After a day of exploring Acadia National Park we were ready for comfort food. The pizza was great and the baked goods were awesome. Knew we had made the right decision when we saw a steady crowd coming in.

The pizza is delicious. And when you can carry it home and eat it on the porch, overlooking the harbor, it's perfect. I have to say that I think the bread is terrible. It needs salt and is weirdly dry. The cookies are fine. Honestly,...More

Great spot. I always try to stop for a coffe and scone when passing through town. They sell quality baked goods, and I usually get a week's supply when visiting.

My wife and I visited Little Notch in July, 2016 and enjoyed good food and wonderful baked goods. I had a flank steak sandwich, which was quite savory. A large cookie for dessert hit the spot.

The blueberry and strawberry hand pies were flaky, sweet and delicious. The scones were a good size and tasty. The favorite was a loaf of their raising walnut bread - outstanding.

We tried three items and none were tasty. The lemon cookie must have been baked with corn meal, it had hard small bits that got stuck in our molars and impossible to chew- like tiny pebbles. The BLT wrap had a T that was grey!!...More

This cafe was in walking distance from our cottage. What a great find!! We got some sandwiches to go and took them down to bass harbor lighthouse for a picnic on the rocks to watch the sunset. So so delicious!! Never had a desert here...More

We love getting our fresh bread here. They have racks of fresh French, Ciabatta, whole wheat, sour dough, organic, etc...and will slice it for you. It's a wonderful bakery in addition to being a good cafe, and their display case is filled with diet-busting treats,...More

Little Notch offers yummy bread, coffee, and breakfast / lunch treats. It is terrific that they've opened up a spot in downtown Southwest Harbor.

Bread like edges and thin crust pizza. Pepperoni and ricotta cheese was our choice for toppings. The sauce was delicious and the cheese was nice too. Overall this was above average pizza.
