Traci's is a discreet little place just past the center of town, going down toward the wharf. It's exterior is nondescript, but that in itself is welcoming, and gives a sense of quiet not found outside many of the other more bustling places in town. When you walk in, the place gives a sense of retro welcoming, the walls painted casually, and framed records on the wall, the tables covered in classic patterns reminiscent of the 80's and 90's. The wait staff will shout you a hello, before asking your preference for seating, and assisting you, the upstairs offering wait looks like an old school dairy bar, and a variety of smaller tables, and then down below it offers almost a cabin-like experience, the ceiling done with a warm gold wood, with heavy beams laid across, and the artwork and birdhouses of locals hung up for visual pleasure, and sale for the appraising eye. The tables in the lower section offer booths, with some larger party seating, and multiple bathrooms mean you won't find yourself doing the awkward dance for a strange audience. The menu offers a variety of sandwiches, breakfast items, and meal dishes, and for the appraising eye there is even healthy options and fruit if you know how to ask just right. They have classic music playing quietly, and I have found myself many lunches sitting down in a booth with my drawing pad, enjoying the quiet atmosphere, good home-style food, a cup of cocoa, and the unobtrusive and compassionate care of the wait staff. The food portions are always fair, and I've never gone hungry after a visit to Traci's, even on a poor man's budget.

Our innkeeper recommended Taci's for a good early breakfast, and he was right. The food was all-around satisfying. The value was OK. The service was exceptionally friendly.

There didn't seem to be any fruits or vegetables on the offered, however. I was really looking for something lighter, and I scoured that menu for a side of fruit or roasted veggies or anything. But no. I'm not entirely convinced that Mainers eat fruit...expect blueberries, of course.

We asked in town where to go for breakfast and the answer was immediately ‘Traci’s’. The outside looks very welcoming with nice planters in the windows.
It is not a fancy place, in fact the seat covers were partly badly torn but we sat comfortably.
We liked the large variety of breakfast items on the menu and lots of them were not ‘run of the mill’. We had 4 different meals and everyone was very good. They were tasty and the portions generous. The service was good too and the prices very reasonable. We also saw people ordering from the lunch menu and the food on their plates looked very inviting. They were local folks and assured us that they never get upset with Traci’s food.

We stopped at Traci's for lunch and found the food, service and atmosphere (50's style) to be excellent. The people who worked there were very nice and helpful. The location was convenient and the prices were very reasonable. Other reviews rate the breakfast as excellent. My sister-in-law left here checkbook at the restaurant and did not discover it until we were 70 miles away back at home. My sister-in-law got a message on her home phone (number was on the checks) from Traci's saying they found the checkbook - which at $100 in cash in it as well. We called them and asked if they would mail it and keep out $20 plus the cost of mailing. They said they would mail it to her but would take no money. Honest food...honest people. Good place to go.

A good breakfast can be found at Traci's. Fried eggs, Omelets and even Eggs Benedikt were tasty. A little on the pricy side.
