Our friends at whose Inn we were staying joined us for breakfast at the Cove Cafe. The Cove Cafe was their recommendation and as it was in waking distance of the Inn this was a great choice. When we entered the dining room we were immediately welcomed and seated. The ambiance made it feel like we were eating breakfast in... More

We had a great mushroom, spinach and cheese omelette and poached eggs with fruit salad. The staff was delightful and conversational. One of the few reasons to go visit Perkins Cove.

I've been wanting to go for a few years, and finally made it! Only 2 parking spaces, so plan to park a few blocks away at the Perkins Cove lot ($4 per hour or $7 for 2 hours). Easy walk from most inns in town, or walk down the Marginal Way and walk back to burn off your breakfast! I... More

Nice little family run place, just a few tables and a counter so you may need to wait if they're busy. Good service, polite staff, try the blueberry stuffed french toast or eggs benedict. Both are excellent!

I chose Cove Café for my final brunch (and meal) for my first trip to Ogunquit, and it was a perfect way to end the trip. The small dining area has a modern-country flair and feels very homey. Staff were efficient and friendly. The menu options include lots of traditional American breakfast dishes, and everything that arrived at the table... More

This restaurant was almost across the street from the touristy one and far surpasses it. Very cozy atmosphere, extremely clean, great service and great food. Our second time there.

We stumbled upon this little restaurant by accident when we couldn't find parking space in Perkins Cove and had to walk in from a remote parking lot. We passed by Cove Cafe and read the menu and it sounded great so we decided this was where we would have breakfast the next morning. We had the Belgian waffles with mascarpone... More

Small, Family run place. Read their story in the photo. Extremely popular breakfast place. Long waits at peak hours and weekends. Loved the Maine Blueberry Pancakes. Others had omelettes and salmon breakfast served to perfection. It's towards the end of Beach Street.

Thank Akhil B
