  • Great stop off. Salad was super fresh and the staff a delight. The place was spotlessly clean and very reasonably priced. Recommend
  • Popped in for a quick bite. Had a really tasty crab cake and a milkshake. Only regret was not getting a slice of the gigantic Blueberry pie.
  • The food is outstanding! The best homemade pies on Mount Desert Island. I didn't give a 5 star because when they're busy (almost every time) the service can be very slow it's hard for them to keep up the demand with lines out the door. Worth the wait!
  • Very friendly staff, amazing ice cream, and all around great atmosphere
  • Ice cream was delicious! Great service and wonderful atmosphere!
