Our group of eight were warmly welcomed and taken care of like we were family. Zan expertly made sure we had everything we needed and then some- including calling their bakery a few doors down to save me some cinnamon buns. The hostess was personable...and charming. She talked to us almost the whole time we were waiting for a table. Clearly these are people who love what they do, and it shows. Wonderful people and delicious food. When we are back in Maine next year, we will be stopping in. You guys are the best!More

Interesting breakfast offerings and cheerful staff. If you're not up for the lobster omelet ($40) try the excellent French toast. Prices are high but fair for what you get.

I'm not going to say much more than what's already been said. This was a great place from the service to the food. I had the cinnamon roll french toast and my husband had the corn beef hash with an egg and toast. It was...all good and we would go back any time.More

This is our favorite local breakfast spot. The lobster bennies are amazing! I've never had a bad meal here, and the service is outstanding. There's usually a line for breakfast, though, because they're so darn good! We usually wait til tourist season is over before...heading back when it's just the local crowd.More

Love everything about this place. Casual atmosphere, good prices, fantastic food. Large variety of items on the menu and everything made in house. My wife and I loved our meal and are looking forward to eating here again next time we are in Rockland. We...also had a blueberry vanilla cupcake which was amazing.More

We were in Rockland for a one week family reunion, and enjoyed breakfast here twice. Both days, both the food and service were exceptional!

Had breakfast at the Home Kitchen Cafe. Service and food were very good. Large portions, fresh and hot. Service was prompt. Why the three stars? Felt ripped off when I got the bill and my small (maybe 5 oz) glass of OJ was $3.50. It's...a shame to leave a place after having a very good meal feeling you have been taken advantage of. In my opinion, $50 (with tip) for two people at a local place for breakfast is not worth it, no matter how good it was.More

The food and service is amazing. I would strongly recommend stopping in for breakfast or lunch. It is definitely worth it. I cannot say enough about the service and staff. We will definitely be back the next time out to Maine.

Possibly the best breakfast I’ve had. My husband and I both got the huevos rancheros and couldn’t have been happier. Tastes were amazing…..no salt, pepper, sauce needed. As served it provided that nice slow heat. The homemade tortillas have great texture and flavor. My husband...added the chorizo which was a nice add, but even without, it was a perfectly satiating meal. And if you don’t like a bit of spice, the menu is pretty extensive. We had a short wait on a Monday morning, service was friendly and attentive, and the food came out quickly. The (not so long) drive from Union was well worth it. We’ll be back.More

Fantastic service with an extensive menu. We split a garden omelette, two blueberry pancakes, and a side of bacon. All delicious. Meghan was our server we ate at the counter. There’s a good looking patio with sail-like sun protection covering. Parking lot is small but...we found a spot on the street. There’s a two hour limit.More

Excellent food! I visited 3 times while my boyfriend was at a nearby conference. He enjoyed it on the last day in the area. Very extensive menu. The fish tacos may have been the best I have ever had! Nice fresh homemade biscuits as part...of my breakfast sandwich too! Friendly staff! Get there before opening on the weekend!More
