First Review by SqueakRedhorn

I didn't actually order anything - Edit

I read previous reviews, and stopped in anyway looking for takeaway and baked goods. There was a long line, and as I looked at the vegan options while waiting, everything was so pricey that I couldn't justify ordering anything, even baked goods for a snack. I live on the island, and the prices were even too high for me to justify buying a special little vegan treat for the road. In addition to lunch, I needed granola for breakfasts at home, and though I loved the look of the bagged granola at the Bakehouse, it was so expensive that I took the time on a hungry stomach to buy oats and nuts down the road to prepare for the hour at home to make granola rather than spending $16 for 12 ounces at the Bakehouse. I arrived hungry and needing snacks, meals, and takeaway, and could not justify any of it.

Pros: Vegan options labeled and look good

Cons: So expensive, Long wait, even if just for bakery takeaway

Decent food,too slow - Edit

Stopped in a couple of times recently now that the summer crowds have dissipated. The food is good but the wait time is too long. Don't be in a hurry. Good coffee and baked goods.

Just ok - Edit

With not many options on the island, Scottish Bakehouse seems to be a great addition. There's a large extent of vegan baked goods that are clearly marked. However, the past few times i've been, its been pretty disappointing. I ordered the tofu and it took an hour to make and ended up just ok; then another time i ordered the vegan blt and asked to make it vegan and after waiting i was given the regular. It is a good place to get small baked goods and bread but not for a meal or food.

Not bad but disappointing - Edit

Maybe we should have paid attention to their website or these reviews... So many folks recommended this place while we were cycling as THE place if you're vegan that we went without doing any homework. Our expectations were very high and therefore it was disappointing.

First of all we didn't realize it wasn't a sit-down restaurant. I'd describe it as a bakery with take out food. There's a skinny counter inside to sit at and picnic tables outside. Depending on time of day could be buggy. It was for us around 5:30. OH...and they close at 6:30. As with anything else in a tourist area it was expensive and there were long waits since they do make everything from scratch. I think vegetarians will do better.

My husband wanted a burger. The only one that came close to vegan was the Quinoa one which we thought would be vegan but had egg in it. We're not always super strict so he had that. They failed to adhere to his request to leave off the mayo. I ordered 2 sides with a protein. I got Brussels sprouts, sweet potato wedges and coconut tofu. Both veggies were under cooked and disappointing. The serving sizes were huge and since we're bike touring we had no use for leftovers. So wasted food.

As someone else said, any (or most) baked goods that were vegan were ALSO GF. Why do folks do that? GF folks don't like being forced to be vegan any more than we like their grainy substitutions! We "cheated" and had a non-vegan chocolate chip cookie that was excellent.

As my title says, it's not bad. So if you in with more accurate expectations I think you'll like it. Allow plenty of time. In fact, call ahead and you'll be better off.

Pros: easy to find, look for Scottish flag, excellent baked goods including vegan and GF, lots of vegetarian options

Cons: Not so many vegan options, vegan baked goods were also GF, not a many vegan options as I'd have liked

Long wait but OK food - Edit

We waited about 45 minutes to get our food, unfortunately. I'm not sure if that's typical but it seems like they had a busy take out business and our order was like 15 in line even though we were one of the few people eating there.

Bakery items weren't great, to be honest. The vegan items were also mostly gluten free, and not so sweet. Cookies should be decadent in my opinion.

I got the coconut tofu - be sure to ask for it vegan - which was pretty good. The rice was cold, I'm not sure if that was intended..

Very good vegan food - Edit

The food here was very good and we felt lucky to find it via Happy Cow. If I lived on the Vineyard, I would eat here constantly.

Despite what another reviewer wrote, we found picnic tables out back that were near trees and a garden and had a pleasant outdoor meal without highway noise.

Pros: Delicious food, Helpful staff

Cons: A bit slow (but our day was crowded)

Not my Favorite - Edit

Yes this place did offer some vegan baked goods, and typically I love almost all vegan desserts I eat, but I couldn't even finish some of their Bakery items. They had about 5 different vegan desserts (all of which were cookies and bars). All the cookies were way to powdery, I felt like I was going to choke. However, I did not try any of their meals but I would stay away from the baked goods. To me it wasn't worth the 20 minute car ride. I recommend going into Edgartown and asking the chef to accommodate you at any restaurant.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: Bakery items

Best bet in area - Edit

Good variety - plenty of things to try. I live far away and only visited once - but it is the kind of place I would frequent if nearer to me. Basically take-out with reasonable waiting time for preparation. Servers are knowlegeable and friendly. Portions were ample.

Pros: Interesting variety, friendly staff, Generoius servings, Good value

Cons: Outside tables are by highway, No pleasant place to eat there
