Can get coffee here at 5am

We had breakfast here one morning and it was good. Similar to a diner. I also got coffee to go in the morning as I headed to the shore to watch the sunrise. It is an interesting old place with stools where you can sit at the counter or tables and booths as well.

On my road trip through Acadia National Park, we stopped for an early morning cup of coffee. Our GPS suggested Coffee Cup Diner as a good coffee place, but when we stopped in, we knew we had to stay for breakfast, too. As a true, old-fashioned diner (they don't make 'em like this anymore), they'll flip your pancakes right on... More

We have been coming to Bar Harbor since 2002. We always stay on the "quiet" side of town. This is a perfect place for breakfast--good food, great prices, and plenty of coffee. We will return!

What a nice place to stop for breakfast. The food is well priced and fresh. Breakfast is excellent. The staff and owner make this place the best. You can eat here then go on the harbor walk or walk down the street to the middle of town. Definitely a great place to get a coffee.

We ate lunch here after the July 4 th parade.. Very casual family run place. Great hot dog( famous red Maine dog) and awesome sweet potato fries. My husband said his burger was great as well with delicious crispy onion rings. Service was good and very friendly! Quick and inexpensive...try it for lunch!

Great spot for a hometown breakfast. Staff were open with suggestions, answered our questions, and provided some great advice for the next leg of our vacation. Coupled with a convenience store, with a seperated laundromat, it was a great spot for us to do some laundry and grab a solid breakfast.

I love a good diner. The staff is friendly and quick to offer advice for travelling in and around the area. The coffee cups stay full, the food is great and very reasonable (breakfast sandwiches for under $5), and you aren't elbow to elbow with other tourists. There's even a little shop attached with ice, coffee to go, snacks, etc.... More

This was my third visit to this tourist eatery here in Bar Harbor. This is one of the few "year-round" cafe's on the island so to survive it employs local employees and must cater to the locals or suffer the consequences. This is your local breakfast and lunch menu and I was in the mood for a hot dog. I... More

Stopped for lunch here today and don't think I will return. I read alot of the reviews and can't say I agree with them or that this eatery is worth the money. Yeah I know everything is expensive these days, but $24.00 with tip is a bit much for the food and service we got for lunch. I had the... More
