“Local place with good basic food and great bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Living in Bass Harbor, Brandon and Lauras is our breakfast place. The raisin toast is superb.
The service is good, the food is good and the fellow diners always interesting. There is no view and the decor is home kitchen 1955 but that is good- diners eat and leave, otherwise we would all be waiting in line! Eat and move along please.

“l'll gladly add to the positive feedback!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Brandon and Laura's is a great little diner/Restaurant located on Seal Cove Road, in Southwest Harbor. It is a place visited by locals. The reasons are obvious - the service is friendly and efficient, and the food is plentiful and well-made. The prices are fair. The place always has good specials posted for breakfast and lunch. The fried fresh clams are great, as are all of the meals. They even make homemade breads like cinnamon, and anadama, The place opens early in the a.m. and closes at 2 p.m. When visiting Mount Desert Island, I would go back to Brandon and Laura's in a heartbeat.

“I LOVE THIS PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

IF you want to get a real feel for the island, go to breakfast at Laura and Brandon's for breakfast. The locals all come in and sit at their favorite tables. Every morning there is a group of local men working out the problems of the world over a cup of coffee and a plate of bacon, eggs and home made bread. Laura bakes several kinds of bread and makes the best EVER french toast with the cinnamon bread. She'll let you buy a loaf to take if she has enough. This place provides great "home cooked" meals for breakfast and lunch. It's not uncomfortable to go solo either. It's a great place to read the paper and get a taste of local color as well as a good meal.
