The specials are the best! I love the back rib, rib and wing, and Greek specials! The staff are friendly and personable.

We went here as a small family group for breakfast. Our experience was positive as soon as we walked inside. This quaint cafe has nice seating and a welcoming atmosphere. There were 4 adults and a young child. A high chair was provided and the...owner was friendly and accommodative. The breakfast menu has something for everyone. When our food arrived we were all amazed at the size of the portions and the quality of the food. There was not a hungry person in the group when we left. I would return to this cafe without hesitation whenever I am in Orono. This is definitely a restaurant to visit when in this small town and I recommend it. The picture is of the breakfast I had.More

Such a tasty breakfast for the four of us. Generous quantities served by a very pleasant server. The peameal bacon was especially yummy. Highly recommend this comfortable diner in downtown Orono.

The food took forever to make. The surver was not friendly at all. And the food was nothing special.

The breakfast menu is fantastic! Large portions always cooked perfectly as requested. Lunch & dinner menu has a very impressive selection, something for everyone. *They have fantastic poutine, however; the gravy is a bit salty (I don't mind but have heard some people mentioning it).

After our first tournament game in near by Orno Arena we walked over to the cafe. We called ahead and they jammed all 30 of us in. Considering the number of players and parents the service was fast and excellent. The food was great, fast,...tasty and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend it and we will be back during our next tournament.More

Our sports team was in Orono recently and we invaded the Country Café during the morning breakfast period. The Café filled quickly but the staff did yeoman's duty serving all of us. Coffee refills were timely, food was excellent, I had a western sandwich which...was delicious. Service was great especially considering the many little one's in attendance.More

Went here for the first time and it was not great. I ordered a all egg white spinach omelette. It was cooked on the same grill (spot) as the bacon ham and sausage. I couldn’t eat it. The grease and the taste was horrible. The...potatoes are cooked in a huge mound on the grill and almost reheated as ordered. I ate here years ago and it was amazing. I’m thinking new owners. Be mindful of other pallets. Tell customers you cook all food on one grill and use the bacon grease to cook your eggs. I didn’t complain just politely left my plate as it arrived minus the toast. My husband couldn’t eat his ham as the bite he took he said it was like rubber. Our waitress was great!!More

Reviewing again as I still can't get over how good this place is! Stopped by for lunch with my wife and we ended up splitting a Clubhouse sandwich as we both were not that hungry. WOW we both were amazed that a real chicken breast...was on the sandwich, ingredients were very fresh and the fries were quite a heap! We both ended up very full and couldn't even finish the fries! What a GREAT place to eat!More
