This little restaurant is a fun place to have breakfast with family and friends. The staff is exceptionally sweet, the food is good with lots of choices and daily specials and the prices are reasonable. I've enjoyed many of their offerings including the french toast, daily scrambled egg specials, omelettes and their delicious homemade breads. It's a great place to... More

Another visit to Cole Road Cafe and another good meal. Recently visited for breakfast on Saturday morning. It is a small place located off of Route 1 in Biddeford just beyond the Maine Turnpike spur driving from the south. There is a very positive vibe in this little restaurant, probably due to the owners and servers. They post specials on... More

Cole Road Cafe has crafted the art of breakfast and lunch to meet their market. It's tasty food, reasonably priced, with very good wait staff. Coffee cups are replenished in timely fashion and meals arrive promptly, cooked as you've requested. It's worth the upgrade to their home-made breads. It's a smaller place, so be prepared to wait if you choose... More

Cole Road is a fairly small restaurant located off of Route 1 in Biddeford mid-distance from 5 Points and the spur to route 111. Parking can be limited on busy Saturday mornings, but they move people pretty quickly so it is not a problem very often. There is rarely more than a few minutes wait even on the weekend- better...

This is a small restaurant, basic breakfast fare, generally consistent in what they deliver. Under a previous owner (I believe), their breakfast offerings seemed to be a bit more funky, e.g. Indian Pudding pancakes were an occasional special and they were fantastic. We've taken to going here lately when we wanted breakfast on a Sunday that was pretty speedy and... More
