11 Water Street
A fresh stop for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack while on the go.
A delicious first or last stop by the ferry!
Opened in 1973, the Water Street bakery took up residence in the former Vineyard Haven Firehouse as a solution to the Tavern’s dessert needs. The Bakery was also where the first Black Dog t-shirts were sold.
The Tavern’s dessert demands quickly outgrew the small Bakery and soon production was moved to the Bakery Café on State Road. Not to worry: our freshly baked cookies, ginger snaps, pumpkin-cream cheese muffins, decadent desserts, and scones are just a few of the many sweet treats still available at the Bakery. On-the-go meal options include freshly made sandwiches like the “Chappy”, savory soups, clam chowder, and our famous Breakfast Woofer Sandwich. In keeping with tradition, our iconic t-shirts, along with a wide selection of Black Dog classics, are also available for purchase.
