Our family has been catching breakfast at Beth's Cafe once each August, for as long as it's been in operation, while visiting Bridgton. It's the only breakfast spot that we have returned to. The other restaurants that offer breakfast in town are fine restaurants but offer more traditional "short order" breakfast food. Beth's Cafe offers excellent locally roasted coffees, home made muffins and other pastries, made-to-order breakfast food, and desserts and lunch fare (We have never purchased the desserts or lunch fare as we are not in town after breakfast time.) The new location is more spacious, but it is suffering growing pains. As other reviewers have noted, flatlanders usually don't understand that there is no wait staff -- you have to order at the counter.
We feel that the service has slowed, unfortunately. But it's worth the wait (the food is amazing!), and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I think more staff may be necessary.
The atmosphere is lovely and relaxing.
