The small restaurant is decorated with cowhide designs. It is always crowded and the reason is because the food is SUPER! It is worth the wait at any time and you will always be satisfied. There are large portions, great coffee and wonderful croissants. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are daily specials, but you must have breakfast here.... More

Visited on a weekday (crowds are just too long on the weekends) and got a parking spot, booth (yeah) without waiting. The place was hopping, service was good and so many choices. They have much different varieties of omelets than the local diner (my bacon, mushroom, swiss) was delicious and cooked as requested! Coffee is good too. It's always busy... More

This is literally "the best breakfast on LI" evidenced by the (sometimes) excruciating wait (no matter when you arrive) combined with the fact that they only accept cash. Good for you guys at Maureen's; they've had it all figured out for years. One can not eat anything here that is not exceptional. And over the years, my group and I... More

One of the best places on LI for breakfast. It's best to go on a weekday if possible, as lines aren't as bad. Specials are great!

I've been here for both breakfast and lunch, all I can say is YUM! Yes, there is usually a wait and its definitely not a quiet place but the service is friendly, food is excellent and plentiful so much so I usually end up taking home a doggy bag!

Great food...great service. Just wished they would make the place bigger so I didn't have to wait so long. But it's worth it.

Have been here several times..service and food are always excellent. Have yet to ever come here and just get seated prepare for at least a 30 minute wait. Excellent pancakes and breakfast in general is very good. Décor is very cute (cow themed)

I lived a mile away from Maureen's Kitchen for 6 years and I've only eaten here a few times. Breakfast is delicious. Better than iHop, better than a diner. The specialty pancakes are delicious and definitely worth getting a short stack. *** BE PREPARED TO WAIT FOR A TABLE!*** I just ate there this past Sunday and waited 35 minutes.... More

I really cannot understand all the hype about this place. I was visiting my daughter and went there the Sunday before Columbus Day. There was a line out the door and outside also. We left,went back on another day. Not too long to wait. The lady showed uss our table,dropped the menus on the table and we just assumed we... More

My husband is from Long Island so when we visit he always wants to take me to a diner for breakfast, which to me has been like eating at Denny's and a total waste of calories! This time I did some research and insisted we go to Maureen's Kitchen - thank goodness! The food was great! They give you huge... More
