Enjoyed the delicious flavors of this authentic breakfast joint. I don't like that they charged extra for maple syrup, but considering that everything on Nantucket is expensive, it was a pretty good deal. Very fine doughnuts. Overall positive experience.

First of all, everyone calls it The 'Flake. I do take-out more often than not and I always eat a donut or two while walking out the door. Nothing like a warm donut- plain, sugar, coconut or chocolate. They serve breakfast and lunch only. I love that it's not fancy and it's spotless. They've had the same staff for years and the counter gals are so friendly and efficient. Parking is tough so just park across the street at Stop & Shop and walk the 1 minute to the restaurant. That way you can justify eating another donut.

They made sugar donuts and chocolate glaze and both are incredible. You can stay for breakfast or just get a dozen donuts to go, which is what my family does very often. You will not find donuts like this anywhere else and they only have three choices!

I think we were the only tourists in this place on a Sunday morning. It is small but the food is good and the tables turn over quickly. We got a very good breakfast very quickly and at a reasonable price. Will be back!
