good breakfast food

located on a side street would probably not see it if you were not looking for it. Good blueberry pancakes. Service was so so. The waitress was to the point with no small talk at all. I had to get up and go ask her for more coffee. So if you are looking for good breakfast for a good price... read more

No wait. Friendly waitstaff. Menu small but it's your typical townie breakfast joint. Eggs, pancakes, and French toast. Food was tasty and cheap. Kids were happy with their meals. My husband and I enjoyed our food. Nothing extravagant but simple. Homemade bread was a plus. Came here 14 years ago- place hasn't changed:) definitely a good choice and would rather... More

Good, fast service like you would expect at a diner. We ate breakfast there and we enjoyed our food. If you are looking for frills and high end dining, this isnt the place for you! If you want quick, cheap and good food this is a great find off the beaten path.

This is a friendly small cafe with wonderful service and food. They had good choices and the food was prepared to get the most flavor from the foods. It is not fancy, but it is clean, pleasant, and reasonable.

This is obviously the local's breakfast place in this tourist town. It is located in a low-roofed strip mall. The decor is basic, homey and clean. The service is no-nonsense, but friendly. This is the place for a good, straight-forward, hearty breakfast. The toast is very good. You can tell it is homemade bread. The bacon is very meaty, even... More

Anywhere else this is just an average breakfast place with somewhat indifferent service. The prices are good and the food is O.K. The cinnamon toast is not that great.

Breakfast food was fine as most are, however a few issues. No substitution for home fries, gave no options. they serve the cheap corn syrup for pancakes. two dollar charge to upgrade to real Maple syrup. Not the happiest waitresses either, borderline rude.

You really have to know this place is here! It's tucked away in a nondescript shopping area off the main street on the "quiet side" of MDI. We had breakfast with friends who live nearby, and everything was great! The service is prompt and friendly, attentive without being overbearing. They had some home-baked breads that were very good and unusual.... More

I really love this restaurant! The burgers are great but the staff is even better. They are very nice and friendly and they give the restaurant a very warm feel. I am a local myself and if you are looking for an authentic Maine cafe this is definitely the place to go.

Delicious breakfast; fresh, homemade real food. Great real down home atmosphere & people. We love to camp in the area in the summer & go in the late fall for our Anniversary & we make it a point to go to Brandon & Laura's cafe.
