This is a one-in-a-million place. It's a great place to hang out in the heart of Bar Harbor. It's a great place to have good coffee and snacks in an interesting setting. They have games, friendly staff, and comfortable seating. There are lots of coffee places in Bar Harbor, but there isn't anything like this place!

We were looking for a place to have coffee and rest a bit after walking all through town, and we just happened upon this place. Wifi was free with a $5 purchase, so that was no problem since we were both getting drinks and a snack. Everything was kept tidy, including the restroom which is always nice. It has a... More

Good location and plenty of seating choices. You can use their computers for Internet access (for a fee). I bought two med lattes ~ $9. I was told only one of us could access the WiFi ($5 spend per access) for up to 1 hour. I tried connecting but the convoluted "check in & check out" process was such a... More

"Island of Misfit Furniture" was the first thing that came to mind...an eclectic mix of stuff in this surprisingly large coffee shop/internet cafe but it somehow works and makes you feel right at home. Baristas were friendly and coffee was very good. Definitely a favorite quick stop spot while shopping in town.

My favorite coffe place in town. Has a run down bohemian feel to it. Mismatched sofas and chairs to lounge in. Newspapers lying around. A cool internet cafe in the back. A liberal dog policy. They roll up the front "windows" when the weather is good, giving it an open-air vibe. Totally chill and laid back. The coffee was great,... More

We found this quite by accident and it is a gem! Very relaxed atmosphere, lots of comfy seats, papers etc and, of course, good coffee and the internet! I've seen the comments about having to pay for the internet but I didn't find that unusual - we just had to buy a coffee valued at $5 and got half an... More

was in this place with my kids on Aug 13 when a teenager came up to the male attendant (owner??) with some sort of complaint. The attendant started using the most incredible foul language, at the top of his lungs, that I could not believe it. I mean, half of the internet spots are taken by young children here. I... More

Good coffee tasty frozen strawberry lemonade but no Internet access unless you pay for it and jump through hoops with firewall etc. we were amused that public access has firewall . Cool place to hang out and fun chairs right out front.

Neat spot for coffee and pastries. Friendly people, a lot of self-serve items which initially is confusing. Great Place!
