“Bakery and Cafe with it all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Little Notch Cafe and Bakery is perfect spot for excellent baked goods (great quality, fresh and not all sugar) and comfortable spot to rest and recharge. Lots of seating indoors and out. Staff are friendly and helpful. WIFI is very fast. We spent a rainy morning in comfort with delicious coffee and treats.
Only draw back is no restroom - true of many local coffee shops but they will direct you to nearby facilities.
Highly recommended for a

“A little taste of Southwest Harbor in Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

We usually get baked goods from their store in Southwest Harbor, but we were here and decided on a picnic lunch. Their flank steak sandwich was really tasty with peppers and grilled onions which were served cold. Real good.

“Lots of bread....not a lot of dough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We traveled to this little backers from Bar Harbor, wife was in the mood for fresh made bread. The multi loaf bread is very good warmed with butter or sweet jam. I had their white chocolate cookies. Good but just a little on the dry side. We look forward to trying one of their other breads

“great sticky buns and blueberry tarts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

I went around town looking for a donut shop for the kids and was recommended this place for pastries (I couldn't find donuts anywhere). The sticky buns were awesome, not too sticky on the outside and very tasty on the inside. Also tried the blueberry tart which I really enjoyed. I went into another bakery down the street from this place and I thought the selection was much bigger at this place. So stop in an
