I don't get to Mother's as much as I want to, but I have never had a bad meal. The chocolate brownies, the Lightning Strikes, the Grandpa Jack!! I can't wait until next year.

First stopped there last year and would not miss it this year. A great place to pick up a sandwich for a picnic on the rocks in Acadia! The prices were average but the food was better than average

We had the Grandpa Jack & Summer Kitchen sandwiches. WOW! Absolutely delicious, very generous portions, great quality. Service was prompt & very friendly. What a sweet little place! If we're ever in the area again, will surely stop by.

My title says it all. A delicious (and may I say HUGE) sandwich at a reasonable price. The service is great and the quality is even better. "Real Good Food" speaks for itself.

I went here twice while visiting my sister. The sandwiches are so good. It is easier to order ahead and then pick up.

Strictly lunch (although there are some great muffins and coffee) -- always busy with visitors and locals grabbing the BEST sandwiches. My favorite is actually the egg salad -- but I think the most popular is the meatloaf. Vegetarian options as well. Call ahead!
