The food and service here is fantastic. Unless you order a cappucino or espresso, expect to get your own coffee...but it's worth it. Quaint atmosphere that's a little too cluttered with kitch for my taste...but this would not hinder me from returning. The staff was friendly, the food was great, it is a true hometown establishment. If you want good... More

I have eaten at Mama D's many times and each time the food is home made, fresh, and delicious. I have enjoyed breakfast and lunch menus and have always enjoyed every meal. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous. The atmosphere is cafe style and very comfortable for family, or just a great get together for a casual meal with... More

Usually when we visit Boothbay Harbor it's during the summer when the town is bustling and all the seaside restaurants are open. This time we visited in mid-January so it was slim pickings because many of the restaurants are closed for the season. Fortunately we came across this charming little cafe. As soon as you walk in, you feel right... More

Loved the food on two different mornings (eggs, oatmeal, waffles, pumpkin raisin bread) plus the self-service coffee bar is the best. Also the place feels like you are in someone's home- very comfy and welcoming! 👍❤️☕️

The location is great, just outside of the crowded touristy downtown. The decor is eclectic, quirky and charming but also a little cluttered. The things they choose to place on the walls could use some editing. There is plenty of parking around back although it is unorganized. The service is warm and welcoming (for Maine) and also fairly quick. We... More

My girlfriend and I went in there one morning to get breakfast. This was back near the 4th of July so I forgot what we ordered but it was pretty good. We sat at the bar area inside the restaurant where there were two servers right in front of us, and it seemed like we were sitting in their own... More

Quirky, friendly, great staff and wonderful breakfasts. Get your own coffee in a variety of old mugs and choose from a very creative breakfast menu

We tried this place based on recommendation. It's a limited menu but the food was very good. The blueberry cake was divine. The blueberry pancake was full of blueberries. Our waitress may have been new but seemed uninformed and informative as well as slow. But overall I would try this place again. It's a nice older home setting and was... More

Expect it to be busy. Expect half of the clientele to know each other. We went there for Sunday brunch. Great coffee, atmosphere, and food. Ex
