The breakfast menu is the biggest ever, however execution is no better than other good restaurants. Service, however, leaves something to be desired - it took almost an hour for our order for 4 persons to arrive, the 5th person had to wait even longer! Maybe this was an anomaly?

We enjoyed breakfast at Home Kitchen TWICE during our recent trip to the Rockland area. First was on a Sunday morning when they were crazy busy. We waited about 15 minutes - well worth it! It was so awesome we came back on Wednesday morning before leaving the area at the end of our trip. Be sure to get the... More

So many options, so hard to choose. When I saw homemade corned beef hash that was it! Food was really good. Sticky buns are huge & sinful! WOW!

It was a beautiful day out so we sat at the upper deck. This is our second time here and we were not disappointed. My husband had the Corned Beef and Swiss Cheese omelet and I had the Meat Lovers Cast Iron omelet. Both came with toast and the coffee was endless. A great place for breakfast.

Home kitchen serves excellent breakfasts, with great service. Their coffee is also terrific. Sweet rolls are a must. Gluten free options are also a draw for those with dietary restrictions.

Ate here 2/3 of our days. We RARELY eat twice in the same place on a trip. We had two different types of eggs benedict. Good coffee. Friendly service. only about a 10 minute wait. It was such a great meal!

We are always looking for great breakfast places, and the Home Kitchen may be one of the best we've ever been to....line waiting before it even opened, now that's a good sign, and they didn't disappoint. Food exceptional, service just as good and very friendly. Don't miss!

Absolutely delicious food...fantastic staff! Servers that weren't even our server came by to offer suggestions and offer help throughout the meal. Our server was a gem! Wish I could head back there for breakfast or lunch every now and then....but it is a long drive from Maine to Wisconsin.

We arrived at the restaurant at 9 AM and there was a 20 minute wait. but the real wait was once we were seated and having to wait for our food. There were numerous other tables that were sat 10 to 15 minutes after us but we're served long before ours. We eventually received our food at about 10:20. Every... More

A large Banner draped across the front, (see Photo); declared the best breakfast in New England, it may not be the best but it has got to be close. The menu goes way beyond the norm. my wife and I shared the breakfast burrito and something called The "Range", I couldn't begin to describe it, you just need to order... More
