The staff was great, the food was great, but you couldn't carry on a conversation across a small table because it is very loud in there. Sorry there is nothing to soak up any sound.

I have been to the Home Kitchen Cafe a number of times, and it has consistently been a wonderful experience. Although it is often crowded, requiring a wait during peak season, it's worth the wait. I love their corned beef hash and poached eggs. The homemade bread is wonderful toasted. It may not be as cheap as your typical diner,... More

i am pretty fussy about my eggs but the electric stove at my timeshare was less than perfect so treated myself to breakfast here one morning. Arrived at a good time and got a nice seat at the counter. Coffee (iced) arrived immediately. I ordered eggs scrambled, on the wet side with crispy bacon and one piece of wheat toast.... More

Everything is homemade. Eaten here several times and have yet to have a bad meal. Try the fritata, its guaranteed to fill you up.

Was expecting way more with all the good reviews I read. But the omelet i ordered wasn't a omelet. They only but the egg on top of the toppings I ordered. Very disappointing. Very little attention was given to us while we were eating. Wanted to ask for some ketchup but she never walked passed our table. I understand that... More

Oh my, those cinnamon rolls! Light and yeasty and packed with cinnamon goodness. What a terrific find for the ultimate Maine breakfast! From the locally roasted coffee, to the homemade bread to the truly sinful cinnamon rolls, a great way to start a vacation day. I can't wait for a reason to visit Rockland again!

Ate breakfast here and could not have been more pleased! Hubby had (homemade) Biscuits and Gravy and I had the Farmer's Omelet - literally loaded with ham, bacon, sausage, potatoes, onions, bell peppers and cheddar cheese. We ate at the counter as the restaurant, despite the time of year, stayed super busy and had a wait for tables. The ambience... More

I have enjoyed lunch and dinner at this restaurant before, but the breakfast I had recently was disappointing and seemed overpriced. The two eggs in the Florentine Eggs Benedict could have been poached longer, and the "housemade" hollandaise was thin and not very flavorful. At $9.99, I think the eggs should come with hash browns, but they cost $2 extra.... More

Seemed like a lot of locals like this restaurant and I can see why. We had a wonderful breakfast when visiting here last week. Our waiter was friendly and he was on the ball checking in with us several times to make sure we were happy with our meal and refilling our drinks. I had the home fries with two... More
