We were in Northeast Harbour and were amazed by this little place. One might have expected the prices would be high but the suggestion came from the guy at the gas station in the village. Our sandwiches were huge, inexpensive and so delicious. We had our dog with us, so took turns staying with him while they were made. It... More

Crispy on the outside and moist on the inside sugared plain donut was very good. I sampled Mom's nontraditional Napolean which was filled with a rich delicious cream and buttery flaky crust. The maple walnut croissant was wonderful with a cup of hot coffee.

This place is a bakery/restaurant. We visited it for both breakfast and dinner. I would highly recommend their blueberry pastries for breakfast. For dinner, their seafood pizza is to die for! My wife and I were really impressed, it was very delicious!

We went for lunch and had the fish chowder, a crab roll, and a salad with shrimp. I found the fish chowder to be lacking in seasoning -- very bland. The crab roll was a disappointment as well. It was quite plain -- no zest to it. The salad was okay, but again nothing special.

Waitstaff was very good. The food was not. Restaurant is attached to a bakery so the bread should have been very good, but was was mediocre at best. Fried clams on the small side, served with cold fries. Seafood casserole the worse I have ever had: overdone dry fish, slimy scallops and lobster so overcooked it was crunchy. Very disappointing....

My husband and I recently had lunch at Colonel's. I remembered eating the fish chowder last year, and if you are a fan of fish chowder, I would highly recommend this. There is none better. Seriously. It is not some creamy, floury glop. This is elemental. Milky fish broth, chunks of haddock and large broken pieces of earthy potatoes. Served... More

Very loud at the height of breakfast with some screaming kids! But food very good. Try to arrive before 830 am if possible.

We were looking for a place to eat in this small, sleepy town. We found two places. This one had a lot of people walking up to it and few cars. We decided to try it. And we were glad. The restaurant, adjacent to the bakery was jammed. We had to wait about twenty minutes for a table,but it was... More

The food at Colonel's is just above average. Nothing too special, but the homemade bread makes the sandwiches a notch above average. The prices were a bit high, but it did appear that high quality ingredients were used.

The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is quick and delicious, and the menu is expansive. What more could one ask for? Perhaps a location in the stunning Acadia National Park, just a short walk from the coast?
