Since we would be staying at the Samoset Resort for a week I toured restaurants in the area in tripadvisor. It proved to be a good source of information on the area and restaurants. We had breakfast here, it was delicious and worthwhile. The prices were fair for a resort area. The staff was friendly and inviting. Since we plan... More

We had a Saturday lunch with our family. There's a great choice of food on the menu, and the service was excellent. We would eat here again.

We've visited Home Kitchen Cafe 5 times now, and have never been disappointed. Yesterday I had the Burrito at Home, and it was fantastic! The homemade salsa was perfect (and I'm a salsa snob). Very friendly and fast service, great atmosphere. Love it!

I do not know why this is such a popular place. The breakfast all day menu must be what people come for because everything else is over-priced and not very good. Yesterday I had a dried out over-cooked burger that I ordered "medium" and had to put ketchup on just to get it to slide down. My husband had a... More

I am employed just on the other side of the fence to this restaurant. Not only have I been in the food business for years from NY, Philly, and Maine, but I make it my business to eat there as much as possible. I have been dining there since they opened, waited thru food withdrawls during their remodel, and have... More

Good food, good service, interesting interior. We wanted to eat there on Sunday morning, but it opens at 8 and we needed to eat at 7:30 because of our schedule. We will go back when in the area.

We appreciate your feedback. Your review does not mention which day your were here, but weekends can be very busy and there can be a wait. All our food is made to order. Our chowder is only heated upon order. If it was a such a day, we are sorry that you felt your wait was too long. A member... More

The place is always full! A testament to the good food served. Different dishes served in unique ways. And the cinnamon rolls are wonderful!
