Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner in-season on the Gay Head Cliffs at the Aquinnah Shop Restaurant. The restaurant’s claim to fame is the terrific views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Elizabeth Islands, seen from both inside and outside seating.
Jacob Vanderhoop has been cooking at his family’s restaurant since he was 12 and in 2012 he took over as head chef. Trained at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Cambridge, his menu boasts plenty of seafood even for breakfast, such as Fishcakes & Eggs; and the Tomahawk Special: 2 homemade codfish cakes with salsa, served with eggs and cheese.
The restaurant serves beer and wine.
We like: Blue Corn Pancakes enjoyed outside on a warm summer morning.
