Great Local Eatery.

I was staying in Portsmouth, NH, less than a ten minute drive to Kittery. Happened upon the Firefly for breakfast with a colleague. Very good food and a reasonably priced. I don't know if they do it regularly but that had a house made cranberry bread that you could eat cold or grilled. I had it... read more

Have been here 4 times and always get a great breakfast with very good service. Eggs benedict, omelets, homemade breads and even the oatmeal were all great. Not fancy; but V good home cooking!

We visit Firefly about every weekend when we are in town. Good food, good prices and a friendly local atmosphere. All the standard breakfast fare, plus board specials that are special. From biscuits and gravy to SOS and breakfast sandwiches on a croissant oatmeal and fresh fruit cup, they have most anything you are craving. We'll be there tomorrow morning... More

Food selections were awesome and plentiful. Service was a little slow considering the season - more help needed?

We stopped here on our way out of Kittery, and we were unexpectedly delighted with the whole experience. The restaurant doesn't look like much inside or out, but the menu had loads of choices that made breakfast far more interesting than usual. They make French Toast from their own homemade breads (I think I had something like Lemon-Blueberry) and they... More

Do not come here unless you have lots of time. We think the cook manages one order at a time. The food is a good value but you must have patience.

The food was just what any other restaurant (including ihop) could provide. The biggest detractor was the timing/service. I showed up with three small kids. 50 minutes (conservatively) later, we had food. Now part of this was waiting, which was perfectly fine. Although seeing one person at a table for six who had finished his meal 30 min ago and... More

We stopped here on the way home from York. Very fast service, the food was great, the servers were very friendly. Nice homey place when you are away from home.
