The egg sandwich with avocado for breakfast was wonderful and there was no line to wait. I had the lobster roll during our last trip and it was very good too.

I'm a hard grader and this is just a corner coffee shop. It's fine for what it is. We grabbed some hotdogs and drinks here on our way to Chappy. The service was a little slow, but it was crowded and first week for the summer hires, so I'm sure they'll get faster. Otherwise, the hot dogs were good and... More

After overrated coffee at Espresso Love and the cafe Behind the Bookstore, MacPhail's delivered just what we needed: good strong espresso in a latte and a cappuccino without requiring extra shots to get a robust coffee drink. No place to sit in a garden like the other spots, but you can take your cuppa out to the waterfront across the... More

Cute place for a cool beverage or a quick snack. Food is good and the cool drinks are excellent! McPhails is right in the center of the Hub-bub of Edgartown , so the "locay" is great. Staff was a young , a little unfocused and busy talking with each other rather than tending to the task at hand! But, I... More

If you can get seating or want to go sit by the water then this is a good choice. Good coffees and breakfast sandwiches - with guacamole!

I enjoyed a few breakfasts at MacPhail's and they were very good. The choices, however, were pretty limited. That can be good or bad since what they make is good....I prefer that to more choices that are poorly made or inconsistent. It is also very small with limited seating so I would suggest taking your choices and heading outside, perhaps... More

This was our favourite place to buy and share a sandwich. Huge portions but delicious. Didn't try the coffee, wish we had as there was a good selection of Fair Trade coffees too. Friendly service. No complaints!

We were in search of the best lobster roll in Edgartown, MA and we just found it in this small, corner cafe with only a few tables and chairs. The bun was toasted with the right amount of crunch....but not too much, the lobster serving was generous with large chunks of lobster meat, and the seasoning was just right...not too... More

We had coffee and tea, sat at s eindow and watched the world go by. The service was friendly and help full. Atmosphere was just what you would expect out of a coffee shop.
