I positively recommend Good Thyme Cafè to everyone visiting or passing by OOB (anche ai turisti italiani, aussi bien qu'aux français, generally more demanding than others 😉). The interior is casually decorated yet quite charming, the general vibe is very welcoming and the whole staff is extremely friendly, courteous and efficient. I ordered a set of large pancakes and they were some of the best I had had in the US. I could see that other main courses were carefully prepared and strongly appreciated. On top of everything, it is also reasonably priced, thus quite outstanding in an area that, frankly, is grossly overpriced. Definitely stop by.

My wife and I just returned from a 3 day/2 night stay in OOB. We went to the Good Thyme Cafe our second morning there. Given the time of the year (first week after Lab Day), a lot of stuff in OOB is closed for the season. The day before, we went to JJ's in the center of town and it was also good but there was a wider variety of menu items at Good Thyme. I had the lobster scramble which was made with scrambled eggs, lobster, cheddar cheese, and chives - it was fantastic! Add to that a grilled English muffin and good quality home fries and I was a happy camper. My wife had the cinnamon chip pancakes and they were also great. Excellent service that kept the coffee refills coming. About the only negative I can say is that we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table and there were open tables inside when we were seated. I suspect they were a little short staffed due to COVID or the time in the season. But the food and service was worth waiting for. We will definitely go to the Good Thyme Cafe on our next trip to OOB!

We did not have a good time here. Our waitress was super sweet and the food was tasty, but we did not get everything we ordered. In fact we asked 3 seperate employees for our sides. When our breakfasts were 3/4 done we finally received the rest of our food...nothing like ice cold eggs to go with that delicious pastrami hash Jo ordered and which arrived at our table 15 minutes after the rest of our breakfast. But of course none of the employees I very politely asked for a Coffee refill had brought that yet. The "owner" did however arrive at our table faster than the glass of water I asked for...not to try and set things right, but to literally berate us for asking for what we ordered. Being service industry veterans we understand mistakes get made. We did not berate anyone we weren't rude or pushy. The owner immediately brought us our check, but our forgotten sides weren't expedited or ordered on the fly but merely put in the que. Our waitress got a great tip. Here's tip for the owner...we own property here and we would have come back, often,If you hadn't been so rude. We didn't want anything for free but an apology would have been nice, and appropriate. Just because the egg yolk is soft doesn't mean it's cooked right. Over easy is a very different egg from over medium. The owner said " the egg is runny, right there. RIGHT WHERE? If you have to search for the runny yolk it's not over easy!

Amazing food at this wonderful restaurant! Mike made the BEST omelette I ever had in my life, and my partner felt the same way about hers. Large portions of tasty food, how can you go wrong! And great friendly service from Apryl! We sat down and we were drinking coffee less than a minute after we got there. She checked in regularly to make sure everything was all right. Couldn't ask for a better experience at this wonderful restaurant!

I had a late, solo breakfast by myself this past Sunday morning at Good Thyme Cafe. I could tell immediately when I walked in that this establishment had an atmosphere of joy. I was greeted with a big smile from the host. Since I was by myself I told him I did not mind sitting at the bar if they needed me to, but a table would be preferable. He immediately sat me at a table. I had the pleasure of being served by the owner. She did not announce herself as such, but I had to ask since she was so nice. I sensed her commitment to the mission! The atmosphere at Good Thyme Cafe is quaint and Holly (the owner) and I discussed the history of the building. It is either the oldest or one of the oldest buildings in OOB as I remember her saying. I received my food promptly and it was very good. Just the type of brunch food I was craving. I ordered the crab benedict with real crab meat. Being the pancake aficionado that I am I had to try a blueberry pancake on the side. It was huge and when it arrived I thought to myself that there would be no way I could finish it.... well, I think you know what happened... I wish I lived closer to this restaurant as I would be a regular patron. With so much negativity in the world it was refreshing to be served good food with a side positivity.

Once again low staffing causing long wait times. Food average but could have been better. Bacon was burned and eggs runny If you are a party of 4 they add a tip of 20% onto your bill and you must pay it. They decide the tip not you. Staff knows this and is rude

We frequently visit our student at a nearby college and have visited a number of breakfast restaurants, many of which are fantastic. Good Thyme is excellent and joins my list as a "top 5" in the area! I ordered Texas Toast French Toast, my wife had the raisin French Toast, and our 22 year old had the cinnamon chip pancakes. There were 6 other breakfast specials, other egg options, and a ton of other items but alas, one has to choose! The service was quick and super friendly, very down home, and the food was perfect. We had about a 15 minute wait which was totally comfortable on the benches outside. We ordered, ate, chatted and laughed without any pressure at all, and were out within an hour! We will absolutely come back!

Absolutely wonderful! Worth the 45 minute wait. Cute place with lots of food options. Reasonable prices and the server was amazing ...kept our coffee filled and had a sense of humor.

I hadn't been here for about four years (I usually go into Portland for meals), but I'll have to come here more often because it really is very good. I had one of their specials, the crab and goat cheese Benedict, and it was delicious. The spicy tater tots that came with it were also good. Nice atmosphere (I like all the ship models on the ceiling's beams), friendly service, reasonable prices, and the menu has a lot to choose from, not even counting the dozen or so breakfast specials. Good coffee, too.

Food was ok, nothing to rave about. Ham and cheese omelette was good, but have had better. Long wait times for seating. There are only 12 tables for seating. All there bacon cooked ahead of time and was burned. Bacon is warmed up in microwave

Had a bit of a wait because we hit the "busy period" but that was ok. Wait staff VERY friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious and the portions were large. Highly recommend!!! Would definitely go back if I was in the area.

My husband and I were staying at a nearby campground and thought we’d give this place a try. It felt like local-yokel kind of place. Everyone seemed to know each other. I thought that was a good sign. It was. We both had the eggs Benedict which were wonderful as well as the home fries. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff made this place a winner.

This was one of the best breakfasts I have had at OOB. The waitress was so nice. The food was amazing. I had the croissant French toast with strawberry rhubarb sauce and whipped cream. It was one of the specials and it was fabulous. My husband’s omelette was very good. They deserve their rating of 5 stars.
