PROUDLY SATISFYING THE APPETITES OF NANTUCKET LOCALS AND VISITORS FOR 85 YEARS
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-five years now, we have been proudly satisfying the appetites of Nantucket locals and visitors to the Island.
