The brisket sandwich was filled with thick slices of meat; can get crowded. Staff is friendly & food was very good. Dill pickles are sour & great. Pass on the smoothies.

Just returned from Camden. We had pancakes they were gummy and not well cooked. The coffee was weak. The atmosphere may be nice but the food is terrible. peek in but don't eat here.

Read the trip advisor reviews and all the other travel guide reviews so with ultra high expectations we had breakfast/lunch on a Tuesday afternoon in August. As expected the place was jumping, as expected they did a great job of handling what appeared to be chaos, as expected the place has casual character (aka old), as expected the service was... More

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
