Yes, the other pastries are delicious too. And the food is good. I had the lazy lobster lunch, but seeing the lobster sliders go by I wish I'd have got those instead! My partner got a very tasty BBQ burger.

Food is awesome. Close to home cooked. Plenty of food, on day two asked if we could have half of eggs, sausage and biscuits. No problem and was full after that. Will come again.

The blueberry donuts from the bakery are so good that we make special trips from SW Harbor just to pick up a few with some coffee and the Sunday NYTimes. Restaurant is also good.

We were looking for a light lunch, quick and not expensive. So pleased to find the Bakery and Restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed a great fish chowder. Simple but delicious. Excellent service, left very happy. Around $15.00 for lunch for 2 - can't ask for more.

The breakfast cafes in Bar Harbor all had waiting lines out the doors, so hubby and I meandered down to NE Harbor and stumbled upon this humble little restaurant on the main drag. What luck!! Our omelets were outstanding, cooked to perfection and came with...More
