Broad Street, located just steps from Steamboat Wharf, is the place to go for cheap takeout eats any time. Good choices are Island Coffee, 4 Broad St. (tel. 508/228-2224), where you can treat yourself to rich coffee and chocolate croissants with Nutella; Walter's Deli, 10 Broad St. (tel. 508/228-0010), for sandwiches; and Stubby's, 8 Broad St. (tel. 508/228-0028), for burgers. Walter's and Stubby's are open until 2am.
Money-saving tip: Nantucket has so many excellent and expensive fine-dining restaurants, it can be hard to make decisions while keeping the bank account under control. Foodies may want to consider scheduling their visit during one of their two Nantucket Restaurant Weeks (early June and late Sept), when you can get three-course menus for the same price as an entree costs on a typical night. Think of it as two or three meals for the price of one.
