Downyflake donuts are the best! Especially the chocolate covered ones. Something about the batter is really terrific. The regular breakfast they serve is also very good. A must visit while on Nantucket.

Downyflake was our first return to Nantucket food. Their donuts are unlike anyone's. Best ever!!! We were surprised that they weren't served warm and fresh as they used to be!! Bring that back! There's not a bad choice here for a wonderful breakfast!
