“This cove is a perfect rose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

I've patroned a few times, with a mixture of company (wife, family & friends). I've always had a outstanding meal and the same has been true for the others with me. The owner is always very pleasant, many times she is greeting customers with her homade fudge. I've always appreciated that she is engaged with her patrons. She'll walkaround check on you, deliver your order, clean tables or your plates away. She never makes you feel rushed as in she wants to turn the table.

Her staff is always pleasant, greeting you with big smiles.

Haddock sandwich is my favorite. It's a lot to eat even for dinner. The role is baked fresh on premis, you can get it set up anyway you want, just ask the truley aim to please. I usually get the sauteed vegitables (when available) instead of the fries.

Hamburger is a must have. Many go to Willies, but Rose cove has the best burger in town.

Desert is a mix of options, something home made, fudge, or the ice cream sunday bar


They have indoor and outdoor seating. Plus at night off to the right there is a firepitt with a bunch of Adirondack chairs you can hang around sitting enjoying the fire.

Tips - They dont have a liquor license so you can bring you own wine, beer, etc. Ask for wine glasses

“Nice way to close out the day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We've been going to Rose Cove for several years. We have friends who's daughter LOVES your lobster rolls!! I always enjoy your haddock sandwich. Your staff is friendly and efficient. And sitting outside watching the center of town isn't a bad thing either!! See you next summer!

“A luncheon favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

weekend after weekend I travel to Ogunquit Maine and make Rose Cove Cafe my place to retreat from the beach and grab lunch. A great little menu with the friendliest workers and good food. If you have not tried Rose Cove Cafe in Oquinquit, I recommend you give it a try.

“Great food at great prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I like how they pass out homemade fudge to customers, even if you don't buy anything...most likely after tasting the fudge, you will though...ha ha Also have great sandwiches, salads & for dessert an ice cream bar with all the toppings ! Not a long wait to get served either. Very friendly staff.

“Great fudge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Very good value cafe and loved sampling Rose's fudge. Look out for her offering free samples in the evening which was a great present for our relatives in Canada. Salted caramel and coffee and walnut were my favourites but blueberry was good too.
