Just your every day decent priced small town cafe. Nothing special except small town vibe and real old school waitresses. Love going there to just relax and unwind and be simple again.

The docent at the nearby Owl Head Lighthouse recommended the Rockland Cafe as a “comfy mom & pop cafe” right in town, with great food and friendly staff and informal atmosphere. We missed the lunch rush, arriving about 2:00 PM on a Monday afternoon. We...More
