“Best coffee in Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

A cute shop with a mocha that puts Starbucks to shame. Great treats at a reasonable price as well. Owner is friendly and adds that personal touch. Come here to feel welcomed and indulge yourself in great coffee and home made treats.

“Best in Bar Harbor-and beyond.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Finally a coffee house that serves coffee that doesn't water down when iced, is loaded with flavor when hot and doesn't leave a bitter after taste. Starbucks, Dunkin' and anybody else could learn a lot from Coffee Hound. Add the fact that dogs are welcome and the owner caters to them as much and it spells the perfect place to take a break. Can't wait to get back there!

“Excellent Coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

The coffee is very tasty - and the service is excellent. If you're looking for something a little different from the cliché of Starbucks, Coffee Hound is a great place to start.

Walking down the streets of Bar Harbor in the rain drinking my Acadia blend, life is good!

“Stop here if you want good coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Good coffee, friendly staff, good selection of coffee, reasonably priced. Stop here if you normally stop at Starbucks. If you have a pet, they had free dog biscuits.

“alternative to hotel coffee..hooray”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

I scoped out a coffee shop so I did not have to have hotel coffee and I am glad I found the Coffee Hound Coffee Bar! Delicious Latte, friendly staff and owner. Try the blueberry hand pie, made just for them from native Maine blueberries. I was skeptical about having a French Macaron but Chris gave me a sample and then I was hooked and went back for more. Seriously, a delicious French Macaron in Bar Harbor, Maine....what a find, thank you again Chris.
Coffee Hound Coffee Bar is also in the perfect location, directly across from the pier where the cruise ships arrive and depart and the beginning and end of the lovely Shore Walk. Don't miss it when you are in Bar Harbor.
