Myself and my wife each had an Omelet, very running, very little cheese, I even ask for mine to be well done, couldn't eat it. Kids had Pancakes, they where ok for them, but very sweet. Found it overall a little expensive for what you get also.

Stopped in around 12:30 as we'd heard so much positive about this restaurant. Nice varied menu with high quality ingredients. The food was terrific. At 1pm our waitress apparently went off duty and no one seemed to replace her. When we asked for our waitress the hostess said she was off and said she was covering and walked away. No... More

This little cafe struck us as being one of the best run establishments in the area. The hostess has the enviable task of managing the waiting line and seating the impatient patrons, which she does smoothly. When she is not seating people, she is bussing tables, checking on how diners are doing, or processing the tabs. When somebody gets up... More

We found Home Kitchen by accident and were so happy we did. We had lunch the first day and went back for breakfast the next. Will definitely go back next time we're in Maine. It all looks delicious but I had the lobster roll for lunch and french toast for breakfast. Delicious!

Home Kitchen Cafe was on our list of restarants to visit during our week in the Rockland Maine area. We finally made it on our last day. But, we were glad we did. When we entered we were given a choice of a table right inside the door or the counter. We took the last table. I ordered a server... More

Excellent food, unusual combos, as well as traditional fare. It's a little pricey, but nice experience. Closes at 3 pm. The Thai or Bohemian Salads are good. Baked goods look good, but I refrained. I love this place, but my husband thinks it's a little expensive for the portions. I say it's averaged priced.

We ate here three out of 4 days ( they are closed on Tuesdays) for breakfast. The migas are the best I've had in the US. Huge portions, real maple syrup available, good coffee. They really do make everything there. Go.
