“A Place to go out of the way for! (Gluten Free TOO!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We popped in without reservations at about 7:00 on a Wednesday night... the place was crowded, and they said it would be a bit of a wait, but we could sit in their cute Bar. We decided to take them up on the offer since there was nobody else there. The Bar is had about 6 barstools around the counter, and a very friendly bar keeper who served us.
We ordered the Grilled Tuna, and the Seafood Noodle Bowl. Both were Gluten Free, and both tasted very very good.
Even though the atmosphere was not exactly what we started out looking for, we had a wonderful time, and ate very well. I was happy we went.

“Delicious Sunday Brunch in Downtown Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were looking for a place to eat last Sunday in downtown Bar Harbor. While there are many restaurants on the street, we followed a sign into parking for Cafe This Way down a side street. We had a delicious, cooked to order Sunday brunch--I had a special omelet with bacon, portobello mushrooms and grilled fennel bulbs--my wife had McThisWay sandwich in an Engliss muffin. The porch is dog friendly, which Riley appreciated, and the service is pleasant and quick. We chatted with the interesting people at the next table--they were locals who confirmed that Cafe This Way is one of the very best places in town. Highly recommended. They ordinarily serve breakfast and dinner.

“Glad we went "this way"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

While vacationing in Bar Harbor with my granddaughters, and being a rainy morning, we wanted a good, warm feeling breakfast. We found it at Café This Way. GREAT service, excellent eggs "over easy" and French Toast to die for. The atmosphere was uplifting and friendly. Definitely a do again

“Delightful Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

My blueberry pancakes were more blueberries than pancake. Just delicious. Wide menu and great for pre-hike loading.
