There is no question that Downyflake is one of my favorite breakfast places anywhere. While the menu is pretty basic and straightforward, the blueberry pancakes are not to be missed. Make sure you have cash since credit cards are not accepted.

Great donuts here - not a huge selection but you don;t really need it with their offerings. We loved the chocolate, sugar and coconut.

If you don't want a precious, pricey breakfast, Downyflake is your best bet. Good food and best donuts in America!

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.
