“In Southwest Harbor; Skip the Salads … Go for the Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

Our innkeeper recommended this lunch spot in Northwest Harbor. Good recommendation. What we did: ordered one ham and swiss (this was very good) and three salads (pretty ordinary) which we proceeded to take with us and eat at the Seawall. What we should have done: ordered one of the pizzas! While waiting for our sandwiches to be prepared, I saw a number of fresh and interesting “artisanal” pizzas come out and be served in the little café. Darn! Should’ve ordered one of those! Anyways, three stars for the sandwich/salad combinations and five stars for the presumably superb pizzas. Overall four stars. Lesson: look around at what other people are eating before you order.
(By the way: the Seawall was cool).

“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2010

Relaxed decor. Great for families or people wanting a very simple meal. Fabulous pizza! Thin crust with excellent cheese and sauce. Not your everyday run-of-the-mill pizza.

“Almost good pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2010

Ordered pizza with sweet peppers and black olives, which they said they had when we specifically asked, and received a pizze with red peppers that were cured in salt brine. Made the pizza virtually inedible. Ordered another pizza with mushroom and sausage and it was good. Pizza crust was very good. Thin and crisp. Thought the pizza was way overpriced compared to what we are accustomed to paying in Phila. But then this is Maine.

“Best food on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2009

Little Notch Pizza cafe is wonderful. We went there every day while on Mt. Desert Island on vacation. The sandwiches were delicious and so filling after a morning or day of hiking or biking. The baked items were great also. The bread is the best we had ever had. We brought home loaves of it. This little cafe has some of the best food (by far) on the island and definitely the best pizza that we have ever had in Maine.

“They forgot to make our pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2009

We ordered some drinks, a sub and a pizza. We left and walked the town. We came back for the pizza and they had forgotten to make it.??? They made one as fast as they could and it was very good, but the fact that we had to wait twice as long for a pizza than we should have was disconcerting...
