Sat on the porch which was lovely. Loved the food and the service was great. Only downside is a serious lack of parking...but that's Bath for you!

Once you are inside, all is perfection. Getting inside is a challenge. Parking is on street, for the most part -and sparse. Service is great-fast and friendly . The menu has variety. Food is very tasty and they accommodate special diets.

Conveniently located in Bath, this is a good spot to go to for breakfast or lunch. Three of us enjoyed a late breakfast here in mid-January. Awesome selection of eggs benedict, a good variety of pancakes, and a good variety of omelets. A varied menu offers lots to choose from, and the location is perfect. Situated in an older Bath...

If you need breakfast, brunch or lunch this is the place for you. The poached eggs are great and the sandwiches are novel and tasty. The service is the best and you will not go wrong if you asked to be seated at a table where Lori is your waitress. The place is very clean and there is more than... More

Mae's has come under new management over the years we have been coming here but the service and quality has remained pretty consistent. Very good cafe for breakfast, brunch or lunch. We have never been there in the evening for dinner. Sandwiches are very good as are salads. French toast and waffles are also excellent. Good pastries and cakes from... More

The food selection was excellent and the place is adorable. Good, quick (but not rushed) friendly service. We were glad we stumbled upon it.

We visited during Parent Weekend at Bowdoin and came on the early side on Sunday morning (9:30). We were seated immediately upstairs in a charming room that felt bright and open. The waitress was friendly and the service was prompt. I ordered an omelette with tomato, bacon and cheese - it was fine but not great - the fillings were... More

My wife and I eat here weekly. We are part of the "Meet Me At Mae's" crowd. Today I had the MAE West omelette and my wife had blueberry pancakes. My omelette was horrible. Normally I would have sent it back - still can't figure out why I didn't. The onions and peppers were raw and the ham was almost... More

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
