Loved this tiny, quaint restaurant in Perkins Cove! Had just finish our walk of Marginal Way and spotted this adorable place. Wound up sitting at the counter, as all tables were filled. Walking through the door was like stepping back into time 50+ years. Knotty pine wainscoting, lots of windows, fresh flowers on each table, gave new perspective on the... More

Definitely a great breakfast choice after your walk along Maginal Way! It's the perfect place to refuel with one if their fantastic omelette a. The service is attentive and you are served at a quick but not too quick pace. It's cozy and a great cafe atmosphere. Just what we were looking for!

We stopped in one morning to fuel up before our morning adventure on Marginal Way and in Perkins Cove. The owner ushered us to our table after a short wait. The food was yummy, the place was clean and the service was good and quick. I will definitely go back on my next trip to Ogunquit.

Breakfast out is always a highlight of our vacations, and this cozy cafe gave us one of our best ever. A large selection of omelets caught our eye, and the crab/asparagus was delectable. One nice touch--because of my gluten issues I declined the toast, so the meal came with extra (and delicious) potatoes instead. The staff was friendly, decor charming,... More

This is an excellent cafe, the food is good and the staff's serving is rapid. The price is the same we pay than we saw on the menu.

This little diner is the perfect place for traditional diner food prepared to perfection. We enjoyed everything from omelettes to the fresh fruit cup that really was a bowl of beautifully prepared melon, blueberries, strawberries, and pineapple. Every dish was presented in a way that would stand up in a fine dining establishment. The waitress was friendly and attentive, so... More

It's been about 5 years since we visited the Cove Cafe--So glad to come back this morning. This is a wonderful breakfast spot. It's so charming--I think I counted only 40 seats, so there will be a wait to get in. It's worth it! The service is spot on, the menu offers plenty of tempting choices and the food is... More

Although we had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated on a holiday weekend, our breakfast was well worth the wait. One of us had the casserole special and the other had pancakes. Both were delicious, served promptly, and very filling. We were pleased to be able to substitute fruit for potatoes with the casserole. Would definitely recommend this... More

My family and I had two GREAT breakfasts here. Highly recommend. My girls loved the Belgian waffles and my husband had a delicious omelet. Smallish place, so you might have to wait a bit to be seated but totally worth it. Great food and a cute atmosphere right in Perkins Cove.
