Behind the Bookstore is a 75-seat seasonal cafe and restaurant located on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard. Right off of Main Street, the open-air dining room is a community meeting place and hub of activity. What began as a small coffeeshop, has grown into a dining destination, serving specialty coffee, breakfast, lunch & dinner everyday. The kitchen, led by Chef Molly Levine, previously of Chez Panisse, sources locally whenever possible, cultivating strong relationships with neighboring farms and fishermen.

It is our mission to support a creative and collaborative environment. Operating with limited space, teamwork is at the center of our success in fostering sustainable practices, maintaining high quality, and nurturing professional and real human relationships. 

We are currently still hiring kitchen staff for the 2017 season! 

Current Available positions include:

  • Line cooks  (lunch, dinner)
  • Pastry assistant
  • Dishwashers
