GOURMET FUN

At Beetlebung we believe food should be healthy, exceedingly delicious, and fun. Farm to table? Absolutely. We start with fresh ingredients from Martha's Vineyard farms and waters. We combine these with culinary traditions and flavors from around the world so that you can pick and choose, combine, and share (if you like) fun foods, from the solidly familiar to the deliciously exotic. From Cheese Burger Sliders to Curry Lobster Sliders with Truffle Fries. Morning Glory Farm Salads with local Beach Plum vinaigrette. Moroccan Swordfish Tajine. Local Black Sea Bass Tacos. And Wok'd Drunken Noodles with farm-fresh Thai basil.

We're farm to bar, too. We craft sensational cocktails from garden fresh herbs and over a dozen fruits from raspberries to watermelon. Our hammered zinc bar with its plush bar stools is one of the longest on the Island.  Our bar offers the leading call brands, as well as Organic, gluten free, and local craft spirits and beers, and a thoughtful selection of wines we love.

As the Island's leading espresso alchemist for a decade, we must warn you: our Cafe Latte is ruthlessly addictive. Beetlebung Baristas pull creamy caramel-colored shots on classic espresso machines from Florence, Italy, using freshly roasted beans from Barrington Coffee in Berkshire County. Then they steam the milk - not too hot, not too cool - smooth as velvet. It's a good thing we offer a Frequent Drinkers card.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Morning, noon, and night. Come join us for gourmet fun! We're open every day, 7am to very late.

RESTAURANT

Martha's Vineyard is home to 40 farms and Island fishermen haul in fresh fish and shellfish daily. In the kitchen, these are our raw materials - fresh, local, and unadulterated. 

We combine a range of cooking traditions - North African, Asian, and European - with great local ingredients to create gourmet fun food. Our Drunken Noodles taste straight out of Asia, yet with the extra freshness of just-picked Thai basil, and if you like, a side of lightly wok-fried local Asian greens.  We pair local lobster with Chinese classic scallion pancakes. And our burgers are served slider-style topped with Italian truffle cheese and Morning Glory Farm greens.

We use local, Organic, and non-GMO ingredients whenever possible. Our

Open daily in season. Lunch 11:30am - 3pm. Dinner 6pm - 11pm. Walk-ins are welcome. Dinner reservations recommended.

COCKTAIL BAR

We take the farm to the bar. The mint in our Fresh Raspberry Mojito is just picked. The limes for The Trade Secret - our signature margarita with its proprietary lime foam - are freshly squeezed. And the watermelon in our Tito's vodka Phuket Punch is freshly muddled to order.

We serve the wines and beers we love: select yet affordable wines by the glass and bottle - and local, imported and, yes, even Organic draft and bottled beers.

Then there is our long curvacious zinc bar, magical Turkish lamps, eclectic music, sumptuous bar and lounge seating... well, let's just say you should plan to stay awhile.

Open daily in season, 11:30am - midnight.

ESPRESSO BAR

Our espresso is simply world-class and the Island's best. We start with the finest, freshest beans from small, elite roaster Barrington Coffee in Berkshire County. Next, our Baristas work their magic, freshly grinding the beans per order. The result - a velvety espresso with intense coffee flavor free of bitterness. Unforgettable and addictive. 

In the morning stop by for an Organic Eggwich, wild sockeye salmon and cream cheese bagel sandwich, or a fresh baked croissant. On a hot summer day, chill with a Bungaccino (our popular espresso shake), fruit and yogurt smoothie, fresh squeezed lemonade slushy, or Organic iced tea. And in the evening unwind with a mini vanilla cheesecake and a Cappuccino. Our Baristas are standing by.

Open daily in season, 7am - 10pm. Breakfast sandwiches made to order 7am - 10:30am.

Started ten years ago, Beetlebung Coffee House is located in Menemsha, a tiny fishing village near the up-Island town of Chilmark. This rural area is rugged and beautiful. The ocean is ever present. Ancient farmer's walls criss-cross fields cleared hundreds of year ago for grazing sheep.

It is from where we take our name, Beetlebung. Islanders fabricated wooden beetles (mallets) and bungs (stoppers) from Island Beetlebung trees to seal casks of whale oil. "Beetlebung Corner" is the quiet intersection at Chilmark center.

Beetlebung Baristas handcraft a range of hot and iced espresso drinks, Organic teas, and frosty thirst quenchers, from fresh squeezed lemonade slushies, to all natural fruit and yogurt smoothies.

For breakfast, we serve our signature Organic Eggwich; bagel sandwiches with cream cheese and smoked local bluefish or wild Sockeye salmon; and fresh baked croissants and scones. For Lunch, we offer our signature Curry Lobster Sliders and made-to-order Panini (grilled sandwiches) and Wraps from outstanding all-natural and local ingredients.

The Coffee House is a fun and social destination far away from the populated centers down-Island. By car, bike, and bus, guests from all over the country and the world venture up-Island to check out this most beautiful territory of Martha's Vineyard.

Open daily in season, 7:30am - 7pm.

CLOTHING, GIFTS

MUGS & beach towels

Those of us who live on the Island often say you have to have three jobs to get by - our third one is our Beetlebung Corner Stores. Throughout the winter months when Martha's Vineyard is buried in snow, we design clothing for all ages, beach towels, cups and mugs, and oddities like recycled bike chain refrigerator magnets.

VINEYARD designS

BY LOCAL ARTISTS

Most of our winter creations feature Island-inspired graphic designs by local artists. Louisa Gould ("Manta Ray"), Eric Hawkes ("Sheep at Keith Farm"), John Holladay ("Quitsa Strider II"), and Daniel Waters ("Mermaid"). It's art you can wear, pack into your beach bag, enjoy with a cup of coffee. It is practical and beautiful. Art for every day life, Vineyard style.
