Nice park side take out and small restraunt.

Stopped by with the kids for ice cream and ended up having a great pizza then desert. Was very good. Being beside the little town square was nice to sit outside and eat.

Stopped by for lunch with a friend on a quiet Friday in late April. My wife had fish and chips, our friend had a fish sandwich, and I had crab cakes. All meals were skillfully prepared and substantial. The owner, Frances, talked us into dessert - blueberry pie and apple pie, and provided just the right amount of sass to... More

We had the Cajun grilled chicken wrap and the clam strips. We enjoyed the wrap more than the strips. We finished off our lunch with a piece of apple pie a la mode-which was delicious.

We shared the Island (pizza) and a bowl if clam chowder as a family and everyone left full. The Island is topped with a selection of seafood and taste surprisingly amazing.

These are two of our favorites but the whole menu is great! Don't miss for lunch, lite dinner, or an ice cream stop!

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, chose to try the Quietside Cafe in Southwest Harbor. Had simple meals of chef salad and chilli dogs, they were great. Topped it off with blueberry pie to go. Would do this again without hesitation.

We stop here every time we are in the area. Friendly owners, excellent food, good prices. The best clam chowder I've had in a long time. A large slice of fresh baked apple pie is a must.

This home-style cafe(/diner?) is a gem of Southwest Harbor. The prices are great and the food (especially the home-made pie!) brings you back to your mom's kitchen. The servers are friendly and the owner was working there and chatting with customers. I'll be back and you should be too!

This is a small mom-and-pop cafe, but the food was great and we really enjoyed chatting with the staff.
