You can walk here from Perkins Cove. It is a cute little family style cafe. One of the managers brought his children with him to work and they were very well behaved. You didn't even know they were there. I had egg whites, ham, home fries, and toast. The service was fast and efficient. The food was tasty. No complaints... More

My first review of this place was not too good BUT I am so glad we returned because the food completely redeemed itself! We share 1 blueberry pancake which was light and fluffy and each had the most fabulous omelets...more than enough to feed a hungry hiker! Glad we returned and gave it another chance, now we're hooked!

We were in Ogunquit for eight days this year and ate breakfast at the Cove Cafe every single morning. From the crab cakes to the fruit waffle, hands down the best breakfast spot in Ogunquit. Jeb, his family, and the wait staff are excellent.

Absolutely delicious breakfasts. Place is not large, but they draw a good crowd. Food and service is worth the wait. Located just outside Perkins Cove. Very clean and very good service. Highly recommend.

We have been to this restaurant every year but this year we were disappointed. The food is good but expensive. There are other places that are just as good and don't charge as much. I was shocked when I saw we were charged $3 for a thimble full of maple syrup. I understand they need to have an upcharge, but... More

An OK place to stop if you're near Perkins Cove, but there are only two parking spaces and the food, at best, is only so-so. I'd go elsewhere.

We first discovered the Cove Restaurant during our annual vacation to Ogunquit ME 4 or 5 years ago. It is now one of our favorite stops. We ate breakfast there this year again. The food was first rate. The service could not have been any better. Some days there is a wait for a table, but it is worth it.... More

This was our first experience at this little cafe after many trips to Ogunquit. What a jewel! The service and the food was extraordinary. I had the lobster, spinach, tomato and cheese omelet. It was delicious. My husband had the French Toast with Blueberry Sauce and cream cheese. He enjoyed every morsel. The menu included many interesting choices as well... More

By far the best breakfast place we've ever been to. It was well worth the wait. The omelet I had was loaded with fresh lobster....there was more in it than the 1.5#(??) lobster I had for dinner last night!!! Crab cakes are pure crab....no filler. Service is also EXCELLENT!!

A must stop for anyone in the Perkins Cove area. We were in on the 11th and by all means do arrive on the earlier side with the limited parking. We went with the eggs benedict and french toast with mascarpone cheese and blueberry syrup. Both were big hits with us!! The coffee was excellent and we found out afterwards... More
