“Very popular place for breakfast! About a 1/2 hour walk from our cottage. Get there as early as possible, definitely before 8 am.”

American Restaurant

“This is the restaurant the birthed the Black Dog t-shirt. Large portions, great view of the harbor, feels like your in an old wooden boat. Food is better quality in some other places but this place has a long history, a great setting and a spectacular view. You won't go away hungry.”

Bakery
$$
“Not really Scottish anymore, just a wonderful take-out eatery and bakery on State Road in Vineyard Haven. Not really walkable from the cottage (4 miles away), but is on the bus route. Gluten free and veggie options abound. Meals are made to order. Use the app on their website (scottishbakehousemv.com) to order ahead. They'll give you a pick-up time so you won't have to stand around and wait. They have picnic tables on the lawn if you only want to take out so far.”
