I have been to Cafe This Way several times. I enjoy the atmosphere, and selections at breakfast. Had dinner there for the first time and it did not disappoint. Interesting selections on the menu.

Cane here for breakfast whilst staying at the Mount Desert motel. Food and service were both excellent and good value for money. The place was busy which showed how popular it was. Had great blueberry pancakes.

Breakfast was the best ever. Staff wasn't. Would come back for the food just wish the experience was better. Would give this place another shot.

I don't think there is a lunch menu. The restaurant is open until 1 p.m. on Sundays, 11:30 a.m. the other days of the week for breakfast.
