EAT & DRINK
For a Morning Coffee: Head to Rosewater in Edgartown for coffee, homemade granola and a spot on the patio.
For Ice Cream: Mad Martha’s Ice Cream. Do not be fooled by any of the other ice cream shops. This is the one. Favorite since we both were kids!
Three Restaurants You Love: The Red Cat in Oak Bluffs for local, seasonal and delicious food. Alchemy in Edgartown is one another one of our favorites, great bar and bistro. The Black Dog in Vineyard Haven is an island institution– get the chowder!
