We stopped here for breakfast while visiting Acadia National Park. My wife wanted to try blueberry pancakes in Maine. In her opinion these were some of the best blueberry pancakes she'd ever had. I had the Harney, which was also great. Their homemade corned beef has was excellent. The service was good, and the place has a light and airy... More

Cute little café with a fun, trendy décor and excellent food. We stopped on a Sunday and had breakfast. Our omelets were excellent and the coffee was good, too. Fast and friendly service.

While visiting Bar Harbor, we stopped for a late breakfast at Café This Way (open for breakfast and dinner only). It is located in an alley across from the Village Green in a renovated house - signs direct you to the café. Even though it was very busy, the hostess was pleasant and seated us quickly. Our waiter was excellent... More

Nice restaurant with great ambiance and good food. The restaurant was a little expensive and I thought others were just as good and a little less expensive so I am going to give this four stars but definitely a top 15 restaurant in bar harbor.

This out-of-the-way restaurant was recommended to us for breakfast by our hostess at the Acadia Hotel where we were staying. It was just around the corner and we found it to be excellent in every way from the atmosphere to the servers to the difficult-to-make food choices. I chose the smoked trout fresh basil tomato red onion omelet which was... More

This restaurant has fun decor along with wonderful food. The coffee was excellent. Every meal ordered was top notch. All the egg dishes consumed were well cooked. Our waiter was most attentive and helpful. We ate breakfast here several times and were never disappointed.

Make a reservation and go, now! Fantastic fusion-type menu with some great twists on local favorites. Awesome and creative cocktails and parking. It's not to be missed.

Thanks, Kira, for the good service in this above-average semi-hidden café. Steak was a bit underdone, everything else was very good. Consensus for thumbs up on the blueberry pie! Nice decor, too.
