Great hiker breakfast

If you have an appetite from hiking, you can't go wrong eating here. Great service. Pancakes and omelets were ordered at our table and they were plentiful and delicious. Don't forget to get donuts to go! We had squash donuts.

Lovely staff and great food. Everything was home-cooked perfectly and the homemade doughnuts are delicious - I had to buy some to go. Wish we had an AT Café down here by the beach in NJ - I'd be a regular for sure!

Great little breakfast/lunch place on the main street. Locals & tourist alike go there, good food. You'll probably strike up a conversation with a thru-hiker from Tenn or Cal. there. good place.

This was a ridiculous breakfast. We just spent the long weekend hiking Katahdin and it was JUST what we needed before we hit the road for 8 hours to head back home. We didn't order anything fancy but the coffee was excellent, the bacon was crisp and the eggs were perfect. The ONLY thing I could complain about is the... More

Wear your woolen plaids. Redder the better. Got an orange hunter's cap or vest? Or PARKA? You will fit in very well. Food is edible. Where the f else are you going to go? Dysart's? Not when you wanna climb Abol.

We enjoyed the Appalachian Trail Café. The food was good, but very expensive. It takes a while to be fed, however, they make things fresh and wholesome, so worth the wait. Supper is worth the money, but lunch is not. Just not enough food for the money! Very pleasant folks, though.

A classic for hikers. Food is fairly good. Whether you are on the AT or not, you have to go there if you are in Millinocket :-)

This diner is very good at what it does, which is creating a community of locals and hikers, particularly AT through hikers. It's also a bit rough around the edges in various ways, but then it's a land of hardy souls... We had four meals at the AT Cafe over the Columbus Day weekend. The first was a tasty and... More

Opens at 5:00 AM so it's a great stop on the way to Baxter State Park. Friendly service, excellent food, great value. We went there both mornings we were in town, and it will always be our go-to breakfast joint. Lots of hiking memorabilia, interesting decor, very oriented to the hiking and local community. Highly recommended.

At least my third trip here and we are always satisfied. The service is very good and the food is prepared well. I had an open face turkey made with real turkey the waitress told me they roasted in their kitchen-- well at least roasted the breast. French fries were processed- would like to see hand cut potatoes, but they... More
