Martha's Vineyard Restaurants: Beetlebung Restaurant Oak Bluffs Features Brunch Every Day

Every day at 10 a.m., brunch begins at Beetlebung. I chose Tuesday morning to venture for my first time. The place was hopping. Chill music playing, people happy to sit have a morning cocktail, and settle in for brunch. It was a scene, even Island icon Skip Finely was there!

Located on Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs, and celebrating its third summer, Beetlebung has grown in popularity. The coffee is good (thank goodness because Mocha Motts is still under construction) and Chef Daniel Finger has a way of making the ordinary, extraordinary. The menu features classics with some great modern and local twists.

How about a Monte Cristo for brunch? At Beetlebung, you can get the croissant Monte Cristo, which features Black Forest ham, organic eggs, fontina cheese, tomato and french toast dipped croissant. WOW! Maybe an eggs benny is more your style. The one here features slow roasted pulled pork, spinach and then the usual fixings.

Grey Barn Omelet At Beetlebung Brunch Martha's Vineyard Breakfast

For me, I was committed as soon as I saw the Grey Barn Omelet. Three organic eggs, folded around house-made pork sausage and melted Grey Barn Eidolon cheese. Local cheese, fresh sausage. A winner. When I chatted with Danny in the kitchen about it — he was all smiles. He is thrilled with how the menu is being received this year!

It was really good and really different because of the sausage and cheese. Eidolon is bright and rich, and loved having it in an omelet, especially since I consider it a treat. There were a number of items on the menu that I want to try. Guess I will need to go back again….soon.

Creative Cocktails (Geared For Brunch)

With brunch, one may consider having a cocktail. A mimosa or Bloody Mary is always nice, but there are some other creative cocktails that might catch your eye. Coffee is always nice before noon, so I decided to try the Beetlebung Brunch Coffee. Made with Borghetti Espresso liquor, Whisper Peak Cream, Jameson, Beetlebung iced coffee, and a little chocolate mole (a little spicy chocolate concoction).

Clay, the charming bartender, whipped up my coffee drink with expertise. It was an eye-opening choice. A little more potent than I am used to at such an early hour. A sipping drink, it was nice to relax and take my time with it and my omelet.

I think next time, I might try the A & P Bellini (Beetlebung is located in the space of the old A & P grocery store). Mionetto and a house-made apricot-peach syrup. Looked so good!
