Good food, locally popular

We had the 'Rubin' and gyro, both excellent. Busy at 12:15, short wait, good service. Will return. Don't need to spend 100 characters to say we liked it.

My favorite breakfast spot is the home Kitchen Cafe. What a treat to be welcomed instantly, shown to a cozy table, and served cheerfully. The food is to die for...traditional old fashioned breakfast with special options such as polenta or fresh salsa transform the humdrum into the extraordinary. Everything is fresh. And now they also serve lunch and dinner. This... More

They have a great variety of healthy lunch and breakfast options and if you get a seat on the upstairs deck it has a beautiful view as well. Food is different and creative with great flavor.

Sunday Pastrami and Swiss with spicy brown mustard and home fries and a Bloody Mary concluded our weekend of leisure. A definite must see. Breakfasts looked unreal; next time we'll try it!

Best eggs Benedict I have ever eaten. Three meals in three days. All the food we had was great. The staff were fabulous. Can't wait for our next trip from Montana.

I LOVE this place. They have a great variety of meals with incredible breakfast options. I love ordering their homemade bread on any kind of day. The staff are always friendly and attentive, making sure my cup was always full and I had everything I needed. For my time and money, it's the best place for breakfast in town!

We were in Maine for a week on vacation and enjoyed Home Kitchen so much that we ate there 4 times for either breakfast or lunch. They check all the boxes for breakfast...home fries, service, coffee, pancakes, omelettes, and sides were all terrific. The home fries and huevos rancheros were especially good, and eggs were always cooked exactly to order.... More

In the past few years this former gas station (hard to recognize that now) has emerged as one of thee favorite restaurants in Mid-Coast Maine--especially for its special breakfasts and lunches. Just remember that it has fame and popularity now, and there might be a wait on a busy day.

Loved it. Friendly service and fabulous food. Huevos Rancheros are delicious. Tortillas tender, heat level perfect, eggs fresh. I'm a critical diner and this is fantastic. Can't wait to return.

I dont have a lot to say just that this was the best medium rare bacon cheese burger I have ever had. Customer service was efficient even when busy as all get out and the prices are reasonable.
