Small diner downtown that does a great turnover with some inspired breakfast combinations and some solid basics. Homefries a bit on the oily side for my liking. Great gourmet coffee (help yourself) and scones. Come early, this place is superbusy and seems like the go too place for morning grub for the locals not cooking for themselves. Grab a booth... More

I had the best omelet of my life here, and the way the service operates at this jammin little place is terrific! Loved it.

We stopped here on a recommendation for breakfast from a local, and it was a winner! Crowded, very casual, but very efficient in handling the rush. Give your name to the girl with the yellow pad, order your coffee (lots of great choices), and wait to be seated while drooling over the menu. Gluten free buckwheat waffles for my wife... More

Very cool restaurant!! We revisited this restaurant while we were visiting Boothbay Harbor because it's one of our favorite places in Camden! I have never had better blueberry pancakes anywhere! Get there early for breakfast cause it's busy. Although the restaurant was under new management, it was still fabulous. Very creative lunches! Like I said, very cool place!

This restaurant, under new ownership this year, continues to serve top quality food for a very reasonable price. It is our go-to place in Camden for lunch. Order your food at the counter, pick up your beverage from the beverage case, find a booth, and wait to be served. We have had the outstanding fresh fruit, yoghurt and granola which... More

We stopped in for breakfast early one morning and even mid week it was busy so we ended up sitting at the counter and people watching out the window which was fun. I loved my breakfast wrap which was filled with eggs, potato, salsa and turkey sausage. It was huge and filling though so I could have easily shared it.... More

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
