  1. Espresso Love in Edgartown

Open year-round, this is a place where some of the regulars are celebrities, so don’t be surprised if you spot a familiar face. Here you can enjoy a breakfast burrito or a spinach, tomato and feta quiche. There’s also a market that sells ground or whole bean coffee—Colombian and Kenyan beans are combined to blend the perfect cup. And don’t forget to pick up a t-shirt to commemorate your stay.

  1. MacPhail’s Corner Café in Edgartown

Enjoy lattes in a variety of gourmet flavors—Caramel Mocha, Vanilla, or Toasted Marshmallow. If you want something stronger, grab a double shot of espresso, a cappuccino, or any of their other delicious coffees, from mild to dark roast. There are even gourmet leaf teas for the tea drinkers in your family. And if you’re hungry, MacPhail’s serves breakfast and lunch, too. For breakfast, they make fresh muffins every day. Or if you prefer, get a bacon, egg and cheese on a toasted, buttered bagel, all bagels baked fresh daily.

  1. Dock Street Coffee Shop in Edgartown

You know it’s a good sign when a place is packed with locals. Visitors to this coffee shop call it the best diner or “little gem” on the island. They serve breakfast standards in a fun, old-time counter atmosphere—a vintage-style coffee poster reads: “If you’re not shaking, you need another cup!” The coffee keeps pouring while you watch your breakfast being prepared right there. It’s a welcoming place to go and listen to the locals swap stories.
