The owner was very friendly, but we were disappointed in the coffee. The cappuccinos had a burnt coffeetaste and the foam had large bubbles in it. The frothy large-bubble foam was much different from the silky micro-foam that you expect in a good cappuccino.

This place is great! Small little coffee shop with great customer service, best coffee in town and lobster rolls to die for. Very pet friendly which was nice to see. Highly recommend this for your coffee needs!

You would have never thought that a combination of coffee, hot dogs, and lobster rolls would work out as perfectly as it does in one location. If you have any doubts, go and see the man, the myth, the legend - owners Chris and Jen run an awesome place.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon last week and unfortunately, the B&B we were staying at didn't have iced coffee and we needed to find a place. I searched on TripAdvisor and read all the great reviews about Coffee Hound and knew we had a good place to go that was also within walking distance of where we stayed.

We stopped by there daily...sometimes twice a day as the coffee is that good. And on one of the afternoon visits after hiking iN Acadia, we had to at least try a hot dog. I highly recommend the Maine Red...a classic pork and beef dog, served on a perfectly buttered grilled bun and plenty of toppings including fresh chopped onions, relish, spicy brown mustard too.

Chris is also just a great guy. Who knew that a business owner in Bar Harbor, ME would be able to strike up a conversation with me about the Claddaugh Pub in Lawrence, MA? ha ha ha. He also made an excellent dinner recommendation to my wife and I which was probably the 2nd best meal we ate all we week up there.

Bottom line is this...go and see Chris, grab a cup of coffee, try a hot dog, and ask for his local expertise on the best places to dine and visit while in bar Harbor, ME.

Big thank you to Chris and his staff from my wife Kerri and I.

Read another reviewer mention this coffee shop having great lobster rolls; we just finished four of them (for 4 persons); great lunch; lot of lobster meat which is not always the case at every place we have tried. Great stop right on Main St. even if stopping in Bar Harbor on a cruise boat, very close. We will go back again.

stopped in for coffee 2 times and my companion wanted to see some dogs - we were disappointed both time but the really great coffee we had both times more then made up for that failing.
Had a nice long conversation with the owner the 2nd time and nice to hear that someone is enthusiastic about their place and has plans to improve as time allows
Place is very small and not real easy to find but it is in a good location and well worth the effort to look for it
