Delicious Breakfast

They had all the standard breakfast fare with some fun additions. I had eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, but it was also available with a smoked fish that I was interested in trying if we had time to return. My husband had an omelette that he enjoyed. Everything was tasty, ready quickly, and... read more

We had the amazing opportunity to have both breakfast and dinner here! Dinner was absolutely Delish! They were very knowledgeable about gluten and understanding... Definitely made me feel comfortable and confident! For dinner we shared the ribs special and it was terrific! The table enjoyed the spring rolls and my entree was one of the best fish dishes of my...

We have been in Bar Harbor for almost a week and tried breakfast here after seeing the sunrise on Cadilac, it was great! My girlfriend and I ended up splitting a breakfast sandwich with eggs, cheese, sausage..very good homemade food. The atmosphere was open and airy, eclectic as somebody else called it, but nice and relaxed for breakfast and not... More

We were really looking forward to eating there based on reviews. However, the salad special they served me was a soggy drenched mess. When I pointed it out to the waitress, even she said it looked inedible. They had clearly on purpose served me hours old left over salad. I say on purpose, b/c I saw other customers served later...

What can be said about this place that hasn't been said already! We were in Bar Harbor for a week and we ate here for three breakfasts. My companion and I had berry pancakes ...red, white and blue on July 4th...blueberry, strawberry and whipped cream on top for the white part. We also enjoyed Monte Cristo on two visits...yummy French... More

With so many 'similar' restaurant offerings in Bar Harbor (Lobster and clam chowder) it is refreshing to come across a charming restaurant offering a welcomed variety. Vegan and vegetarian dishes offered alongside meats and fish dishes. The desserts were fun and a decadent finish to a fine meal. Well worth seeking out.

The food was excellent and the atmosphere is quaint, unique, and romantic. Perfect for dinner, and we hear their breakfast is amazing, too! I had the lobster roll and my husband had the haddock and mussels- both wonderful meals. Very hearty and fresh!

cute restaurant tucked away from main street. we were seated pretty quickly and service was good. food was just OK. I had a monte christo and hubby had the breakfast burrito. Both of our home fries were under cooked. Iced coffee was good though! overall it was okay but neither of us were blown away.

Best place to eat in Bar Harbor. I consider myself to be a bit of a foodie and Cafe This Way did not dissapoint. I had a salmon special (I know salmon - can be boring) with a fennel sauce. One of the most Memorable plates of food I had in a long time. We also had the lobster lettuce... More
