The Downyflake is a Nantucket tradition. Conveniently located in the mid-island area, the restaurant is easily accessed by bicycle, car, or NRTA bus. We are known for the big doughnut sign outside, and the delicious flaky doughnuts inside. We are a family-friendly restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and daily specials in a classic diner atmosphere. For over eighty-eight years now, we have been proudly satisfying the appetites of Nantucket locals and visitors to the Island.
The Downyflake is Nantucket’s only classic, diner-style eatery. The Downyflake has both both DINE-IN and TAKE-OUT service. We serve Breakfast and Lunch. We are way more than just a coffee shop; our menu features fresh squeezed juices, hearty breakfast fare, homemade soups, fresh salads and deli sandwiches. Our Chef’s daily lunch special board features traditional comfort food entrees. Our specials are posted daily on Facebook. You can also follow us on Instagram.
