The food was great and were seated quickly! The place is small, no doubt. The parking is really difficult but you can park and walk a little. It is worth it!

The Cove Cafe isn't very large ... but the food and people are well worth a short wait. You can't help but relax while you are there! Make it a stop!

We love to wake up super early and head down to the cove for breakfast at this charming little cafe. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. They have no problem accommodating my special dietary needs. The food is always excellent. My husband tells me that they have the best blueberry muffins in town. I have to take his... More

Cove Café is a must try for anyone looking for a great breakfast in Ogunquit. They have an extensive breakfast menu and the crabmeat omelet was great. Staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Quaint little New England feel.

We tried to get into the Cove Cafe one morning but the line was out the door and there was no free parking around. The next day we smartened up and showed up on foot. The coffee was good, but more importantly, the cinnamon roll french toast was INCREDIBLE! It was literally 3 cinnamon rolls, dredged and cooked and covered... More

Everything here is clearly freshly made from the pancakes (no boxed batter mixes here!) to the hash, fruit cups and omelettes. This week we had the 2 eggs, fruit salad and croissant for $8.95. The fruit salad was freshly prepared so all of the fruit was whole and brightly colored. They included fresh raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, melons, grapes, with... More

Went here for breakfast and had never been before. Tiny but cute cafe where the food was fine, and the service was nice. Walking distance of Perkins Cove and even the center of town (by where Route 1 meets Shore Road) is less than a mile.

As you desend into Perkins Cove, it's on your right. Can' t park? Just drive right into the cove area an there is parking. After a fabulous breakfast, you will want to explore the cove on foot. Many little shops and you can access the Marginal Way. ( a must do). I had Belgium waffle with fresh strawberries an homemade... More
