Never had Blueberry Buckle with Marizipan Topping before; it's great. Wanted to try the blueberry scones, but we filled up on the BB. Not many places have really hot coffee at mid-day. Excellent bakery with very pleasant service. Parking is haphazard as the Town wouldn't...More

This review is based solely on the cake and cupcakes we ordered for my daughter's birthday. We had heard about Kate's Bakery and Deli from a family member and had her pick up and deliver the order to our house, some 3 hours away. I...More

I stopped here for a quick bite while doing errands. Nothing on the menu really appealed to me (there's really not much of a choice), so I had a chocolate cupcake and a cappuccino. The cupcake was a bit stale and the cappuccino was terrible....More

Nice location overlooking the river, both the turkey & bacon panini and grilled cheese panini were excellent. Wide variety of freshly baked goodies, friendly service. Would certainly visit again.

Stopped here on way back to Kittery from Portsmouth. Very friendly staff and nice place to sit looking out to the river. I'd say used mostly by locals but very friendly. They do several gluten free options including sandwiches and the coffee was great.

Located on Badger's Island across the Memorial Bridge from Portsmouth, the ambience is great and the views are awesome. We had snickerdoodle coffee and blueberry scones! Delish!

This is an attractive coffee house on Badger's Island, the gateway to Maine. Nice views of the river and the food was quite good. But the service was so terrible and the waiting staff so rude that I was appalled. I was only in the...More

Stopped here for breakfast and were the only ones in the place. The parking lot is very small and awkward - not sure what would happen if there were several people trying to park here! The décor is very cute and rustic. There was only...More
