Perfect pre-hike breakfast

Came in two days in a row for breakfast. The first day, we stopped in right when they opened to take some breakfast and coffee to go on the way up the Mount Katahdin. The breakfast "burgers" (sandwiches) are very good and come on a home made English muffin. Deb was very helpful and got our order in... read more

A very nice place to eat. We arrived 15 minutes before closing time and the lady at the counter was very gracious. She told us not a problem, come on in! She was very nice and made us feel welcome. I had the meatloaf sandwich on homemade bread that she recommended and it was great! Very quaint place!

I'm sure anything would taster good after a trip to the summit of Katahdin but this place was exceptional! located just off the main street in Millinocket - hikers and locals mingle to share stories of the beauty and challenges in Baxter State Park. The friendly waitress Amber made the recommendation of Chicken Parmesan which was large enough for 2... More

Small little cafe with not much of the "street presence". Limited seating but lots of character. This place offers a variety of options for vegetarians and meat lovers. Favorite spot for hikers coming off the Appalachian trail. We stopped by for late lunch, hardly anybody was here.

Went for breakfast and the service was slow, however, they told us up front and the place was full. Had a veggie omlet with grilled homemade English muffin...yummy! Hubby had eggs, grilled English muffin and tots...very good. We also had homemade donuts and ended up getting more to bring home!

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!
