Great Breakfast Find!

We had nowhere to go during a snowstorm for breakfast, so we just got in the car and went to the first place we could find. We had no idea it would be such a gem! The homemade corned beef hash was to die for!

2 cats is a great local breakfast spot. Absolutely love the biscuits with homemade butter. Truly a little gem and worth the visit for a delicious breakfast to fuel your day in Acadia national park!

Awesome food (vegan friendly!) and super friendly people. Lots of options for any kind of tastebuds. I enjoyed it so much I bought a mug and I never do that :)

We came here when we found out the cafe we had planned to eat at was closed. A local, recommended this spot and we loved it so much we ate there both mornings we were in town. Everything was fresh, homemade, and perfectly prepared. I had the Eggs Benedict, which were cooked to perfection. The omelets were all wonderful and... More

A nice house-turned-into-restaurant, full of color, excellent breakfast, including eggs benedict with lobster, french toast and real blueberry pancaces. And it opens at 7am, even on Sundays! The only thing they can improve is the quality of the coffee which is not more than "mainstream america".

we came here for the special lobster breakfasts. it's good that we came and our verdict is once is enough, thank you. at least to us, lobsters and eggs are not good combinations. in fact, I think it's a waste of lobster meat. save them for lobster rolls or salad. plus, they are pretty expensive. doesn't worth the money at...

Six of my friends and I spent the weekend in Bar Harbor and stopped here on our last morning. Coincidentally, it our waiter, Tobias' last day of the season. He exhibited top-notch customer service. We showed up asking about a party of 7. It was busy, but they were able to seat us right away, even though our whole party... More

Arrived at 7am (along with other guests) after verifying their hours to an unlocked door, with no staff to be found. Waited for several minutes as other guests arrived, still no staff. If you decide to try, may want to call to verify they are actually open for business.
