Great Breakfast in Perkins Cove

Excellent breakfast, can be quite a wait in the busy summer season. Pancakes are excellent, coffee not my favorite, but it is amazingly hard to get great coffee at a breakfast place

Fun place and great restaurants. Be sure to check out the nice shops too. And walk across the bridge for a nice view of the harbor.

Glad we arrived early...can see why people wait. Cozy, pleasant staff, and great breakfast selection. Fresh. From traditional breakfast items to creative ME creations. We left very happy.

Great breakfast. Be prepared to wait in season. Small , but cozy. Recommended by locals more than once. I believe they are only open for breakfast.

We had breakfast here and loved the omelets! The place is small and the wait can be long but the staff and the food make it worthwhile! We tried the omelet special and enjoyed a vegetarian omelet at a great price! Coffee was excellent and endless!

Had breakfast here one weekday morning during the busy summer season. The waitress was perfectly friendly and attentive. I had blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup (for an up charge but always worth it to me). They were fantastic! Super light and just the right size, not too big. Had a couple eggs on the side cooked perfectly. Coffee was... More

The Cove Cafe is a great breakfast spot--charming atmosphere, delicious food, moderate prices, great friendly staff. But it is small with not too many tables, and only 2 parking spots--so the best bet is to walk there (right on Shore Road just above Perkins Cove) and not mind if you have to wait a bit--its worth it and just feels...

Breakfast at Cove Cafe is a must if you are visiting Ogunquit. From the giant omelets filled with fresh ingredients to the crazy huge blueberry pancakes this place is a standout. The food is fresh and all homemade. The family staff is super nice offers everything up with a smile. On summer weekends there can be a long wait because... More

My husband and I got an early start on our day trip to Maine. First stop was Ogunquit. Cove Cafe is a lovely walk from the town parking lot to Perkins Cove. The food, ambiance and service can't be beat. Then we were off to the Marginal Way to walk off a delightful and delicious meal!
