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.

Loved this tiny, quaint restaurant in Perkins Cove! Had just finish our walk of Marginal Way and spotted this adorable place. Wound up sitting at the counter, as all tables were filled. Walking through the door was like stepping back into time 50+ years. Knotty pine wainscoting, lots of windows, fresh flowers on each table, gave new perspective on the... More

Definitely a great breakfast choice after your walk along Maginal Way! It's the perfect place to refuel with one if their fantastic omelette a. The service is attentive and you are served at a quick but not too quick pace. It's cozy and a great cafe atmosphere. Just what we were looking for!

We stopped in one morning to fuel up before our morning adventure on Marginal Way and in Perkins Cove. The owner ushered us to our table after a short wait. The food was yummy, the place was clean and the service was good and quick. I will definitely go back on my next trip to Ogunquit.
