My girlfriend and I went in there one morning to get breakfast. This was back near the 4th of July so I forgot what we ordered but it was pretty good. We sat at the bar area inside the restaurant where there were two servers right in front of us, and it seemed like we were sitting in their own... More

Grab a cup get your coffee or tea find a table. Make sure you check out the specials. However, I tend to stick to my favorite a spanish omelet. Always good why change.The coffee cake is always a good start while you wait. Great wait staff

Quirky, friendly, great staff and wonderful breakfasts. Get your own coffee in a variety of old mugs and choose from a very creative breakfast menu

We tried this place based on recommendation. It's a limited menu but the food was very good. The blueberry cake was divine. The blueberry pancake was full of blueberries. Our waitress may have been new but seemed uninformed and informative as well as slow. But overall I would try this place again. It's a nice older home setting and was... More

Expect it to be busy. Expect half of the clientele to know each other. We went there for Sunday brunch. Great coffee, atmosphere, and food. Ex

We've been going to Mama D's for the last few years that we've visited Boothbay. We've had both breakfast and lunch there and were never disappointed. This last visit (for lunch) we had a "make your own sandwich" which included roast beef cheese of your choice, lettuce, tomato, and horseradish mayo - YUM! Also - the soup of the day... More

We visited this cafe on a Saturday morning during the peak of breakfast hours. No knowing the routine, we walked in, sat down and waited for someone to bring menu's. They did and when they asked what they could get for us, we said, coffee to begin with. They quickly invited us to the "coffee bar" where you have a... More

We went because we heard it was very popular and it's in a great location. However, the hostess and waitress were not friendly and the food was not very good. I would not recommend going.
