Excellent mimosas! Breakfast isn't complete with out one (or 3). Personally always stick with my favorite the Anne omelette or the Harney, but everything on the menu will not disappoint.

Nice atmosphere, excellent wait staff and good food. Very varied menu, we had eight different orders and they were all excellent and served at the same time. Highly recommend for dinner in Bar Harbor!

The atmosphere is funky and cool. The service is topnotch. The breakfast is truly fantastic. Best way to fortify for a day of exploring the island.

We have been to Bar Harbor for the end of summer for three years now. This is absolutely the only place we go for breakfast. We love to be with the first customers of the day as we are always eager to get hiking. The staff is very experienced and smooth. The vibe is so artistic and creative with gorgeous... More

After having breakfast at some average places in the first few days here we finally find this one, which is so perfect! (And half a price than hotels of course). The fruits are sweet and rich. We had a unique burrito that was surprisingly good. The french toast as well. And the atmosphere, colorful and surround you with books, Shakespeare... More

I recently stayed at the Acadia Hotel in Bar Harbor, which did not serve Breakfast. The Café This Way was just two buildings away, so I decided to try it out for Breakfast on my recent stay in Bar Harbor.

I know that this place has an odd address and is off the main road. Sometimes there is a wait. But it is always worth it! There are several options no matter your diet needs. Everything is so fresh and creative that your mouth waters just looking through the menu. One of the best places in Bar Harbor for breakfast!!

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel keeper. We like the breakfast so much the first day we went back the second day. Good service and good food.
