We tried this place on our last day for breakfast and wish we went here sooner! It's a local, homey breakfast/lunch place. NOTE* there is not an A/C unit, fans only. They have your typical food for breakfast but what's awesome is they have options for every belly. You can order a 1 egg or 2 egg omelette. You can... More

It is great. I went out lastnight and woke up feeling very awful. B&L's saves my life every time. Order the french toast using the homemade cinnamon bread, you will never be dissatisfied.

Catering to locals, this little gem of a diner is tucked away on Seal Cove Road in a little strip center, barely recognizable as a restaurant. The service is friendly and fast. The fare may be basic, but it sure hits the spot. Prices are very reasonable: 2 eggs any style, 2 sausage patties, homefries, toast for $8.

Local great people with fine breakfast and lunch choices without pretentious prices. Try great blueberry pancakes or corned beef hash.

Staff was very friendly and welcoming. This is a little diner that is obviously popular with the natives, and for good reason!! I had a turkey club sandwich ... The best I have ever eaten. Real turkey, not deli. Cole slaw had a little too much mayo but was quite good nonetheless. My hubby had the one time salad bar... More

A great place to gather. Good food, reasonably priced, with an attentive waitstaff. Not a typical Bar Harbor area tourist trap and a favorite among locals

Small mom and pop cafe. Felt the prices were a little high considering the ambiance or lack there of. Food was ok and they do accept credit cards.

You should come hungry to this cafe in Southwest Harbor. Had the steak & eggs w/ hash browns. Nothing special really but it was really quite good.
