Start your day off right at Martha’s Vineyard Gourmet Café and Bakery, located next to the post office.

This place also makes stunning cakes for special occasions, so if you’re on the island to celebrate an anniversary or accomplishment, order a cake to celebrate.

As a bonus, if you are in the area between 7:30 pm and 12:58 am, you can get breakfast again by going to the bakery’s “Back Door” for donuts, cinnamon rolls and another of those tasty apple fritters.

If you’re planning a day out of doors, stop by Skinny’s Fat Sandwiches and pick up some awesome sandwiches to take with you. They are open at 8 am to make it easy for you to pick up a fresh lunch on your way. In addition to a wide variety of classic deli sandwiches, they also have a series of healthy wraps and salads to choose from. Of course, no picnic lunch would be complete without both healthy (watermelon) and sinful (brownies, cookies, etc.) desserts, and don’t forget to check out their daily specials.

Another great place to grab any meal to go is at Tony’s Market, which has delicious options for breakfast, lunch or dinner to go, as well as whatever groceries you might need when planning a meal on your boat or at your backyard grill.
