Nice little family run place, just a few tables and a counter so you may need to wait if they're busy. Good service, polite staff, try the blueberry stuffed french toast or eggs benedict. Both are excellent!

I chose Cove Café for my final brunch (and meal) for my first trip to Ogunquit, and it was a perfect way to end the trip. The small dining area has a modern-country flair and feels very homey. Staff were efficient and friendly. The menu options include lots of traditional American breakfast dishes, and everything that arrived at the table... More

This restaurant was almost across the street from the touristy one and far surpasses it. Very cozy atmosphere, extremely clean, great service and great food. Our second time there.

We stumbled upon this little restaurant by accident when we couldn't find parking space in Perkins Cove and had to walk in from a remote parking lot. We passed by Cove Cafe and read the menu and it sounded great so we decided this was where we would have breakfast the next morning. We had the Belgian waffles with mascarpone... More

Small, Family run place. Read their story in the photo. Extremely popular breakfast place. Long waits at peak hours and weekends. Loved the Maine Blueberry Pancakes. Others had omelettes and salmon breakfast served to perfection. It's towards the end of Beach Street.

We always eat breakfast here when we visit Ogunquit. The food is consistently amazing and the staff are always friendly and greet you with a smile. The omelets are to die for! We will be back!

Small Local Breakfast spot in Perkins Cove. My family and I ate breakfast there the first day, it was excellent. We enjoyed it so much we came back again. The omelets are amazing, Great coffee. Small place, no parking so you must park at one of the lots

This place was recommended to us by the Resort at which we stayed. The atmosphere was quite nice - sort of a local flair. And the food was incredibly good! I would recommend this highly!

This great breakfast room offers traditional and unusual. Whether you prefer Corned Beef Hash & Eggs or Lobster Frittata or Crab Cake Benedict, one can find delicious and ample or simple 'On the Side', but all goes beautifully with bottomless hot coffee.Prices are reasonable but plan on paying $10-15 parking fees nearby unless you want to from town, a lovely...

We enjoyed our breakfast at the Cove Cafe after working up an appetite walking the Marginal Way. Breakfast was just the perfect size, freshly prepared and yummy. Although we were able to get seats immediately, the cafe is not very large so you may need to wait to sit if you go during the busy season.

Thank Nancy F
