We had a delicious lunch at Hitty's during our visit to Great Cranberry. I had a great curried chicken salad sandwich and a nice glass of real unsweetened tea. Others in our group loved the lobster BLT and the turkey club. There's ample seating on...deck and lawn, under umbrellas, and you can visit the historical society and a gift shop and thrift store, too! Hitty's is a great part of an island visit.More

We ate lunch here everyday during our weeklong stay on GBI. Despite a limited menu, we were very happy with the choices. Cezar and his staff were very friendly.

We were there to wander the island for a couple hours and have lunch. Staff was friendly and tolerant of all my questions about local “life”. We had the lobster roll and the curry chicken sandwich with cranberry lemonade. All of it was great! If...we went back we would probably try something else only because there were many good sounding choices on the menu.More

I can’t say enough about this gem. I chose to walk to it from the dock, and it made me appreciate the essence of the island. Cesar greeted me at the order window, and became my friend the next few hours with my toddler and...baby. I ordered the lobster roll and it was delicious. My son had a PB&J that was made perfect (I stole a few bites). They have sandwiches, soups, kids meals, burger, milkshakes coffee and ice cream. I’m probably forgetting something. Get yourself the refreshing cranberry lemonade! The volunteers around the cafe were so friendly and helpful. We missed our ferry, and had the pleasure of relaxing here another 2 hours. My children didn’t mind- there was a lego table and an arts and crafts cottage next door. Ponds to explore behind the store as well. I can’t wait to return!!More

Here is a nice place to grab a quick sandwich while exploring Great Cranberry Island. Full health compliant employees get the job done well. Outside seating area and walk up ordering and meal pick up.

Hitty’s cafe was a real Gem. The owner was super friendly and engaging (from a distance during Covid). The lobster BLT was amazing. Cute little place. Only disappointment- no Beer :(.

An outstanding destination for a real Down East dining experience - that is to say "friendly local". Cezar Ferreira handles the cooking and preparations single handily - which in the crowded summer weekends might entail a small wait. The clam chowder is the best on...Mount Desert Island. The lobster rolls, excellent - packed with meat and little else. An easy ride on the Mail Boat from Northeast Harbor or Southwest Harbor. Worth a Journey!More

We happened up at Hitty’s while taking a walk and since it was too early for lunch, we stopped for a cup of tea. The owner was so friendly, we decided to come back later for lunch. It was THE BEST lobster roll we had...while in Maine and the clam chowder was also delicious. A fun, casual place to go. Thanks, Cesar, for the warm welcome. Linda and Phil from GeorgiaMore

We went thinking this would be a fun destination, no real expectations. I don’t like to leave bad reviews and usually don’t, but feel I needed to warn others. While the food was decent & just a bit overpriced (which we understood since it’s all...imported), the guy there was awful and appeared to hate island visitors. No greeting, just a cold stare when we approached, then no eye contact & rude comments when we ordered. Pretty island but next time we’d skip and head to Little Cranberry to check out the restaurant there, plus it seemed like a more lively place.More

We took a boat from NE Harbor to Great Cranberry and walked the one paved road. Came upon Hitt's Cafe and stopped for lunch. If was 'off season' on a very quiet and friendly island. Hitt's turns out to be a focal point for activities...of the residents on the island. The owner knew all about the place and apparently very involved other than operating the Cafe. A nice and relaxing stopover for a simple lunch and a friendly chat.More
