Certainly not what it used to be. Ever since the college took over they now have a very large corporate catering company running the place. Food was by far sub par it is the same crap they serve in the cafeteria. Had a manager standing at counter the while time barking orders and telling the cook how to cook really! ?!? Very disappointed I'm a life long salem resident and sad to be writing this.

Located in an old trailer, it was an interesting place for a good quality, inexpensive breakfast. There were busy, but service was still fast.

Restaurant tucked a way by the harbor in bass harbor. Great view of the harbor and the docks with colorful lobster traps. You are so close to the water you can watch the tide come in. Food was great and there is an outdoor patio. The restaurant is is near the Bass harbor lighthouse.
