The For Now Guide to Nantucket

To celebrate being back on ACK for another summer, we created an Official* Guide to Nantucket!

We made this guide so that when you're done discovering the emerging brands at For Now, you can discover all of our favorite spots on this magical island. Special thanks to Eliza Ferrel, Founder of Joy Street Kids, who designed this guide for us. It's filled with our go-to's for everything from coffee and açaí bowls to ACK-tivities and accommodations. 

So here's to another great summer, filled with beach days, date nights, and LOTS of shopping.

*not in any way official. 

Food and drinks: In-Town

Our hunger/thirst circuit tends to orbit around these cobblestone streets.

  • But first, coffee. The Handlebar iced coffee is truly unparalleled - contrary to popular belief, iced coffee is easy to mess up.  
  • The Counter on Main Street for an Acai bowl with HEAPS of peanut butter. Our favorite on the island.
  • Something Natural for 1/2 a tuna sandwich on rye. Pro tip: ½ is more than plenty for one person. And if you don’t order a chocolate chip cookie, you are definitely missing out. 
  • Ventuno has our whole heart - we could live off this burrata. And table bread. 
  • Born and Bread makes an unforgettable cornmeal cookie. Highly recommended grabbing if you need to bring a sweet treat to a friend’s for dessert! 
  • The Green Market is truly a one-stop-shop with everything from organic groceries & meals to clean beauty essentials. It’s like if Cardullo’s and Follain had a baby (IYKYK).
  • The “bbc” from Sandbar is a drinkable dessert: banana rum, coconut rum, and irish cream. Start with tacos and fries if you’re planning to have more than one ; ) 
  • Epernay for wine / wine delivery. Fun fact: our first apartment on Nantucket was a stone's throw from Epernay and we definitely took advantage of the proximity.
  • Sayle’s Seafood for shrimp cocktail (great addition to a sunset beach picnic), or if you’re itching for a clambake, you can get one to-go! 
  • All the meals at Sister Ship are top notch, but what keeps us coming back is the Mermaid Marg w/ jalapeño infused agave. Pick your potion of tequila or mezcal.
  • Nautilus: order the blue crab fried rice and most unbelievable cocktails shaken and stirred by Clinton. Pro tip: make your res waaaaay in advance. 

Food and drinks: Out-of-Town

10/10 would recommend bringing or renting a bike if you’re headed to Nantucket! If that’s not your speed and you’re willing to spend a little more, rent a moped or Jeep.

  • Pi Pizza: a slice of Italian heaven on the island. We love their Neapolitan style pie...and don't miss the antipasti!
  • Life is good with  a post-Cisco Beach Grey Lady at Cisco Brewery with a side of fresh tuna from 167 Raw… they serve it with guac and seaweed salad. 
  • A trip to Millie’s is non negotiable. Their tacos (our fav is the Smith Point Shrimp Tacos) + margaritas really can’t be beat! Try to plan your dinner to catch sunset! 
  • Island Kitchen: the panko crusted eggs benny is reason enough to visit ACK. Try it for yourself and report back.


Not everything is about eating and drinking (or is it?) 

  • Looking for personalized vacation plans? Mary of Nantucket Magic is your girl for curated recommendations and insider tips to make your time on Nantucket the most magical one yet!
  • Find your zen with 1111 Nantucket at their studio and at Cisco Brewery on the weekends. BIG fan of those!
  • We’ve experienced some magical moments aboard Endeavor Sailing. Check out the morning and/or sunset sails.
  • Steps Beach is not only convenient from town but great for swimming / wading. The sandbar at low tide is fun for all ages. If you didn’t grab sandwiches from Something Natural on your way (or even if you did), make sure to hit up Sandbar for sips, snacks, and unparalleled beachside seating.
  • Make friends with someone who has a beach sticker and get yourself out to Eel Point for a beach day. Looking for the best sunset? Head to Madaket for arguably the best one on the island.
  • Self-care? Lavender Farm Wellness has one of the best massages we’ve ever had. 


We obviously recommend shopping exclusively at For Now, but you may augment with trips to Dawn (literally the best jean selection), Faherty, Grace Geier, and The Vault. The Hospital Thrift Shop is home to some of our favorite finds on island (flamingo toothbrush holder anyone?) and it's a Nantucket institution, open for business for 93 years and counting!


You’re already here, so you *hopefully* have a place to stay, but next time check out Life House or Faraway. Both are renovated, new boutique inns/hotels in town where every detail has been thought of. The Nantucket - a historic but newly restored hotel - also holds a special place in our hearts.


We hope to see you around town. And if we do, just say the secret word flamingo with a strong head nod and we’ll be forever connected. (It’s like the Jeep wave but more exclusive).

- Kaity, Katharine and team For Now
