This was the most affordable meal of our entire vacation. We actually ate the morning before our hike, but it gave us good fuel. Come here when you're in Millinocket and want a tasty, cheap meal.

I still enjoy the good food and friendly service & cozy atmosphere. Homemade breads, muffins & donuts make it homy. Love their fish chowder, corn chowder and more. Used to enjoy being able to enjoy breakfast anytime? No more after 2pm. Eggs, pancakes, bacon & home fries & coffee for a reasonable price..... No more. Run you about $11. Hasn't... More

Totally enjoyed looking at all the signatures of all the hikers who have made the entire trail. Also, chatting with the owner about stories on the trail. Oh, and the food was good too.

Excellent food! The perfect spot to eat before hitting the AT or other adventure. We ate there on our first day in town, and enjoyed it so much we went back the second day as well.

Small spot in a small town but LOTS of heart. An obvious destination for AT and Katahdin hikers as well as locals. -- so good we came back the next day!

We visited this small, friendly cafe twice on our visit to Millinocket - once for lunch and once for dinner. The service is fast and friendly. Both my husband and I had an outstanding spinach salad with grilled chicken for lunch. It was so good that when I overheard another diner asking the server about healthy menu choices, I recommended... More

N45°39.407' W68°42.544' Mt Katahdin may be the official finish of the 2179-mile Appalachian Trail, but no thru hiker leaves without visiting the Appalachian Trail Café on Highland avenue in Millinocket. Besides leaving their “call sign” on ceiling tiles with their classmates, they show of their beards (men only) and tell stories about endured hardship during months of walking from Georgia... More

This place is one of the only places to get an excellent homemade meal just outside of Baxter. The service was pretty friendly, but the best part was the food, the hot turkey sandwich was delicious, with potatoes and cottage cheese. Warm and fresh, the bread was one if the best parts. I only have two "negative" things to warn... More

This is a classic small town diner with a serious Appalachian Trail Theme, complete with hikers! It was a rainy day when I stopped in and the cafe was crowded with those wondering spirits who had just gotten off the trail and jumped at the chance to join a strangers table for some intellectual banter. Trail finishers sign the ceiling... More

The AT Café is one of the friendliest places to eat you'll find - feels like home the minute you walk in the door. Service was excellent and personable, and the food was satisfying. The "Breakfast Burger" is perfect for a pre-hike meal, and the baked goods are wonderful - homemade donuts, English muffins, cinnamon rolls...We ate at the AT... More
