Slice of Life, Oak Bluffs

50 Circuit Avenue
Oak Bluffs , Massachusetts
Tel: 508 693 3838's insider take:

Chockablock with touristy fried-food joints and a few upscale dinner restaurants, Oak Bluffs' main drag has precious few choices in between. But this small, laid-back café, where artsy black-and-white photos hang above simple wood tables and folding chairs (the best on a small, closed-in porch), serves sophisticated comfort food that hits the sweet spot. The on-site bakery turns out terrific breads and while you can buy loaves to go, the best way to enjoy them is as bookends to one of the café's signature sandwiches. The Tivoli, served at breakfast, pairs fried egg with ripe tomato, arugula, and white cheddar on a hot buttermilk biscuit. For lunch, go for the fried-green-tomato BLT, served on rosemary bread with a smear of tangy basil mayo.
