But, if you want to hang around a bunch of east coasters who think wearing flip flops and dressing sloppy is really hip, then you hood to this... More

Charming out of the way breakfast nook. The service was extremely fast & attentive...the food fabulous. I had Kits Breakfast Burrito...the perfect amount of spicy heat. My husband raved over the Montechristo...french toast stuffed with eggs, sausage & cheese. Excellent breakfast choice!!

This is our sixth time here over the past decade since visiting Bar Harbor. Ambience is retro cool. Good food. Friendly service. Always a pleasure.
