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

We ate breakfast here every day we were in Millinocken. Great choices and make sure to have a fresh donut. The baker has been there for 35 years. Every thing here is fresh and delicious. Also a great place for vegetarians as they have many options and understand vegetarian diet. We arrived as the thru hikers from the applachian trail... More

This place opens at 5am so that people can eat and be on their way good and early, the food was tasty and plentiful - I had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup (had to leave one as it was too much) and my husband had corn beef hash with eggs. Both were well cooked and lovely. The waitress was... More

this was the perfect ending to peak bagging kathadin. you can deal without a shower (cold mtn. stream gets your attention) - without a comfy bed - freeze dried food and missing your family - up to a point. then the minute you step into this place, you are greeted like family. they make the food as you like it....

Enjoyed breakfast here a couple of mornings during our stay in the area. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly and efficient. They make donuts daily, and they are good.
