While we can’t go out to eat at Nantucket restaurants right now, it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the island's delicious cuisine from the comfort of your rental home. Many restaurants on Nantucket are offering take out and delivery services, so you can still support local businesses. With so many Nantucket take out options to choose from, we thought it'd be helpful to compile a list of a few of our favorites.
Must-Try Nantucket Take Out
At Bartlett's Farm, you can order your fresh produce, groceries, and delicious prepared foods online and pick them up with curbside service. Bartlett's is Nantucket's oldest and largest family-owned farm offering some of the best produce and fresh food that you can find on the island. You can even order bakery cakes and catering. Check the Bartlett's Farm website for more information about their curbside pickup options.
45 Surfside Bakery and Cafe
Tired of having a bowl of cereal for breakfast? Order an egg sandwich, breakfast burrito, or fruit smoothie from 45 Surfside Bakery and Cafe. This Nantucket cafe offers a selection of lunch items as well, including sandwiches and salad options, and plenty of sweet treats to appease all dessert lovers.

The Bean offers more than just coffee. With delicious salads, sandwiches, and flatbreads, The Bean is a perfect lunch option.

Cisco Brewers Nantucket is open for curbside pickup so you can enjoy local, handcrafted beer and more. Bring the fun of the brewery to your house by picking up some bottled beer, wine, and spirits. While it may not be quite the same as a drink with friends at the brewery, having that same cocktail or beer at home is the second-best thing.
Pick up some donuts for a treat for the whole family from Downyflake. This quintessential, family-owned diner has been a staple on the island for more than 80 years offering housemade donuts and breakfast. Located mid-island, Downyflake is offering curbside takeout daily or delivery through ACKeats. Their entire breakfast and lunch menu is available to go.

Nothing beats pizza on a chilly spring night, especially from Pi Pizzeria! While we miss their cozy dining room, we are thrilled to be able to enjoy their pizza and other delicious meals at home.
