Two for two!

We first decided to wait for a table last year since this place is always crowded! We realized it was because of the great service and even better food! It was totally worth the wait so we came back on our annual Memorial Day weekend visit this year. The French toast will not disappoint, and the... read more

Take a stroll down gorgeous Shore Road into Perkins Cove to visit this small, cozy breakfast restaurant. We love gazing out the window with an ocean view in the distance while sipping hot coffee. Great staff, breakfast and location!

The fruit bowl is the freshest I have had. Eggs fresh and tasty. Homemade muffin. My husband loved his omelette.

We love coming to Ogunquit, just for the day. We will even hop in the car early and drive 1 1/2hrs just to have breakfast here and spend the day walking. This is our favorite place to have breakfast. I even hate to review it because then more people will go making it hard to get in. I am very... More

Title says it all! A wonderful quaint cafe in Perkins Cove, love the Omellets but the Crab Cake Benedict is off the hook!!!! Well worth any wait, as it gets crowded, you won't leave disappointed.

Very popular for breakfasts.....they offer no parking but no one seems to mind waiting in line for an outstanding breakfast. Wait staff is well trained and used to the hustle an bustle of the morning crowds. Food is well prepared and served very quickly but the pleasant staff, who seem to know almost everyone there, leaving you free to wander... More

This fantastic little breakfast spot has it all, delicious food great staff and a lot of local folks who know this is the place to be. Right near the entrance to Perkins Cove this place fills up on weekends in season, but they serve food fast and get through the crowds much more quickly than a certain well regarded breakfast...

We have been to Ogunquit many, many, many times. We don't live very far away and due to living in a tourist town, we don't usually get to go out and be tourists until Spring or Fall. There is no parking and you're paying such close attention to the oncoming cars and people walking on a semi-narrow road that bends,... More
