“Inconsistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

I live locally and have been to this establishment many many times! My favorite time to visit there is for breakfast. The food can be inconsistent on it being great or not so great. My last visit was not so great so I have not been back in a while.

“Best biscuits...yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We enjoyed 15% off for hotel guests. The bacon and eggs was delicious and quick to arrive. The restaurant is very busy but so efficient.

Barb J- Thank you for taking the time to review our Café. We have a great working relationship with hotel next door to ensure that all of our guests receive the best possible service including a 15% discount for all of their guests. Thank you for noticing that we are a well oiled machine very familiar with handling a large number of guests while still turning out delicious food, and quick friendly service. Hope all is well back in Canada! We'll see you on your next visit!

“Large portions, fair prices, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Our party of two got seated quickly and the waitress came over right away. Our order arrived as quickly as it could. The pancakes were very good and my haddock sandwich was large and tasty. I would have preferred more seasoning on the fries, bit they were good. Bottom line:a solid choice for breakfast and lunch

Thanks for your review Dolomoto! I'm so glad you enjoyed not only your meal but your experience here at the Café. Your two meal choices are two of our most popular. Our Pancakes are well known in may of the surrounding states. It'll be nice to take the good word all the way down to GA!!! Our Haddock sandwich, weather grilled or fried, is a generous portion and delicious to boot. You just can't go wrong with that one. We appreciate you taking the time to review our Café and hope to see you the next time you are in town.

“A must go for breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Blueberry pancakes are incredible! The staff was so sweet. My wife and I had the pleasure of Diana's service this morning (6/8/14). I cannot wait to come back this way for more blueberry pancakes and true Maine friendliness and community. I found this cafe here on Trip Advisor and was so impressed with the professionalism of the manager responding to all of the reviews both negative and positive. Kudos to you...you truly know how to run a business and it was completely evident here on TA and at the restaurant itself. Thank you for a wonderful breakfast experience!

Nice to hear from you Tim!! I am so glad that both you and your wife enjoyed your breakfast. Our staff is known for some of the friendliest service in the State. Diana (and all the staff) work very hard to ensure that all of our guests receive top-notch service! We'll see you the next time you're in Maine and craving some of our, now, World Famous Blueberry Pancakes!!!

“Blueberry pancakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Any trip to Freeport means that my husband needs to get his fix of blueberry pancakes from the Freeport Cafe. It's nice to know, that after so many years, some things do stay the same, & the pancakes are still the best in Maine. We always ask for a few of the blueberry muffins to-go. They are quite delicious, too.

It's hard to go wrong with our Fluffy Blueberry pancakes. I'm glad we were able to get your husband his "fix"!! We do our absolute best to ensure consistency and quality. So when you get that craving for blueberry pancakes, even if it's been years since your last visit, it is the same plate of yumminess you had been dreaming about. So glad you stopped by, see you soon- Cheers!
