“Breakfast without the wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This little place on Route 9 north of Cape Porpoise has had a few owners in the years I've visited, and this new incarnation seems just fine. The breakfast (blueberry pancakes and bacon) was good (my pancakes were cooked properly and the bacon was just right) and the servers were attentive. Just breakfast, you say? Yes, but if you've vacationed in the Kennebunks in the summer you know the kind of queue you'll be in at the Wayfarer, Maine Diner, All Day Breakfast, etc., but since nobody seems to know or care about this place, you can walk in, place your order, and be served in the time it would take to wait to be seated. It's been added to my list of places to revisit.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Went for lunch but the menu was mostly breakfast items. The only lunch items were a couple of pannini options (cheese, ham & cheese & jelly with nutella) and a lobster roll. We settled on some breakfast items: blueberry pancakes, eggs benedict, bread pudding french toast, scrambled eggs and bacon. The pancakes were too thick and dry, the eggs benedict was bland and the ham underneath was tough, the bread pudding french toast was the best but only shined because the rest was awful. The bacon was burnt on the edges and basically uncooked everywhere else. Before ordering we were told they were out of donuts, their blueberry muffins had no blueberries because they ran out and out of chocolate milk. The place was almost empty and I can see why. The food was awful. Skip the restaurant and get ice cream from next door.

“A FABULOUS FAMILY RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This fairly new restaurant is fabulous. The food was delicious, very reasonably priced and serves only local produce and meats. They have a liquor license serving not only beers and wines, but cocktails, as well. A must is their lobster fritters - a delicious appetizer. They have a delicious selection of desserts but a short walk across the parking lot will take you to Goose Rocks Dairy - the best ice cream around!

“Aside from delicious bread pudding French toast, breakfast was very average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

Bacon was black and hard, pancakes were too thick, and only unsalted butter available for toast. Even though the place was virtually empty, it took 35 minutes to get our food. Not returning any time soon.

“Fine if you want a hot dog!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Limited menu and sure to fail given the quality of nearby restayrants such as Lucas.
