Over the years I have had a number of dinners (and sandwich lunches) at the cafe and they have all been good or excellent. The last dinner was only several days ago. There were four of us, it was just a day before the Cafe closed for the Summer. (N'tucket seasons are notoriously short.) I had a great corn gazpacho... More

The sandwiches were delicious, we had fresh roasted turkey & turkey salad w/their special dressing & toppings in a comfortable very casual setting. It had a lively fun feel.

Just the best food and service anywhere you'll find. The reservation process is a bit daunting. The food is delicious and fresh. Seafood prepared with locally obtained ingredients astonishes the palette in a wonderful way.

Stayed with the friends in Sconset and were invited for dinner. Convenience was a huge plus, as it is only few minutes from the house we stayed. Unassuming exterior, but nice and cozy inside. It is small, maybe can serve up to 30 people, the kitchen is right behind the counter. Nicely decorated by black and white photographs. The service... More

Traveling by bike we rode from Wauwinet to Sconset with our bottle of Pinot Noir from Cisco Vineyards, a stop earlier in the day and had a marvelous dinner: two special salads and two appetizers. The mussels were amazing and the crab cakes the best ever!

We were looking for a place to grab a quick lunch while waiting for the Wave bus into town. There were so many choices on the menu, and the sandwiches are made to order. Make sure you bring a friend because you will need to share! So big and tasty. Throw in a bag of chips and some drinks and... More

Fabulous menu with specials that made your mouth water as everything here was delectable! Love the great service, knowledgeable waiters and friendly attention to every detail. Went back 3 more times while on island! Must save room for dessert as it's always a selection of delights!

We made reservation at one of our favorite Nantucket restaurants over 3 weeks ago. They called Sunday to confirm our reservation for Tuesday. We had a table for five - another couple wanted to join us and called earlier in day to add to table - they were told they could not so my friends made other arrangements - then... More

The Sconset Cafe is one of our favorite Island restaurants. Although small and a little noisy the food makes up for those shortcomings. Go with the Cafe Salad or Crab Cakes to start and try the Salmon or if you want some beef the Burger is always good. There is a $7 corkage fee per person unless you buy the... More
