Lobster Benedict

I like this place. It has great food and outdoor seating! I ordered the lobster Benedict. Hands down the freshest lobster I had while in Bar Harbor. I will say I wasn't a huge fan of the homemade biscuit it came on. I wish it was on an English muffin instead. It tasted like pie crust to me, but... read more

I had an omelet and my husband and daughter each had two eggs and hash browns. The hash browns were really delicious. The omelet was really good as well. Each breakfast came with a biscuit and strawberry butter. With tea and coffee, the bill came to $35. Well worth the money. This place packs in the breakfast crowd. I liked... More

Our daughter and son-in-law treated us to a fabulous breakfast at 2 Cats in August. The food is wonderful, whether you select a fancy Eggs Benedict or go for a more traditional breakfast of eggs, home fries, and a great biscuit. We had a 16 month old with us, and she had a thoroughly wonderful time, too! Great service, great... More

We really enjoyed our visit. The food was well prepared and very good. The waitress and hostess were very friendly and considerate. Service was well timed and it was the one restaurant that we visited twice.

So I read so many positive things about 2 Cats for breakfast and boy was it good. I got there a little before 7 figuring it would be crowded and there was already a line. As soon as it opened, line was seated quickly and order taken right away. I had pancakes and bacon. Pancakes were awesome and the place... More

We stopped in for a breakfast to go before a full day of trail riding in Acadia. This is a great breakfast place. Fresh ingredients, deliciously prepared. Great way to start the day.

We ate here in August while staying in Bar Harbor. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The blueberry pancakes were the best I have ever had. Make sure to also try the home made biscuits with jam. Arrive early as there can be a wait later in the morning. We will definitely eat here again on... More

This place was very good for breakfast and we really enjoyed our 'lobster' feast of benedict and omelet! We also had a nice cappuccino with our breakfast. And just had to try the hot sausage as well. More breakfast than we typically eat, but we were on vacay so why not! Be sure to get there early as they fill... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. Unless you make a reservation...or you have lots of vacation time to spare...this is not the place you want to go. We waited 50 minutes for a table for four people. We waited another 40 minutes for our food. And it was just omelettes!. Yes the biscuit with the strawberry butter... More

I fondly remembered breakfast here from the year before and ordered the summer scramble again with great expectations. The disappointment was in the server, who was harried and overlooked a good deal, and something missing in the breakfasts themselves. We never got all the waters we requested and he mistakenly refilled the soft drink at the next table with the... More
