Satisfying lunch, great staff

This is one of the best places in Bar Harbor to get a quick lunch-- and this is coming from a local! They have very creative sandwiches made to order. The staff is great and will try to accommodate you as best they can. The sandwiches are always very satisfying. Stop in before your trip into Acadia... read more

Very disappointed with the food. Limited taste for both the bagel and croissant, service was good to costumers but staff was disrespectful to whom appeared to be someone training

We've been visiting Bar Harbor for 18 years and just visited here for the first time this visit. I believe they've been around for 9 years. We ended up getting our lunch there every day once we discovered it. Great fresh, real food at reasonable prices. They open early so you can pick up your lunch and take it in... More

Our second night in Bar Harbor looking for a lobster roll. This time we opted for a takeaway and it just got better. The roll was just full of fresh lobster chunks and a bit of lettuce, nothing we don't need. It was lovely, great service from the guy behind the counter who described the options to out of towners.

Good food, great customer service! Not only did the gentleman behind the counter give us details about the items we were interested in, he also gave us suggestions for dessert at the surrounding shops. Really knew his stuff and was great to chat with! Will visit again when we go to Bar Harbor next time!

This ranks almost to the top. I've been eating lobster rolls for 50 years and this one certainly was the most bang for your buck. Heaped with big chunks, no shreds, of meat,a little lettuce and mayo.or you can have it naked or with warmed butter. I'll be thinking of this one for a long time. Word has it from... More

nice small location,make a very nice sandwich and we ate at the park near the water.Nice bench to sit on and watch the water and some boats as well. passenger ship was in port and the shops were crowded but not bad as the town is fairly large. It is a nice way to have lunch,very relaxing.

Super convenient for a take-out lunch if you are going to the beach/park/picnic, etc. Buffalo chicken wrap was phenomenal. Very big and tasty. Also got a "baked potato" with cheese and broccoli. Not exactly what I expected... It was cubed potatoes in a bowl with the cheese and broccoli on top. Still very yummy and you get a large serving... More

There was a line at this place, but it was due to the cruise ship passengers stopping here. The line moved reasonably fast, and the service was friendly. My husband and I each had a warm, buttered lobster roll, and it was delicious. There is no place inside the deli to enjoy your food, but there are plenty of places... More
