Nantucket Grill & Bar


Allow one of Nantucket Grill's amazing pastry chefs to create your next dessert! We make our specialty cakes available to order in quarter, half, and whole sizes. Most are available with a 24 hour notice. We make all of our special order cakes half the height and twice the width as we serve in store (3 layers of cake with 2 layers of filling). This makes them easier to transport and to serve. We also offer customized sheet cakes.

Dreaming of a flavor you don't see in the store? Just ask. We can make many more flavors upon special request. Gluten free, vegan, and sugar free options are also available.
