Great place for breakfast. Reasonable prices. The place fills up, so go early.

We had the following:

Drinks:
Hot Chocolate
Selection of teas

Main Courses:
Granola with yogurt with fruit - fresh and crunchy
Blueberry pancakes - the local favorite done well
Vegetable eggs benedict with home fries - the best eggs benedicts in the area. The sauce is done well

We found this place through my Happy Cow app which tells me where I can find vegan food. I was nervous that with the name "cafe" in its name, it was going to be really casual and not a good place for a nice dinner with my husband - but it was a totally cute restaurant! There's cool artwork on the walls, bookshelves with old books, and a variety of different style tables (the first night we went there the table had glitter embedded into its design; the second night we went back we had a table with cartoons about Cafe This Way embedded into it!). The first night I got a dish with chickpeas, quinoa, butternut squash and tofu (tasty); the second night I got the Asian salad as a starter (it was huge - and so delicious) and the Bento plate (every bit of it was fantastic)! I also had sorbet for dessert the first night and that was very good.

We went back for breakfast our last morning in town and I got the tofu scramble. It was very similar in flavor to the flavors of the Bento plate - soy sauce flavored veggies mixed with the tofu. It was good but the only thing that made it feel breakfasty was that they mixed in some potatoes with it.

Vegan-friendly options are slim in Bar Harbor so if you're vegan or just looking for healthier food - check out Cafe This Way!

This restaurant is conveniently located within a block or so from the main drag, but relatively hidden. Nevertheless, I have been told the the breakfast line is huge. Looks like a little house with a porch, much like a roadside lobster place, but is a big surprise inside with vaulted ceilings. Wonderful omelets. It is not open for lunch. At night, decor is subtly dressed up. Varied traditional menu- but refined. Small bar. I had excellent lamb. Reservations recommended.

Cafe This Way is an attractive cafe that provides a good solid traditional breakfast. Quick service and friendly waiter. We were in and out in about 40 minutes.
