If you are staying in the downtown area of Bar Harbor, Café This Way (great name BTW) is an easy walk. We enjoyed it so much the first morning, that we decided to visit again a second day. Service was friendly and quick. Just what you want for breakfast.

This restaurant came recommended by to us by the motel we stayed at. We had a wonderful dinner. We went back for breakfast and we were just as pleased.

I have been to Bar Harbor a few times and we always go to Cafe this Way! Their food is fresh and delicious and the staff is very friendly! Get there early for breakfast because there tends to be a wait.

My husband and I went here and enjoyed an ah-mazing breakfast. When we asked locals where they enjoyed eating, this place was consistently mentioned. (It's always best to ask the locals where to eat!) When we arrived, the place was quite busy, which was a good sign. We didn't have to wait too long, plus there is a cute little... More

We love to eat breakfast here. Sometimes you may have to wait to be sat, but the food comes quickly. They have great food and even has a bar!

What a fun little place. It seemed like it was in a converted garage but beautifully decorated. There were quirky table tops to identify each table, books on a bookshelf, bold colors and interesting art work. The food was superb. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is my daughter's favorite breakfast restaurant. They have a unique offering of menu items. Also, good location....but it can be crowded.
