Nantucket Friday Favorite Finds III

It’s been busy on island and I’m a tad late with this week’s Nantucket Friday Favorite Finds but wanted to give you a peek before week’s end. While many visitors explore the main cobblestone streets in town, there are many places to see tucked away on side streets. In fact, a group of these shops got together to form a shopper’s guide to Nantucket’s hidden gems with a map and Instagram feed @offthebeatenpath that happens to include this week’s finds.

Nantucket Friday Favorite Handlebar cafe-1

My favorite coffee spot on island is the friendly and delicious Handlebar Café. Conveniently located at 15 Washington Street, owners Courtney and Jason Bridges have created a space where you can not only get a great coffee (or latte, cappuccino etc) but sit and meet friends or catch up on emails – there’s great wifi. Whether inside or out back on their secret patio

Next door, in between Handlebar and favorite stationery shop, Parchment, is the lovely.
