After a beautiful hike up valley peak trail and acadia mountain trail we popped into this cozy little establishment for some ice cream. We entered the restaurant and it was very busy we sat at the bar- my girlfriend smelled pizza and we decided to split a small- the pizza was quite the spot hitter! After the pizza we each... More

Very small, unpretentious cafe with great food for the prices. Lobster pizza was excellent, the blueberry pie was also excellent. Ice cream very good. Staff were all friendly and efficient. There is something here for any taste; a very broad menu. Highly recommend it.

The food is some of the best. Ice cream and pies are yummy, and the owners are super! Great place to eat with good prices. Super lunch time place.

We stopped in for lunch, saw a lot of locals so figured this would be a good spot... We ordered lobster stew and lobster rolls, plus couldn't resist the giant coconut macaroons that were sitting on the counter. Lobster stew was amazing, lobster roll was great and we definitely enjoyed the macaroons. Nothing fancy about this place, but we will... More

TripAdvisor seemed to have more reviews than Yelp in this area (usually not the case) so we relied on TripAdvisor this time. We got the pulled pork sandwich, blueberry pie, crab cakes, and a few other items. We took everything to go and ate at Echo Lake inside of Acadia National Park and the food was all very good. I...

This is a quaint and charming little restaurant in the small town of Southwest Harbor Maine. There is a lunch menu as well as ice cream. I had a burger which was good. Our waitress was friendly and was familiar with the menu. Wait time was minimal. Would eat here again and next time try the ice cream.

Our family has been coming here for years. We love the delicious ice cream. The moose tracks are a combination of vanilla and blueberry with chocolate found nowhere else. Do try it here.

I didn't really get to have their food, but heard it was good from the rest of my family. Their pies on the other hand are wonderful, they have the perfect sweetness to them and will help cheer up any day.

Nice little cafe on main street. Seating outside (in front of the cafe and to the side). Greek pizza was delicious and service was very good. Lots of foot traffic for their ice cream. We didn't try it but it must be good based on the number of folks ordering.
