Quaint little café that has a full breakfast menu(omelettes, oatmeal, breakfast sandwiches, etc) and good espresso. Service is a bit slow but the food is worth the wait! Also has nice sandwiches and salads for lunch

My husband and I went here twice during our two day visit to Boothbay Harbor. Staff is very friendly, food served quickly and prices reasonable for sit down restaurant. We had breakfast sandwiches, made to order. Highly recommend you give this place a try.

Cute little place, I ordered the omelet special. Brie, spinach, and tomatoes. The tomatoes were not ripe, but other than that it was okay. Waitress could have been a big more attentive. Good value.

We like this place. We were more impressed during our trip last year than we were this year. The food is very good. Portions are on the smaller side, but so are the prices. The inside is charming, and decorated with a variety of knick knacks and ephemera. We still like it - it's a solid 4 stars; however, I... More

Stopped in at the behest of a friend who comes to Boothbay Harbor twice a year. I was not disappointed! Quick, charming service, quaint seating areas, delicious chowder and homemade specialties! You must stop by and see for yourself.

My wife and I visit Mama D's again on our trip to Boothbay Harbor in July 2015. We always enjoy our visit to Mama D's and have visited the restaurant each of the past 4 years. The restaurant is located in an old house which adds to the comfort of the meal. The food is excellent and very well prepared--we... More

A pretty basic sort of place and I was not impressed at all on the 12th. We were a party of 4 on the deck and it was pretty basic cooking. I had an omelet that was filled with those sliced jarred pickled jalapenos and cherry tomatoes. Overall it was bland and blah. The wife had a fruit bowl and... More

This is a must stop for breakfast in Boothbay Harbor. The food is excellent and the service is great with smiling faces. Always order the same thing however the waffles look yummy, maybe I'll order them on my next visit. Also the owner came and talked with us and told us the history of the restaurant. She is an excellent... More
