Not somewhere we'd normally have stopped but after reading reviews... sandwiches were so fresh, and their home-baked goodies so delicious, everything well priced, we ordered take-out lunch from this deli every day we were in Machias! Be aware that breakfast may end earlier than the...stated time if it's not busy.More

Due to Covid seating is limited . Seating near register/counter is blocked off so no one stands close by. Purchased a cheesesteak ,chicken cheese steak both plain and an order of fries.. Food was hot and delicious. Best I have had since in the Northeast.

They serve a very good breakfast at a great price. Drinks are self-serve and very inexpensive. Quirky location - behind a gas station.

We ordered 3 different sandwiches and sides for lunch while on a trip. The food was good. The staff was pleasant. The only reason this did not get 5 stares was that the tables all needed a good wiping down - the food however was...very good.More

It looks like a glorified gas station, but the food is excellent. The fried fish is as big as the plate! I always stop there on the way out of town to get gas and lunch. It's also a convenience store, so snacks for the...road are available. it's a little of this and that, and surprisingly good food.More

Stopped in or gas, noticed a a place in the back that looked pretty busy so we decided to order their fish and chips. It was an excellent meal, fish was outstanding. I know our next time travelling we will stop in for a meal.

Stayed at the motel next door and walked over to Tom’s several mornings to get something to start the day. Didn’t want to fuss with a big sit down breakfast so we tried their breakfast sandwiches (go for the croissant one rather than the biscuit,...which gets soggy). Decent selection of yogurts and the homemade donuts with just granulated sugar are very good. Not fancy but met our needs.More

Nice, well-stocked convenience store. The deli in the back has seating. Clean and friendly. What more could you want from a stop n' go type place?

Very clean dining area, restrooms also. Super friendly staff. Had a crab roll and HOMEMADE potato salad. Not out of a can. My wife had a burger loaded up and she couldn't finish it. Large menu from salads to pizza to seafood. Can't go wrong.

Gas station food at it's finest!! Grease bombed food. I ordered chicken tenders and fries for children and fish and chips for myself. We needless to say food was greasey nasty mess. I could have clogged arrtery just eating fish and chips. Mentioned to cashier...she tells me I can't do anything about it the OWNER isn't here. I was so overwhelmed I paid for grease mess we left threw in trash and walked out. McDonald's would have been better. Not a 5 🌟 gas station.More

This is a small dinner style restaurant in the back of a local gas station convenience station. But in my opinion is the best sit down restaurant in the town of Machias. Food is always served hot and with little wait. Portion size of meals...is always good. Plenty on the plate to satisfy even the most hungry of patron. They serve local seafood and other fried foods that you would expect from a Maine dinner. They also serve great pizza. Worth trying out if passing thru town or if you live local.More

If you are on US Rte-1 just about to enter Machias from the south, you might consider buying gas here. I did and I also made the grave mistake of ordering food there as well. I will NEVER forget that day. When I bit into...my "Mystery Fritter", it tasted like gasoline. When I very quietly complained to the attendant, she said that there are a a couple of plumbers and electricians that eat there ever day (as if that somehow mattered) and they don't complain about the gasoline taste. I could NOT believe my ears! Take my advise, if you just continue on another mile, you'll not only find consistently cheaper fuel and several restaurants where the food does not taste like gasoline. Gas and food no not mix. And, people need to wash their hands and wear gloves when handling food or stop selling it.More

This is a gas station cafe but the food is good. It's a short order grill with a broad menu. I especially like their burgers and they prepare them the way you ask. Staff is very friendly. Pricing is most reasonable. If you are confused...when you enter the front door, walk all the way to the back. The cafe is hidden back there and some nice photography on the walls as well.More
