We ate lunch at Boynton-McKay yesterday almost by chance. The reviews had not told us which of Camden's many restaurants served lunch, and we didn't want a big, lengthy lunch, because we were going out for a five-course dinner. Boynton-McKay was perfect. We both had quesadillas. Mine was Greek with feta cheese and lamb gyros, and my husband's was chicken.... More

Nice casual, friendly place for take out. Great food. We recommend savoring their cooking while overlooking Camden harbor! Delicious food, delicious view.

We just visited Camden yesterday and friends who live nearby suggested we grab a bite at Boynton-McKay after a lovely afternoon on nearby Lake Megunticook. It was a Sunday mid-afternoon and we had no problem getting booth seating. After placing our orders at the counter, we enjoyed looking at all of the old drugstore paraphernalia from the building's prior incarnation.... More

This is an excellent choice for a hearty, filling breakfast in Camden. We went there early on a weekend to avoid the lines - there isn't a ton of seating in the restaurant, but we were seated promptly. We both ordered pancakes, which were really big and excellent. I'm sure everything else on the menu is really good as well.

I go here as much as possible, everything is delicious, sometimes it is too crowded in the summer and then it's great to take out...so close to the harbor park. But if you want to eat in, it's never a long wait. The lunch is good, but the breakfast is amazing. Friendly service and great relaxed atmosphere

This is a good place for breakfast or lunch. The guy at the counter was funny and has a good way with people. Nothing fancy, a smaller menu but all good items. Reasonable prices. It can get crowded in a hurry, but the few tables seem to turn over at a good rate. Also, you can get the food to... More

Really a carry out that has a limited amount of seating. Order at the back, they bring to your table if they find you or hang around and have it bagged and take out. Old drugstore with unique items on shelves from that period.

I've lived in Camden for several years, and can say without a doubt that Boynton McKay is the best the city has to offer for either breakfast or coffee. From the reasonable prices, delicious food and coffee and positively lovely charming and helpful staff, not to mention the wonderful atmosphere of the restaurant, this is my favorite breakfast restaurant in...
