Reviewed yesterday NEW

Fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade "catclaw" or biscuit, thick bacon. Served with a smile. It may cost a bit more but it is totally worth the stop. Expect to wait it is that good - we were there late May mid week and it was packed.

Restaurant gets busy especially in the weekend, so get there early to avoid the wait. We got their special dishes lobster omelette and lobster egg benedict. Interesting combination but surprisingly good. Maple latte was good and blueberry pancake was really good. We went back second time and I got the Maine blueberry pancakes again because they were so good the... More

Charming place on one of the side streets. Great food and comfortable seating -- lovely people! Getting the tiny distance off the busy main drag is worth it!

Everything here is great, but be sure to get the biscuits and strawberry butter with whatever else you get. The spicy sausage is also good, get it in the moose tracks pancakes for something different. If you don't want to wait, arrive before ten.

Amazing food, amazing service, amazing environment. All of the reviews are true. We arrived as the doors opened after enjoying a foggy sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. We were greeted by Sara with a warm smile and hot coffee! Blueberry pancakes, breakfast burrito, the biscuit with STRAWBERRY BUTTER were devoured by my friend and I . The only downside was trying...

2 cats is a lovely cafe style restaurant with bright open rooms. We loved all the paintings and made us miss our (2 cats) at home! Although I told my kids about the two kitty's that would run around we came to the restaurant with disappointing news that the kitties were gone to homes. Nonetheless the food was just as... More

We visited this funky restaurant/cafe in mid-April, before the in-season crowds descended. My wife and I each had an amazing breakfast. She had eggs benedict with smoked salmon and I had the lobster omelete (loaded with lobster). Each meal came with their famous homemade biscuits, excellent home fries, and some fruit. The coffee was excellent. The atmosphere was homey and... More

Unlike some reviewers we had a wonderful experience at 2 cats. We arrived about 8:30 and received excellent service the entire visit. Our waitress even gave us recommendations for other great restaurants in the area. The lobster omelette was good as was the potatoes and spicy sausage. But the two stars of the meal were the blueberry pancakes and the... More

I came here for a mid morning breakfast before taking a walk around downtown Bar Harbor to enjoy the sunshine. They have good quality food and so many choices.
