We stopped into The Cove Cafe after packing our car to leave after a wonderful week in Perkins Cove. We were not disappointed. The breakfast specials of the day were wonderful. Friendly service and delicious coffee,too. The cook rings a ship's bell when an order is up; that was cute, as we were on the harbor. It was a great... More

Had breakfast there 3 morning's on our last trip to Ogunquit. Really convenient to where we stay across the at the Riverside Motel, open promptly at 7AM. A small restaurant, seating maybe 20 or so plus a half dozen at the counter. Had scrambled eggs and sausage one day, blueberry pancakes with bacon the next and a western omelet the... More

We went here on some recommendations. When we walked in I got a terrible smell - like dirty sewer. I thought it was just my imagination and let it go - thinking it would pass. We ordered our food which was just okay, nothing special. My coffee mug had seen better days - the decals on the outside of it... More

We came here as an alternative to the popular Amore. We do like Amore, but wanted to change it up. I loved the menu options here! I had the muffin, egg and fruit selection, it was perfect! My husband had the cinnamon bun french toast and he loved it! It doesnt have alot of seating at all! Parking was really... More

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

Great breakfast spot. Some great options and very family friendly. It is small so the wait can be hard sometimes - plan accordingly!

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.

This is a quaint little breakfast restaurant, owned and operated by experienced restaurateurs, Jeb and Heidi Dufresne, who also own and operate a great, Ogunquit, water front restaurant during the day and evening on Beach Street. It can get a little crowded. I would suggest parking in the lot which is a five minute walk into Perkins Cove and after... More
