Casual atmosphere with surprisingly good food. We have been there for breakfast each time we visit Camden. The blueberry pancakes are SO delicious! This time my husband ordered the brisket sandwich, which I tasted, and can honestly say that the brisket is about the best I've had. Expect low key, relaxed service, but if you are in the Camden area,... More

Trip Advisor wants me to write 100 words to tell you the simple truth - this is really good coffee. Yes drink your coffee here. Sorry we did not eat here.

We had the very best sandwiches here -- creative & scrumptious! The slow-cooked brisket was delightfully tasty... & the BLTA was packed full of delicious ingredients. All very well prepared. We highly recommend this place... & it's open every day (serving breakfast & coffees, too). Very casual -- first order at the back counter & then either sit in a... More

Handy location in the center of town with comfortable tall booths and a great decor for those walking Camden. We found this a fine spot for coffee plus something yummy - including a very good breakfast. It looks like they make fresh-baked treats each day for afternoon strollers (a variety of pies on one day, berry shortcakes on another) and... More

Loved the old drug store building location. Not crazy about ordering at the counter and they did get my husband's order wrong, but the food was really good. They have really good fancy coffees and teas and you can go in and get those to go.

We waited for the new owner to settle in and we are glad we did. The place has been cleaned up (essential), spruced up and better use is now made of the dusty old shelves. Menu is healthy/delicious and Coke products afficionados can forget getting drinks here as the fridge is now graced with much more wholesome beverages. Thank you!... More

As a local it's always nice to find your "spot" that you go to for daily coffee. It had become a habit of mine, grabbing a coffee and delicious pastry from Boynton this spring. The girl behind the counter remembered my order by my second visit..but then something sad happened. She was let go when new owners came into place.... More

Never disappointing! B&M always serves up a fresh, hot breakfast. The chef uses local ingredients and the waitstaff is friendly. It is super laid back and private with tall booths and old fashioned high top counters.

A local sent us here & reported it as her favorite breakfast spot. It's great! So glad we went. Charming, comfortable atmosphere with seat yourself, serve yourself coffee and you order food at kitchen. Traditional and fresh dishes all with high quality ingredients! Makes such a difference...Best blueberry pancakes I've ever eaten. They obviously have a passion for bringing out... More

Small, cozy, any day place to eat. Don't miss the skillets or baked goods. A place where locals hang out throughout the year but tend to avoid during the busy summer months cuz there are too many tourists.....
