My wife and I stopped in here last weekend for a lunch before moving on to the rest of our day. The place was not really busy. I had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and my wife had a small Cobb salad. From the time we got in line until we got our food was over twenty minutes. The... More

The food, service, atmosphere was great and yummy. It's a must when in Belfast and not too pricy. The cafe is nice and spacious too!

We have eaten here several times. It is located near the Walgreen's on Main Street. The restaurant has been remodeled very attractively. I think the ordering system is confusing but someone will direct you to the right register. The egg salad, chicken salad sandwiches are delicious and huge. We also had several soups. The cookies are delicious and in big... More

Bell the Cat provides delicious food, friendly service, and a clean pleasant cafe environment. For good food, delicious drink options (not liquor), and home baked goods-visit Bell the Cat. I know I plan to return whenever I visit the Belfast area. The espresso milkshakes are unusual and excellent.

We stopped in on our way up to Acadia national Park. This is a great alternative to the boring old national fast food restaurants. We ordered the specials very surprised at how fresh and tasty it was. The wraps were big enough to split.highly recommended.

Drive right through Camden and avoid the crowds and traffic, and land instead just up the road 20 miles in Belfast. Charming little town with the prettiest harbor on the mid-coast (yes, people will argue with me on this, but trust me!) And once you get into Belfast, make your fist stop Bell The Cat. Situated in a strip mall... More

My husband and I ordered different sandwiches, neither as good as we make at home. May give it another shot, but my first impression was not special.

Some of the best coffee and espresso in town and that is saying something as Belfast has several good options. Hot or cold it is always smoothened full flavored. The lunch and Breakfast options are excellent - I am particularly fond of the DuckTrap smoked salmon with caper and red onion cream cheese on a toaster bagel. Wraps, sandwiches and... More

Being a Sunday morning and a holiday weekend, choices for a breakfast spot were sparse. I called ahead to see if they served breakfast and the young lady assured me they did. She didn't mention that breakfast is sandwiches only. I guess I should've asked since we were looking for a sit down sunny side up kind of breakfast. Food... More
