For a Morning Coffee: Head to Rosewater
in Edgartown for coffee, homemade granola and a spot on the patio.

For Cocktails: The Port Hunter for live music in Edgartown and The Atlantic for a drink and dinner right on the harbor.

For Ice Cream: Mad Martha’s Ice Cream. Do not be fooled by any of the other ice cream shops.
This is the one. Favorite since we both were kids!

 

Three Restaurants You Love: The Red Cat
in Oak Bluffs for local, seasonal and delicious food. Alchemy in Edgartown is
one another one of our favorites, great bar and bistro. The Black Dog in
Vineyard Haven is an island institution– get the chowder!
