We arrived in Maine on a Saturday and had to wait till Wednesday morning for this promising-looking place to open. I hope the place was having an "off" day, but I don't think so. Three of us had two truly terrible meals and one okay one.

The coffee and pancakes are quite good, but the famous syrup (at least the stuff on the table) was tasteless. Perhaps the fancy and highly priced bottles for sale are better, but we didn't want to chance it. The waffles are inedible; don't they know a Belgian style waffle is supposed to be crisp, not limp and mushy? Orange juice was tasteless bottled stuff. Bacon ordered "extra crisp" was soggy and limp. Scrambled eggs were overbeaten and had texture as if they were made from army supply powdered eggs; but in fairness the poached eggs were pretty good. Service was friendly but very slow. And the prices are definitely not cheap!

If you want really good breakfast go to Thomaston Cafe or Home Kitchen Cafe; for similar prices you'll get truly wonderful food. This place goes on our Definitely Avoid list! What a disappointment!

The place to go for delicious maple syrup from Maine. Great gift ideas and lots of good food items to brighten your breakfasts. I send our summer visitors here for a taste of Maine to take home.
