Water Street Bakery
*Located next to the Vineyard Haven Steamship Authority Ferry Terminal*
The Black Dog Tavern was serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, so the only time available to bake the Tavern’s breads and desserts was overnight. Every evening, after the kitchen closed for dinner, the baking crew arrived. The demand for The Black Dog’s baked goods would soon surpass this arrangement.
Opened in 1973, the Water Street Bakery building was once Vineyard Haven’s Firehouse. In addition to desserts, muffins and breads, The Black Dog Bakery was also where the first Black Dog tee shirts were sold.
Bakery demand eventually outgrew this space too, and all of our baking is now done at our Bakery Café on State Road. Not to worry though, freshly baked cookies, ginger snaps, pumpkin-cream cheese muffins, small cakes and scones are among the tantalizing array of fresh-baked goods still available at The Water Street Bakery Annex. An array of sandwiches and soups are also available, including The Black Dog's famous clam chowder and of course there is always hot coffee. Other items available at this location include the famous Breakfast Woofer Sandwich, freshly made sandwiches, coffee, pastries, donuts, granola and more. You will also find a retail store keeping alive the tradition of the Black Dog Classic T-Shirt.
Your last stop before the ferry, grab something to hold you over on the boat ride.
