This is the place to make you feel like a local. Everyone from construction workers, fisherman and tourists are here. Fantastic fresh donuts! Always great scrambles.

Fresh made old style donuts. Plain, Sugar, Chocolate, Coconut, Cinnamon. Half dozen is perfect for 2 people for a simple breakfast to go. Also one can sit down for a more traditional breakfast. But the doughnuts are just fine to get a sugar and coffee...More

Worth the drive for homemade delicious donuts. Super coffee and great egg dishes! Many choices of homemade breads! Locals know where to go. Absolutely loved it! Now we know where to go also!

I always head to Downyflake for breakfast when I visit Nantucket. Food is always good. The donuts are made fresh every day. Delicious.

Their donuts are tasty but the food is average. Not as flavorful as I had expected. Buy the donuts skip breakfast. Good service. Glad they have re-opened - but just for the donuts.

Been going to Downyflake for 40 yrs +. A Nantucket tradition. Arrive early - before 8:00 a.m. in summer and your ok - later be ready to wait Chocolate, sugar, and plain doughnuts.
