Best breakfast in Bath ME

We had several breakfasts here, the food was wonderful and the service even better. Having served in the US Navy's, I found this restaurant especially interesting. Who knew what they make just across the street?

This is a simple restaurant/cafe with consistently good breakfast and good service. I eat here everytime I visit Bath. Their portions are also quite large. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a good breakfast in Bath for a reasonable price.

We love breakfast here!! Everything is great, the service, the food, the coffee. It's the cleanest restaurant I've ever been to. Don't miss a chance to visit this excellent gem on the MidCoast!!

We've been popping in here for breakfast or lunch for quite a few years. We've always been warmly greeted by the servers who don't make you feel any different from the locals. I suddenly realized that after all these years, I've never written a review for the Southgate. The breakfasts are good and straightforward. They also offer specials. We have... More

Went for breakfast when in Bath a couple of weeks ago. Service was fast! Breakfast choices excellent! Coffee hot and filled without requesting. Wait staff could not have been more accommodating! All in all a very nice experience. Good food! Reasonably priced! I'd definitely go back again!

Not often do you have the opportunity to eat so locally! The building use to be a house. It sits across from Bath Iron Works. They serve 2 breakfasts and 2 lunch. Walkins can come anytime. I had the Veggie Melt and Clam Chowder. The Sandwich was delicious and the chowder had lots of chopped clams. My husband enjoyed his... More

To be honest its just ok food. Nothing to complain about, and the prices are right. What makes this place special is the local color: the proximity to a place that actually makes something in America (the shipyard), the retirees that used to make the ships (presumably since most of them have bullet proof ball caps), and the waitresses.

This is a good place to start your day. The food is good and reasonably priced. It's also kid friendly with baskets of toys to keep them entertained while you wait. On occasion be prepared to wait as the place fills up fast. The place has tables that can be put together for groups up to 8.
