Best breakfast and staff

I've lived all over the U.S.A. from N.Y. to Alaska for the last 40 years and I would rate breakfast and staff here a 10.I try to have breakfast here 3 or 4 times a week while in Boothbay over the summer. If you like B. L. T. 's you will love the Center Cafe in Boothbay.

The place is not fancy and the menu is not overly extensive but they just sort of do everything right. You can tell that they enjoy working there. I think that everything is baked fresh every day and it is all done with care and attention to detail. They are warm and fun to everyone and are very good at... More

We were staying in Boothbay Harbor and wondered where we'd eat breakfast. We happened to see the sign which wasn't that noticeable and I think people may get confused because you have to drive by the exit and around a small corner to get to the entrance. The open flag is at the exit and we saw people pull in... More

Amazing New England porch to eat outside in good weather. Away from the busy Harbor town, yet just minutes away. Fantastic coffee, breakfast choices and service. Weekend special of Eggs Benedict were very good, and home fries were nicely done. Ability to savor the gentle breeze and calming views of Boothbay Common (when there are no events). And the choice...

Had breakfast here yesterday. Both indoor & outdoor seating with a nice porch overlooking the Gazebo on the Town Green provides a quiet tranquil setting away from the hustle & bustle of the downtown harbor for a wonderful homemade breakfast & great coffee. The menu for lunch has a wonderful selection of soups, salads & sandwiches. I will definitely be... More

Have only eaten breakfast here, and did so again today. We've done breakfast at various places throughout the Boothbay area, and this is the best. Enjoy the outdoor porch, great pancakes or omelets or the special quiches, attentive service, endless coffee, and reasonable prices. And on Sundays they serve b'fast all day. Can't go wrong here.

The food is good. The service is friendly and the food comes out in a timely manner. The atmosphere is casual and very local.

This is a great breakfast place - rural Maine at its' best. Their crabmeat breakfast is wonderful, corned beef hash locally made, and muffins superb. Frequented by locals - I had a great time eavesdropping on local talk and happenings. Highly recommended for a mellow great breakfast.

We visited here two mornings in a row and were pleased to see that it seems to be a place where the locals go to eat. The owner of the cafe knew everyone's name and took an interest in us tourists as well. The food was cooked to order and served with a smile. The coffee was a little stronger... More
