The atmosphere was wonderful. The food was outstanding. The service superior. We tried it once and went back the next night to enjoy it again. The black bean soup was delicious as well as their fresh salads and mixed veggies. Everything was exceptional.

4 of us had brunch on Valentine's Day. The corned beef hash was the best I have ever had in a restaurant. My partner had the lemon ricotta gluten-free pancakes which were delicious, light and fluffy. Everyone was very satisfied with there meal choices. Service was a bit slow which made for a leisurely, most enjoyable brunch. Highly recommend.

Not only did this restaurant have a great menu for breakfast, it looks like they were serving great food all day! The breakfast was over the top delicious and they had numerous Gluten Free options, like blueberry pancakes, etc..

I recently dined here for breakfast and quite enjoyed the eggs Benedict I ordered. The decor has a great feel to it. The owners did an excellent job providing the space with a rustic, yet refined feel. However there were just two things that made this visit short of excellent. I found the service to be a little too pushy... More

I brought my two children - ages 7 and 5 - to Ogunquit for a winter weekend getaway. Many of the restaurants were closed but we found the Roost and had breakfast there. The food was amazing - I had a swiss omelet, grilled blueberry muffin, potato cake and bacon. My daughter had the blueberry pancakes and my son a... More

My partner and I scrambled together a last minute wedding in December of 2015. Ron could not have been kinder or more helpful! He provided us with all the information we needed to make good choices and responded quickly to questions. When we arrived, the space was beautifully appointed with mini-white lights, candle sticks filled with sea pebbles, and evergreens.... More

Had a great dinner saturday night 12/19, party of 4. Started at the bar, which is large and very interesting with the tree. It was festively decorated, and the bartender was friendly and attentive. Once we sat down in the dining room, the warmth continued both literally and figuratively. We got a table near the large fireplace, which was burning... More

My wife and I were amazed by the Sunday brunch. We ordered the lemon ricotta pancakes and the blueberry pancakes. They were so delicious and huge! Treat yourself if you like pancakes filled with these flavors. Very nice atmosphere that makes you feel very comfortable.
