Fabulous Food with a Side of Harbor Views

Sitting by the beach on a hot summer’s day, enjoying fresh ocean breezes and beautiful views is one perfect way to savor Nantucket. And a short stroll from the heart of downtown you’ll find the seaside café where you can enjoy this quintessential island experience.
Gyp~Sea Café at Children’s Beach is operated by Abby Shaw and Stacey McEachern, the same successful duo who brought The Surf to Surfside Beach. New this season is covered seating on a beautiful garden patio surrounded by plantings and flowers. Now guests can be seated for breakfast or lunch at a table with harbor views just steps from the sand and be sheltered from the heat.

You’re Sure to Come Back for More!

As far back as we can remember (and Yesterday’s Island goes back more than half a century), The Brotherhood of Thieves has been a local favorite. It first opened as a pub in 1972. Island residents and visitors have dined on burgers, fresh fish, curly fries, cheese plates, and beer in The Brotherhood spring, summer, and fall ever since, except for a pause during 2021, when we all feared this island landmark had closed for good.

Something for Everyone on Easy Street

Perfect Pairings & Plentiful Plates

Though we’ve been out to sea for years and years, it seems there is always something new to lay our eyes on. A new place to spot the sunset or a new beach to dip our toes into. Or, better yet, a restaurant new to us (but not new) where we can enjoy some fantastic culinary creations and libations.

Inventive, Inspired, and Seriously Good

The old adage suggests
saving the best for last, and
there’s certainly wisdom in
that. The best should be studied
and savored. The best
takes time to truly understand
and appreciate. But time is
fleeting, which is why we enjoyed
