The aviation theme of this café is perfect for flying enthusiasts like my husband and I. The food is also delicious. The lobster omelets are great as well as their homemade buttermilk biscuits!! The café has a good view of ramp and taxiway of the airport so there are always a variety of planes to view out the window while... More

Oh my god, I live here in maine and I go here any chance I get. The atmosphere is great, and I love the chocolate chip pancakes. Not very expensive at all, and it is speedy service. While you eat you can look at model airplanes and newspaper clippings. Great place to eat.

We have had breakfast at the Cockpit Cafe. Each time we have had breakfast, the food has been excellent and very reasonable. The waitressing staff is excellent and very pleasant. When you go for breakfast at the Cockpit Cafe, remember to bring cash because no credit or debit cards are accepted.

Good solid home company. You get your money's worth here. Not fancy because they concentrate on eating good at a fair price. The coffee is good and rich - like a diner.

Have eaten at the Cockpit over twenty times for breakfast. When I'm in the mood for eggs benedict this is where I head. But beware this place is not a secret, if you head in on a Saturday or Sunday morning be prepared for a short wait, it's a favorite of many locals.

My family goes to this restaurant 2-3/month for breakfast. The food and waitstaff are great, breakfast portions are huge and even if the wait looks imposing, the line moves quickly.

I have eaten breakfast and lunch here. Good food for a good price. It is right at the airport looking at the planes parked on the tarmac.
