We stopped at Maura"s for lunch just as we got to town. It is a tiny space on a side street in Homer. There are maybe 6 tables so it is probably more of a take-out place but we were able to get a small table for the two of us. We ordered the Cubano sandwich and the cobb salad.... More

Amazing!! The tomato bisque is awesome. We love everything. The lox and bagel are one of the best around. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Maura's is a must when in Homer!

Don’t get me wrong, we love the seafood offerings of Alaska, but sometimes you just want something “different.” Maura’s offers that and more. This is the first restaurant that I’ve seen brie and chevre offered since we left home! I had the chicken cobb salad which was fantastic: artichokes, thick bacon, eggs, baby lettuces, and tender, juicy chicken. My husband... More

Fun cozy French atmosphere and excellent food. We had the Strata (which was flaky, rich and perfectly seasoned) the Breakfast sandwich with sausage, the Crepes and the Warm Brie. Best breakfast we've had in Homer. Don't miss it. It's a small seating area so be prepared to wait a little - but so worth it!

The place is very small, with very limited seating. The food was very good, I had a very nice Lox and bagel open sandwich with a large serving of Lox, at a very reasonable price, My wife had a very nice breakfast sandwich. Service is painfully slow, you order at the counter, and it took over an hour for the... More

Maura's has been a Homer staple for years and years and years (even back when it was called Panarelli's). Her sandwiches are simple yet amazing; the tomato bisque is perfection; and anything with her homemade pesto should definitely be on your plate. I've never had a meal here I didn't like.

This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. We were staying the in B and B upstairs, so this was very convenient for us. The food is amazing! Painstakingly prepared and delicious! We had breakfast there twice and I would go back again tomorrow, if I could. I had the bagel and lox and it was too much for me... More

Wow, Maura's was a total treat. This restaurant is my favorite place to brunch, The menu is full of wonderful choices. Salmon lox is always my go-to. The hosts made wonderful recommendations for choices of cheeses to take home as well. The old town location is my favorite part of Homer as well. It is very close to the beach.... More

Tiny cafe with outside space and two small dining rooms. Ingredients were local and fresh and combined in a very tasty and beautifully served manner. We ate a full breakfast and a lunch there. Would go back in a hearbeat!
