About

Our Fog Island Cafe

Fog Island Cafe owners Mark and Anne Dawson met at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). After graduation, Anne moved to Nantucket, Massachusetts, and within a short time Mark followed her to the quaint island. Here Mark and Anne married in 1987, and made Nantucket their year-round home. A few years later, the Dawsons realized their dream of running their own establishment when a building vacancy occurred in an ideal spot in town. In 2011 they acquired a building in Mid island. Today Fog Island is located at 5 Amelia Drive where they also own & operate Keepers Restaurant!

Our Vision

Keeping the particular beauty of Nantucket in mind, Mark and Anne thought of the fog that so frequently lays itself down on the island like a warm blanket. From this inspiration, the Dawson’s named their new venture the Fog Island Cafe. The cafe opened in 1993.  At first, the cafe was a small bistro-style place serving American regional cuisines. Now that the move to mid island is complete, Healthy alternatives, Community contribution, and the sharing of our nutritious and delicious foods is our vision and mission!

Chef/Owners Mark and Anne Dawson and their family have been serving Nantucket Visitors and Locals at the Fog Island Cafe  since 1993.
