Little Notch is so delicious! We stayed in Southwest Harbor for a week and ate here twice. Once we stopped in for sandwiches for a picnic in Acadia National Park. Another time just for the croissants and amazing bakery.

This was one of the best and cheapest meals that I had all week. I stopped here for lunch. The pizza and sandwiches are excellent and the prices are very reasonable - It is approx $20 for a large pizza, which isn't necessarily cheap, but...More

Stopped in for an afternoon snack and purchased 2 cookies, a glass of tea and a bottle of water for around $10. Tea was weak and cookies were stale. My guess is the cookies were baked more than a week ago from the taste.
