Busy at times but worth it. Order at the back and find a table. Already been there twice this week for breakfast and lunch but going back!

Has everything from newspapers to a deli and fresh meat to bakery and everything in between. Perfectly located at main intersection in heart of town. Perfect for us boaters!

We love the fact that foodie owners have taken over a Camden staple and made it into something worthy of a destination visit. It's still THE spot for breakfast or lunch, but now the food is inventive and just wholly a cut above the typical diner or counter joint. Well worth a stop.

Went to BoyntonMcKay this morning and order Huevos Rancheros for breakfast. Explained to the woman about my serious seafood/fish allergy and was told it would be okay. I asked that she note it on the ticket and she did. Went to pour my coffee and overheard cook in the open kitchen joke about the allergy. I leaned over the kitchen... More

We came at the end of the lunch rush and waited only a few minutes for a table to open up. Our food (for a group of 8) was all delicious, prepared with very fresh, local ingredients. The roast beef on homemade bread was very good as well as the omelet of the day with fresh garden squash and small... More

Thus is a great breakfast spot on Main Street just across from the library. You have to stand in line to order but the food is delivered to your table. Excellent coffee, good baked goods and the Egg McKay sandwich is delicious. Almost always a short wait for a table but coffee can make the wait more tolerable.

We came here for brunch on our two-day trip to Camden, and it was the perfect way to start the day! Upon entering, you are approached by the hustle and bustle of the locals at their favorite spot. You claim a table by placing down your items, and head to the deli counter to order. The food is amazing, and... More

Great diner/restaurant to walk back in time and eat plenty of great tasting breakfasts including omelets, wraps, granola/yogurt, potatoes, and sandwiches. All made right there and sooooooo good. But get there on the early side as it gets very crowded (especially June - September) and folks love to eat and talk and catch up. Or take it to go and... More

We love to come in here for breakfast, we would come everyday if we could! The food is always top notch. Today I had the breakfast salad, it had the perfect amount of heat and they didn't skimp on the avocado. We always enjoy our food here!

When you go into a deli and order over $250.00 worth of prepared take-out food it would be nice have the server put her cell 'phone down long enough to do her job and bag your containers for you rather than hand you a bag (which I had to request in between lulls in her telephone call). Very expensive. The... More
