If you are more interested in gluten-free and vegetarian options, there are plenty of items to choose from no matter what time of day it is.
A more sedate version of its big brother, the wildly popular Black Dog Tavern, the café version of this island icon exudes a warmer, less manic atmosphere. This is a good choice for a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it is a relaxed spot where you can read the newspaper. You are more likely to mingle with locals here than at other places, though many of them might stay away during summer months. For breakfast, the café serves hearty French toast and egg dishes. For lunch, try the unique sandwiches, pizzas and pastas. Black Dog offers nightly dinner specials, too.
Artcliff Diner features a farm to table concept and fresh seasonal cuisine. The restaurant is decorated in a bright, kitschy manner with a relaxed, yet lively vibe. Very popular as a breakfast spot, you may find yourself in a cue as early as 7am. Diners can enjoy dishes like the Southwestern Flannel Hash, Frosted Flakes French Toast, Truffle French Fries and Smoked Brisket Eggs Benedict. The restaurant is small and cozy, so large groups could opt for a take-away option as opposed to dining in. For additional details, contact the restaurant.
Martha's Vineyard Gourmet Café & Bakery has been a very popular local favorite since it opened in 2001. Apple fritters, cookies, éclairs, pies, cream puffs, and cannoli area made in the bakery’s kitchen, and the wedding cakes are extraordinary. While the baked goods are prepared, between 7:30p and 1a, the bakery’s famous donuts are sold through the back door–hence their name, “back door donuts.”
