This coffee shop is located at the dock for most of the boat tours and cruises in Bar Harbor. It's perfect for a quick stop if you wanna grab a snack. They have homemade brownies, bagels, blueberry pie, honey roasted turkey sandwich, ham sandwich, chips, yogurt, LOBSTER ROLL (2 rolls just for 15 dollars) which is very worth it and... More

We just got off a boat from a lighthouse tour and needed a quick lunch and ducked into this little café on the pier and had a great experience. The place has only about four tables so taking food to go is a necessity many times. We had the lobster roll which was fantastic -- packed with lobster and very... More

went on recommendation from someone and we were not disappointed. Very nice little restaurant. Not a great place if you are in a hurry- but that was part of the charming atmosphere. Blueberry pancakes were wonderful and the coffee was great. Very dog friendly place. Would definitely go back again.

We were going on a birding tour out of Bar Harbor and we had to be at the docks at 5:30 am. I knew there was breakfast like objects on the boat but I wasn't really looking forward to whatever those were. And, I really wanted some caffeine. But because I am silly fancy about my coffee I prefer a... More

The food was OK. Eggs were runny, bacon not crisp, potatoes flavorless, coffee weak, omelette lacking enough cheese. Nice staff and great view.

they have the best blueberry muffins I have ever had. I live in New York and took 4 muffins home with me. They were still good when I got Home and they are fresh.

Went to Grumpy's right after Cadillac Mountain sunrise, around 6:30 a.m. or so. The Blueberry muffins were coming out of the oven when we walked in the door. Slightly crusted top with delicious Maine blueberries inside. OMG were they good!!! Coffee and mocha were also excellent.

Small joint to grab a bite. More of a hole in the wall but great prices on lobster rolls and soda/water was only a buck. Not a lot of seating.

This is a very crowded place but our server was on the ball. The food was good and we enjoyed it. I don't think it is a stand-out place in regard to the food though, just good enough. There are plenty of places to eat in Bar Harbor so we figured we try as many as possible while there.
