Ate here on a Wednesday morning. Great location, across from LL Bean Factory store. I had the sausage Benedict, the eggs were perfectly cooked and it was delicious. Service was great as well. Definitely recommend.

The food was fair here. For lunch we tried the lobster mac and cheese, which was not too exciting. The lobster grilled cheese sandwich was much tastier. This would be a good restaurant to stop with the whole family because of the many choices on...More
