Check it out if you're in southern coastal Maine. Great breakfasts & fun to watch the air traffic come and go. We had a pontoon plane roll by right outside our window. Interesting choices on the menu. I had an omelet with lots of different stuff in it, and my wife had excellent pancakes. Large portions and reasonable prices.

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.

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"
