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.

Located on the main drag this tiny restaurant is big on service and great on food. You won't leave hungry. The waitresses couldn't have been nicer or more helpful as we were first time travelers through the region and asking for directions. Food hot and tasty.

A lovely cafe. Very friendly and quite cosy. We tried the AP trail ice cream challenge bowl between a group. It's enormous and can't believe one person could finish it!!

This is a really fun place. The food is great and the people there are so friendly. We've eaten here before and everything we had was delicious. The home made English muffins are super. The customers are also friendly. AT through hikers eat here.

Took a bit to get our meals, but it was very much worth the wait. Cool atmosphere with local flavor. We'll be back next summer :)
