The food and service were stellar (as my son said) but the pricing was "a little" steep. We had the Lobster Omelet ($20), Eggs Benedict, and the Pancakes . . . . The bill was north of $65 . . . . I left $80 (because I am a nice guy) but that doesn't mean I was happy. The server... More

Visited Bar Harbor for our 10th wedding anniversary. Our hotel recommended 2 Cats for breakfast. The lobster benedict was excellent! My wife loved the blueberry pancakes. Very nice employees. Had to buy a bottle of 2 Cats hot sauce when we left. Highly recommended.

Yes tis is the best in breakfast for Bar Harbor-even better than Cafe This Way (sorry!). The prices are on track for the portions. The coffee, freshly squeezed juice and muffins are superb. You will never get a bad meal here. We go here as often as possible during their open season which can vary depending on when the reopen... More

Lobster omelette and home fries were incredible. Little custom "2 Cats" hot sauce was perfect for the food (bought 2 bottles to take home). Food kept me full for the 12 hour drive back to Toronto. Get there early; restaurant specializes in breakfast and fills up quickly.

Seated around 9:30. Didn't receive entrée for nearly 40 minutes. Nice presentation and waitress was pleasant enough but if we'd known wait was that long, would have gone elsewhere. Servings were generous.

Went here on a Thursday morning for breakfast. My husband had a lobster omelette, I had one with portobello mushrooms, bacon, and cheese. Both were very good. Love the spicy hash browns, and the biscuit itself was good but the strawberry butter made it. Had fresh squeezed OJ. Decent prices. Wait staff was wonderful! They took time out to spend... More

This restaurant uses only the freshest ingredients for their meals. All meals are cooked to order, which might a little longer but really worth the wait. Lobster eggs benedict was awesome!

We loved this place! From the Cat's Paw (mildly sweet muffin that can easily be separated into pieces for sharing), to the coffee, to the breakfast entrées. I had the Summer Scramble - absolutely delicious! Eggs scrambled with tomatoes and fresh herbs served with home fries and a house made biscuit with strawberry butter - soooo good. I couldn't finish... More
