We just stopped in for pie and coffee, the blueberry pie was delicious. Wish we had had time to return to sample others, the coffee cream looked amazing, and the ladies at Capers told us the peach shortcake is legendary! Excellent stop, old wooden booths looking out over the street, lots of fun, and good service!

Standard diner restaurant type fair. We had 1 meal here during our week stay in Boothbay. Wife had a breakfast and I did a lunch. Pancakes wife had were good, but the hamburger I had was a greasy and most likely came from the freezer. The place just seems a little lackluster

Ebb tide hasn't changed in 35 years, still puts out very good food, small but very big in personality, same wait staff as 30 + years ago

We went to Ebb Tide for the desserts and were pleased with the bread pudding, peach dessert and chocolate dessert. Fun talking with the waitress who had been in the USA from Turkey for only 4 days on an exchange program.

We came here twice in 5 days that we were in town. The cinnamon rolls were really good. The waitresses were all awesome. Kind of feels like an old fashioned diner, but not. Check it out.

Rated as "one of the best meals" because of the outstanding Fish Chowder served here. Unbelievably flavorful and full of fresh fish. Breakfast is great, too. And the service is unparalleled. Handy to downtown walkers in BBH.

Yum! Yum! Their cinnamon rolls are absolutely fabulous. Served warm, with a cup of very good coffee - sheer heaven! Omlettes and scrambled eggs were very good too. We liked it so much we ate breakfast here twice. A very small place, it's been a fixture in Boothbay Harbor for 40 years. They know how to do things right. Prices... More

Great little 'dive' that isn't so 'divvy'. Its got clean wooden tables and waitresses in authentic diner attire. Fantastic pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. Orange juice is great too.

We always enjoy this little café with the quirky seating/tables. Even the menu is designed to match one of the tables. We almost always come for breakfast and when in season-enjoy the Fantastic peach shortcake. The waitress even divided our orders so that each of us could share the still large portions. The muffins and coffee cakes are also outstanding... More
