45 Surfside Bakery and Café can be found on Surfside Road. It’s a great spot for people going to the beach, parents escorting their children to and from school, and anyone else looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Nantucket. The bike path right outside its door is an added bonus for easy access.
The way of Rebecca Moesinger
Since 2020, Rebecca has been the proud owner of a thriving 45 Surfside Bakery and Café.
Ever since she was young, Rebecca had a passion for cooking and eventually made it a reality. She started as the garden manager in the Park Plaza Hoteatin, Boston, before moving to The Ritz Carlton Hotel to become the assistant pastry chef.
In 1985, Rebecca finally opened her bakery in a cozy shop on the south shore. This was the beginning of a spectacular journey that has led her to the top of the culinary world. After ten years, the bakery grew in size and moved to Braintree, MA. Konditor Meister earned Rebecca fame for her custom and special occasion cakes.
Rebecca decided to take a leap of faith and purchased a property on Nantucket to start another bakery. She then went to work renovating the space, transforming it into the vibrant cafe it is today. In 2020, 45 Surfside Bakery and Cafe quickly became a popular destination for locals and tourists. Sadly, they no longer offer cakes of any kind!
Rebecca’s daughter Portia supported her in all the day-to-day operations of the café. Portia is responsible for managing their social media accounts, booking bridal appointments, and so much more.
What they offer
Rebecca’s ingredients are so exceptional that there isn’t a display case to be found. She can’t afford to waste the food, and her customers can’t afford to pay for it. Rebecca’s passion for selecting only the freshest ingredients is what drives her to invent new recipes every day. She even has her sharp-witted, honest daughter Portia will taste them!
This is more than a bakery; with offerings like pastries, breakfast, lunch, salads, pizza, smoothies, and even sodas and coffee, there’s something for everyone!
Rebecca’s 45 Surfside offers gourmet sandwiches for breakfast and lunch made with high-quality cheeses, freshly baked bread, and local fruits and vegetables. Signature dishes include prosciutto and ricotta topped with house-pickled cherry peppers and basil olive oil. And for something heartier, the fried egg sandwich features bacon, a fried egg, and American cheese on an English muffin, while the croissant sandwich features bacon, a scrambled egg, and American cheese.
The homemade ingredients Rebecca uses to give her creations an unforgettable taste. For example, Tom Brady’s sandwich includes roasted turkey and puts pickles in the herb aioli.
Coffee drinks are also served with homemade chocolate and caramel sauces; their tomato sauce and pizza dough are made fresh daily.
