At the Sweet Life Cafe, we are focused on direct relationships with island farmers and fishermen. This allows us to showcase the very best the island has to offer and serve it to you in an enchanting atmosphere. 

Located at the end of Circuit Avenue in the heart of Oak Bluffs, we are an oasis of refined dining. Our restaurant has hosted presidents and beach bums with equal aplomb.  We strive to make every visit a truly exceptional dining experience. 

Our Story

What started as a summer romance between a chef and a waitress turned into marriage, parenthood and now business ownership for Erin and Hal Ryerson. After living in Nicaragua, New York City, Cambridge and Boston, Erin and Hal are happily back where it all began on Martha's Vineyard.  The Sweet Life has been a Martha's Vineyard dining institution since the late 1990's and the Ryersons are thrilled to be at the helm for it's next incarnation.
