Every time I’m in Bath, Maine, I must stop by Mae’s Cafe and Bakery. They have these huge gingersnap cookies, about 4-inches in diameter that are simply the best I have ever had. They are $2 a cookie. I live south about 100 miles, so I can’t just drop in a get a cookie when I want one, so I... More

Our group of four found this to be a great location and atmosphere, pleasant and prompt service, but rather mediocre food. The salad was large but non-descript, the pot pies were small servings, not very tasty and overall disappointing. No coffee refills were offered and they would have been accepted. Only one restroom and it was the only one open... More

We arrived cold and hungry not long before the restaurant was set to close. Our group of six was given a quiet room off to the side where we could eat and visit easily. The food was very good and warmed us up.

Wanted somewhere for a good priced breakfast and had spotted Maes the day before. Not disappointed, good cooking at realistic prices, with the added bonus that it is also a bakery serving really fine cakes and cookies.

We were looking for a place to have breakfast before going to the Maine Maritime Museum. This place fit the bill. The food was terrific. One of us had the blueberry pancakes and the other had the french toast. Both were wonderful! The atmosphere was bright and pleasant. They also had a counter for to-go treats. We would go back...

Four of us stopped by around 1pm for lunch. We were seated in a quaint window seat and realized their breakfast items are available for lunch. Three of us ordered egg dishes and I got a Billy sandwich which was a delicious blend of fresh cranberry relish, smoked turkey and melted cheese. Our server was attentive and offered help explaining... More

We are breakfast people and you know you are in the right place when they have real maple syrup and very sophisticated dishes at great prices. Ate outside and the service was lovely as was the setting despite nearby roads. We had five dishes all fresh and delicious and filling. The egg dishes stood out but consistently excellent. Great pastry... More
