Breakfast with a View.

The food is very good and the view from the many windows is great. You get to see planes come and go. The staff is very friendly and creates a family atmosphere"

Although the raucous sounds of people having a good time is a positive sign for any establishment, in this small cafe, it can be distracting for some. The food is good and what you would expect, and the prices are reasonable.

Great little old fashion breakfast diner. Service was the best. Waitress came right over with coffee as soon as we sat down. Refills were available when needed. Large selection for breakfast. Lots of memorabilia on the walls. Not for the young, more for the 50 plus age group which I fall into. The only negatives I can say are that... More

I ate here once and was not impressed. The food was just ok, nothing special. The view was ok, we didn't see any planes coming or going. The prices were expensive, for what you get, you get a better meal at home! I don't think I would go back again

We didn't even know this little place was there. We got to watch the planes come and go while we ate. It was good. We didn't have to wait long, not too crowded. The names of the breakfast menu were cool. after pilots and such. Newspaper clippings on the walls were interesting. pretty nice place.

the food and service were excellent, the portions were great and the atmosphere was very friendly. All around it was a great place to eat. The only downfall was they have no grilled home fries.

Great breakfast.We went early enough so that waiting wasn't an issue.Large selection of choices. Home fries and the homemade beans were very tasty. Fun to watch planes take off. Not a large place though so maybe not a choice for large group.

Been to the Cockpit twice now. Both times had the same server. She was inattentive and reached right across my friend's face to pick up an empty plate without even saying "excuse me". When my friend was asked if he'd like more coffee he replied "no thank you", but may I have a glass of water please?" She vanished and... More

Went to the Cockpit cafe for breakfast while in Maine. My wife,granddaughter and I placed our order. The breakfast was terrific. Portions were very good. We all agreed it was the best breakfast we've had in a while. Service was very good. We go to Maine often and will definately be going back. It is well worth the trip.

Waited about three quarters of an hour to get in. Line was out into the parking lot queue up in front of entrance. Only after we were finally seated did we discover they do not take credit/debit. There was no indication whatsoever on the front entrance that they are not sophisticated enough to accept payment like many area establishments. If... More
