Known for their blueberry pancakes

I've gone to Boynton-McKay for many years, after reading a very positive magazine review about their blueberry pancakes. That's what brought me there, but I've found that all the breakfast meals are very good. The café is in an old pharmacy so the atmosphere is great, with both booths and tables... read more

We USED to love Boynton. Everything we ate was wonderful, and we were repeat customers. We'd been away for awhile, and upon returning my husband pointed out how much the restaurant had changed, apparently due to new ownership. We ordered our food to go, and it was a disaster. The food we once loved, looked forward to, craved, and went... More

Ordered the boynton breakfast sandwich and relieved a egg, random greens, and cheese all mixed together in between a English muffin. I was far from impressed. If you are going to add in additional items, please make the customer aware...

My wife and I have been going here for several years. It is very popular with the locals. It recently changed owners and the new ones seem to be carrying on the tradition of good food in a good atmosphere. I highly recommend you give it a try.

I had a skillet breakfast here back in October on the way to Bar Harbor. It was delicious! I chose the option with veggies, omelet, and home fries plus toast. The price wasn't too high, from what I can recall. I felt full for the rest of my trip. I like how the service works, it's a bit like Panera,... More

A locals favorite for coffee, conversation, or wonderful breakfast and luncheon entrees. Don't miss out on the huevos rancheros or the breakfast wrap. Pastries are also fresh and very reasonably priced.

This place was mobbed with locals which was an indication of the food and it was a great place to have lunch, fun menu with fair prices.

Came here for breakfast with my Mum who is a seasoned veteran. The rye toast was amazing, if my taste buds served me correctly, it had flecks of rosemary and roasted red onions in it. Just delicious. The eggs and homefries were good too, pretty run of the mill, but good. The coffee was very good, full bodied, not watered... More

Great place to stop for morning coffee. Many varieties of coffee and great fresh baked goods. A spot to meet the locals and find out what is happening in town!

We'd read the reviews on Tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. Their breakfasts are very good and reasonably priced. They do a Maine interpretation of Huevos Rancheros, so don't expect what you'd get in Santa Fe or Taos, but the eggs are fresh and the presentation is creative. You wait for a table, then place your order at the back and pour... More
