Ambrosia Store in Nantucket
Courtesy of Ambrosia

Tucked into the Meeting House building on Centre Street, Ambrosia sells handmade chocolate, tea varieties, spices and herbs (some straight from island farms). The shop is fashioned as a charming apothecary with floor-to-ceiling wood built-ins and a large glass cabinet that doubles as the shop's counter.

Ambrosia reflects a more subtle side of Nantucket, where delicacies are savored for their richness rather than their ritziness. In the summer months, co-owner Claudia Butler handpicks handpicking rosa rugosa petals across the island for their best-selling Wild Rose Sea Salt. Pick up a jar of salt and one of their monkey bars—milk chocolate with dried bananas and yellow curry—for an eclectic taste of an island with global roots.
