A Quality Breakfast

the WACO is the only place in or near Eastport for breakfast. Service is brisque but good and coffee very good. Yeahs Benedict and French Toast are also very good. The side of hm was good. I recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

We ate lunch today at the Waco Diner and enjoyed every bite. I had the Fisherman's Breakfast and my husband had the blueberry stuffed waffles. Neither of us regretted our choice. Our server was very friendly and efficient. If you are in Eastport, don't miss this restaurant. They close early so check their times before you go.

First stop after first night in Eastport due to two recommendations. Had breakfast. Nice location, beautiful morning. It got very busy after we arrived. Server was great and was working her butt off to keep up. Looked like there were only 2 servers. Had a breakfast scramble. Was okay. Not very flavorful. Bland coffee. Husband had orange juice that he... More

Without a doubt this is the best place in Eastport for breakfast. From the usual eggs, ham, bacon, etc. you can order the smoked salmon, eggs benedict or the veggie benedict. There's daily breakfast specials and the service is excellent.

Used to dine her back in the 80s with friends, and I don't think it's changed one bit with the exception of the addition on the back. Best fish sandwich ANYWHERE!

A reminder of old Maine,where the community comes together to talk and eat,where visitors are made to feel welcome. The food is great, the staff is amazing. This restaurant is a jewel.

This is supposedly the oldest diner in Maine (at least according to the t- shirt the waitress had on.) Lots of character with a diner style bar and stools in front and a real bar in the back. Serviceable place filled with locals, always a good sign. We sat on the patio and ordered a cheeseburger and the Cajun haddock... More

When you enter, the setting is a typical diner, with counter and a few booths. However, there is a dining room in back with a lovely view of the water as well as outside seating on a deck. The prices are very reasonable, we ordered the lunch special consisting of fish chowder, seafood roll and coleslaw for $8.95. The chowder... More

Traditional diner with all the things you expect. Not fancy, but good service. The best place for a full breakfast.
