The Getaway Breakfast

Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We love breakfast because it’s a great way to start the day off together with friends or family, planning and anticipating the day ahead. Our top pick for morning eats: Rocky Bay Cafe.

With a line out the door much of the year, this funky, family-friendly establishment is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Hearty portions, delicious coffee and speedy service with a smile are standard here. Plus, they have donuts which are made in-house daily! So if you’re not in the mood for a sit down breakfast, grab some donuts and coffee to go, head out to one of the many beaches around the island or simply grab a seat on a bench overlooking the harbor and enjoy a few minutes of bliss
