We had to grab a quick lunch while on the run. Home made food, very friendly staff, and good location made this a top spot. I had a refreshing spiniest beet/goat cheese salad ... They also had heirloom tomatoes soup, wow!

Very good hand-made food, good service, right in the middle of downtown Camden. You might have to wait to get in as it is crowded at lunch but you can order something 'to go' and take it across the street to a nice little park with harbor view.

Wandered in for a latte but upon seeing the food everyone else was eating we decided to have breakfast. Bonus points for organic! I had Skillet #2, scrambled eggs over chorizo and potatoes, hubby had the buckwheat waffles. Ordered my eggs dry (don't like wet eggs) and they did them perfectly. The chorizo had a gentle but noticeable kick to... More

This little cafe has wonderfully prepared, fresh, organic food. The menu is particularly varied and refreshing in its creativity. The cafe provides multiple choices for those with allergies. It is my first choice for a cafe in Camden!

Four of us went for brunch. Silly me, there was a Lobster Benedict on the Special board and I ordered two with no questions. Two poached eggs per plate with some (not much) claw meat on an English muffin with hollandaise was over $40 for two people. No table service. The other meals were price appropriately and were OK. I... More

This is a unique breakfast/lunch experience. The menu offers an interesting array of meals. If you're looking for a change of pace with fresh food that isn't that far out there... try Boynton-McKay. You're sure to experience a hot, healthy meal!

We ate here twice for breakfast while in Camden and enjoyed the food. You order and pay at the counter and then they bring the food out to you. I got the skillet breakfast #2 that is topped with scrambled eggs with homemade rye bread. My wife got the breakfast salad that was topped with a poached egg. Not expensive,... More

Ever wonder what would happen if someone really just nailed breakfast? I mean the food, the vibe, the decor, the service, everything. Exactly that is what you get at Boynton McKay. This is that cool place where the locals go because they know. It has been the magnetic center, the must hit Jones for breakfast in Camden, Maine since forever... More
