Generous portions, delicious Menu , seating is close but great for conversation and gossip....lol....The folks that own the place are behind the stove and everything that leaves the kitchen is worthy of applause ....

I have been a Home Kitchen patron for years and make it a point to stop there whenever I'm traveling through Rockland. My breakfasts and lunches have always been delicious and the wait staff has always been attentive and friendly (with great senses of humor). I've introduced this restaurant to many of my friends who visit Maine in the summer.... More

When we vacation in Maine, the Home Kitchen Cafe is a must visit. We usually get the haddock sandwich, which is awesome, but everything we've ever tried there is simply top notch quality. I could almost move to Rockland because of this restaurant alone, to me it is that good! This place is a must stop if you're in the... More

The staff was great, the food was great, but you couldn't carry on a conversation across a small table because it is very loud in there. Sorry there is nothing to soak up any sound.

I have been to the Home Kitchen Cafe a number of times, and it has consistently been a wonderful experience. Although it is often crowded, requiring a wait during peak season, it's worth the wait. I love their corned beef hash and poached eggs. The homemade bread is wonderful toasted. It may not be as cheap as your typical diner,... More

i am pretty fussy about my eggs but the electric stove at my timeshare was less than perfect so treated myself to breakfast here one morning. Arrived at a good time and got a nice seat at the counter. Coffee (iced) arrived immediately. I ordered eggs scrambled, on the wet side with crispy bacon and one piece of wheat toast.... More

Everything is homemade. Eaten here several times and have yet to have a bad meal. Try the fritata, its guaranteed to fill you up.

Was expecting way more with all the good reviews I read. But the omelet i ordered wasn't a omelet. They only but the egg on top of the toppings I ordered. Very disappointing. Very little attention was given to us while we were eating. Wanted to ask for some ketchup but she never walked passed our table. I understand that... More

Oh my, those cinnamon rolls! Light and yeasty and packed with cinnamon goodness. What a terrific find for the ultimate Maine breakfast! From the locally roasted coffee, to the homemade bread to the truly sinful cinnamon rolls, a great way to start a vacation day. I can't wait for a reason to visit Rockland again!

Ate breakfast here and could not have been more pleased! Hubby had (homemade) Biscuits and Gravy and I had the Farmer's Omelet - literally loaded with ham, bacon, sausage, potatoes, onions, bell peppers and cheddar cheese. We ate at the counter as the restaurant, despite the time of year, stayed super busy and had a wait for tables. The ambience... More
