Martha’s Vineyard has so many great restaurants its hard to choose where to go next! This summer, we’ve been seeing some seriously tasty new additions popping up across the Island, and these five unique eats are worth making the trip.
S & S Kitchenette. New to Vineyard Haven, S & S Kitchenette is a provisions, retail, and event space now open at 48 Main Street. Created by local chef Spring Sheldon, this adorable space creates a sense of community with its large family-style table, karaoke nights, and motherhood circle discussions. You can also find Island made preserved products, locally-crafted ceramics and kitchen ware and even fresh produce and flowers from Land Ho! Farm.
By day, find prepared grab-and-go meal kits; such as fresh flower pastas, salads, and enchiladas. By night, the Kitchenette transforms into a shared space, where chefs from around the Island and beyond host pop-up dinners. A few notable pop-ups so far have been with Stoney Hill Pizza, Epicure, and Little Trúc of Easthampton, Massachusetts. The space is also available for chef tastings, private events, cooking classes, and has oh, so much potential! Though small, this new space has a lot of personality that promises a lot of great things to come!
Aalia’s Coffee. Since opening in mid-May of this year, Aalia’s Coffee has seemingly become a new favorite spot for many Islanders and visitors in Oak Bluffs. Located at 16 Kennebec Ave, the inviting bright and sunny space is hard to miss. The coffee shop serves unique lattes, such as its Purple Sweet Potato Latte and Iced Raspberry Matcha Latte - both of which have been huge hits!
If you’re not an early-bird type, this spot is definitely for you. On top of keeping you caffeinated, it is also are one of the few restaurants on Martha’s Vineyard that serve breakfast all day. Even if you sleep in, you can enjoy breakfast sandwiches, acai bowls, large Lebanese breakfasts, and more anytime between 7am - 6pm (or until 4pm on Mondays).
,Morning Glory Food Wagon. If you do happen to be an early bird, the food wagon at Morning Glory Farm should be on the top of your bucket list! This stationary food truck starts serving breakfast bright and early at 6am, and wraps up the day by 11am.
The menu currently consists of breakfast sandwiches, toasts, shrimp & grits, biscuits & gravy, and baked goods, such as scones, fried bread pudding, and, fan-favorite, fresh donuts. Every other Sunday, Chef Doug hosts themed pop-up dinners from 4:30pm - 7pm; Tandoor Night and Egg Roll Madness being two recent examples of the innovative offerings!
Mo’s Lunch. If you haven’t checked out Mo’s Lunch yet, you’re missing out! Not only do they serve a variety of delicious sandwiches at an affordable price, they also have lots of tasty baked goods.
During the week, you can often find colossal cookies on the menu, such as the Big Chocolate Chip Cookie, the Big Lemon Sugar Cookie, and the Big Vegan Fudge Cookie. Also offered are cake and pie slices that often rotate throughout the week. On Saturday mornings, come in for a taste of the homemade donuts! But make sure to come early - these donuts sell out fast!
Copper Anchor. Enjoy seafood, sushi, and Pan Asian cuisine at Copper Anchor in Vineyard Haven. Once known as Copper Wok, the newly conceived Copper Anchor has been inspired by its sister location in Oak Bluffs, the MV Chowder Company, to expand its original menu to incorporate more fresh seafood. The new menu at Copper Anchor offers something for everyone, including award-winning chowder and lobster rolls, egg rolls, sushi, noodle dishes, and so much more!
